On Wednesday images of the purported Nokia EOS 41MP surfaced on the internet. The images show that the front and the sides of the phone look similar to the Lumia 920 but the hump shows the Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) 808 Pureview.
Nokia EOS 41MP Images:
These images, which may or may not be real, show what looks like could be the rear shell of the Lumia complete with a yellow design and polycarbonate body. According to Tom Warren from The Verge, the rear of the alleged EOS includes what looks like inserts for an attachable wireless charging-enabled cover. Nokia recently launched its Lumia 925 with an aluminum body, but the company also teased "a great summer of announcements".
An update surfaced on Twitter and this image showed something that looked like an in-tact lens on the device. If this image is correct, the Nokia EOS will feature PureView brand, Carl Zeiss lens and xenon flash. Judging by the reports of this upcoming phone, it sounds like the Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) EOS will be a boon for serious phone photographers and it might give them leverage against the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone and Samsung Galaxy S4.
This Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) phone is expected to be introduced on July 9 and should launch in stores sometime during the late summer or early fall. The highly anticipated iPhone 5S is expected to launch in stores around the same time. Although it's unlikely the Nokia EOS can downright compete with the iPhone 5S for overall smartphone, they could deter some photographers and camera fans away from the iPhone.
Finnish tech giant Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) has failed to enjoy the same level of success as their top competition has. With that said, Nokia still manages to sell phones and their alliance with the Windows brand certainly has helped them to some degree. Only time will tell if Nokia makes a splash with the upcoming Nokia EOS.
