Next Big Day for Nokia
NYC EVENT---Zoom ReinventedJuly 11th, 2013
Curious about what's next for Lumia?
Salute to Nokia, a company that truly innovates
Nokia Conversations, the official blog site from Nokia, just released the third picture of their own Lumia 1020 teasers, see below.
You may say, well, nothing special. how about zooming it in?
Still not impressed? Zoom in again?
Check how those details are depicted even when you zoom in by such a great ratio, and remember, no optical zoom is used at all! That’s the magic about Nokia’s 41 megapixels!
The event to unveil this awesome smartphone will kick off in about 1 hour and a half, are you ready? ?!
Thanks to WPCentral, another render of the ‘EOS’ surfaced. Apparently, EOS will be in bright yellow, white and black, which are iconic Lumia colours. Specs-wise, F/2.2, 41MP, and OIS are what we know so far, not sure what else is in Nokia’s sleeves though in terms of camera specs.
It’s not just about leaks for the phone itself, a Russian source posted an back cover for EOS, too!
This back cover fits perfectly with the phone and it contains a 1020mAh battery for extra power usage to the phone. The battery, according to this image, will be recharged via a MicroUSB port.
Less than three days to go, the biggest tech event of this summer will raise the bar for smartphone camera. Be there and be square!
Really haven’t updated the blog for a while, so, what’s been happening for Nokia?
Well, just one week to go to get the Nokia ‘EOS’ unveiled in New York, rumours and speculations regarding the phone are flying high in cybersphere. A recent leak indicates Lumia 1020 is the product name, which will be the first product to carry 4-digit name in the Lumia family. However, evleaks, the infamous leaking account on twitter, just tweeted that the name should actually be Nokia 909, following the name convention for Nokia’s pioneer in PureView category, the PureView 808. 1020 or 909, whichever names Nokia chooses to use actually doesn’t matter, what matters most is to get them hit the shelf as soon as possible.
Now, back to the topic for today, Optical Image Stablization. Nokia released a video vividly showing the components inside its current flagship, the Lumia 925 and highlighting how the light pass though those 6 layers of lenses when optical image stablization is on!
Check it out, and probably Samsung and HTC have already watched this video for dozens of times, you know what I mean, don’t you?
Yes, we’ve already seen a ton of leaks about Nokia EOS, the upcoming flagship WP8 device featuring 41Megapixel and optical stablisation (as what you can see on 808 PureView and Lumia 920 separately) in its camera module, thanks to ViziLeaks and other anominous sources. What you would expect is a Lumia 920 variant with a huge camera huge, as shown below:
The diameter for the protruding part is about 1/3 of the length of the phone, which is pretty conspicuous. The polycarbonate body on the EOS are in, at least, black, yellow and red, according to different sources of leaks. Some people may wonder, why Nokia keeps using polycarbonate rather than alluminum which can be found on the recent announced 925? Well, for those of you who love metal feel, Nokia has something to cater your taste, too. A recent leak on Weibo shows off the alluminum body variant of the EOS, and it’s indeed sexy, isnt it?
Found something different? Yes, apart from the metal chassis, the hole for camera module seems a bit smaller than that one the previously leaked polycarbonate EOS, this might indicate two things: 1), same camera module size but the alluminum version has a larger body (indicating a bigger screen); 2), same body size but the metal EOS packs with a smaller camera module.
So far there is no further leaks regarding this metal variant, and we are not sure whether this is just an engineering prototype at early stage or it is indeed in mass production (as you can notice in the background there are lots of such bodys lying around). Anyway, we do believe Nokia is using similar approach for EOS as to 92X series. As July 11th is approaching, we are looking forward to what’s really in Nokia’s sleeves.
Righto, guys! Finally Nokia decides to get itself involved in the swirl of rumours and leaks of Nokia EOS, which would harness the beasty camera found on PureView 808, by announcing the date for its next big event.
11th July in New York, we are going to witness the birth of Nokia EOS, a camera-oriented WP8 smartphone, which is supposed to combine the 41MegaPixel sensor (for lossless zoom) and optical stablisation into the next generation of PureView!
28 days to go, guys, what else do you expect apart from Nokia EOS?
Have you spotted something interesting from pictures above? Yes, this Verizon variant of Lumia 920, presumed to be called Lumia 928, sports a Xenon flash! Believe it or not, Lumia 928 will see the light on or around 8th, April according to Nokiapoweruser. Global readers won’t get too much excited by this US-only model, however, what delights us is that Xenon flash comes back since the Nokia PureView 808.
There are some recent rumours regarding Catwalk and EOS as well.
Speaking of the Catwalk, an upgrade of Lumia 920 with slimmer design and aluminum body, it will come to T-mobile in the US market as RM-893 and to global market as RM-892. Calwalk is purported to be unveiled on May 15th in London.
Codenamed as EOS, the next generation of PureView (presumably a combination of 41MegaPixels sensor and Optical Image Stablization system) will say hello to the world on May 15th as well, according to @Flapic on twitter.
Stay tuned for more info.
PS: today the well-known @evleaks released another rendering of Lumia 928, this time it’s in white, see below:
This above snapshot is taken from the official list for China Unicom 21M Handsets, the full snapshot can be viewed here. China Unicom, the second largest wireless carrier in China, has listed 52 different smartphone types from Apple, Samsung, Nokia, LG, HTC, SONY, and a bunch of Chinese handset makers, among which there are 7 nokia handsets included.
In the snapshot above there is a mysterious Nokia phone, which is set to be released in June 2013, list as No.37 and codenamed as ‘C?’. Can it be the long-rumoured Catwalk? Or even EOS? Well, it can be guaranteed for now that this upcoming phone is a high-end Lumia to follow Lumia 920. According to the remark, this unknown Nokia phone is listed in the ‘star product’ category, the same category containing iPhone, Galaxy S4 and Lumia 920, etc.
Wait and behold, more information regarding this mysterious ‘C?’ will be shared!
