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
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.
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:
