Nokia teases 41MP EOS reveal in NYC on July 11th -- We’ll be there!

As E3 winds down, an exciting week is still upon us. Nokia just sent out press invites, including one to your favorite Windows Phone site (that’d be this one, folks) for July 11th at 11am.

The focus of the event (yes, we intended that pun):  If we had to bet our life on it, it would be Nokia’s EOS for AT&T, which is expected to punch with a 41MP camera and the latest iteration of the Windows Phone 8 OS.

Nokia EOS

The theme of the event is “Zoom. Reinvented.”, which hints at the EOS's ability to zoom-by-cropping due to  the plethora of megapixels in the image—this is diametrically opposed to the idea of a physical zoom, where one has a long lens with moving parts akin to where Samsung is going with their upcoming Galaxy S4 Zoom phone.

The thing is, moving delicate parts are a bad idea on mobile devices—they add size and are prone to damage. We think Nokia has gone down the right route, but obviously more will be revealed in less than 30 days.

Other expected features of the EOS aka 'Elvis' on AT&T will be:

  • 41 MP camera with Xenon flash
  • Nokia Pro Camera
  • 32GB of internal storage
  • OLED screen at 768 x 1280
  • WP8 v 8.0.10322.71
  • FM Radio
  • Flip to silence
  • Polycarbonate body
  • Takes 35 MP picture and a 5 MP at the same time. The 5 MP version is meant for quickly sharing on social networks.
  • Comes in yellow
  • No SD card
  • No visible OS changes

With the large amount of photo leaks of the device, all that remains to be understood are the finer details. We can’t wait.

Kinda wish there was something else great about it other than a new camera, I think the 920 is no slouch and my DSLR is fine for super quality pics...

Not being a hipster here but..

N9 -> drool
L800 -> yes!
L920 -> dream come true

EOS -> 920S

They need to reinvent another design for this. Its a big feature everyone was waiting for. Why did they just slap it on the 920.

All these annoucements are great but I really wish they would just hurry up and release stuff already!  Like the 925 on T-Mobile and the software updates.  Hoping to see a date for those soon!!!

Do you guys think Nokia will put this true Pureview camera into future flagships? I don't want to upgrade so soon, my 920 is still young :p I want to upgrade to something better. Specifically, I want this EOS phone but with a 5" 1080p screen and a huge battery.

I suggest waiting. The holiday season is too lucrative to be left out of the conversation and its the anniversary of the 920.

"Specifically, I want this EOS phone but with a 5" 1080p screen and a huge battery."
Amen brother, preach it! :) And considering the size of the photos it'll be taking as well as the size of the phone (already), it should have an SD card slot too. Or maybe they'll surprise us and put 128GB on-board and put the smack on Apple and Goosung. ;)

Finally, a proper inntroduction of the Phase 1 system to the American market... its been 17 months since they launched it in Barcelona.. its been way too long.

Maybe they can make a phone that doesn't practically jump out of my hands. My flash stopped working after my most recent drop :(

 Í'm wondering why microsoft is considering bringing out the eos only now. Is it the natural state of incremental changes that lead to this point. Or is this going to be a teaser device for something else bigger to come in 2014?

I think so too, especialy since Nokia in an interview late last year mentioned a 20MP PureView phone. The real 41MP is probably another 6-9 month out or will be released once WP8.1 is out which brings support for higher res displays and 4 core SoC. Hopefully I will be proofed wrong on July 11th.

If it has the snapdragon 1.5ghz + 1GB de RAM it is going to be a massive fail, those specs are so early2012ish

 I don't think they should name it Nokia Lumia 9xx, instead they should in my opinion create a new Lumia gategory. Nokia Lumia EOS would sound really nice actually. 

I was so excited for the eos that I had a hump. After seeing the eos's hump, my humps gone! I hope the leak is not the actual design.

64GB surely? Come on Nokia, pull your fingers out of your arses... My lowly 620 has more storage (32GB SD card). This is supposed to be a top end device with 35MP photos, 1080P HD video recording and high end gaming etc... How many 35MP photos will fit on 32GB lol. At least include the option for an SD card slot, jeeze!

I want this in Canada as well, and hopefully it's a Penta-band device so I can run it on Wind Mobile, otherwise I am going for the Lumia 925

I would wet myself if Nokia actually purposely "leaked" those EOS photos to mislead us, then announce a completely better looking and more capable device...

I've been waiting patiently for the EOS, but just oblitorated the screen on my Titan. Looks like I need to replace the glass in the meantime.

Dude, that sucks...sorry to hear that. Curious to hear how much a glass replacement is for a Titan (or if you decide to get a cheap replacement until the EOS is released). I'm also looking forward to getting the EOS ASAP but am going to miss the bigger screen on the Titan :(
