Is the RM-877 the Nokia EOS?

Nokia RM-877 receives FCC stamp of approval: Could this be the 41MP EOS for AT&T?

The FCC recently approved the Nokia RM-877 that is compatible with AT&T's LTE bands, pentaband HSPA+/WCDMA and quad-band GSM/Edge. The FCC documents also not the device has NFC, Bluetooth and dual-band Wi-Fi.

Beyond that, there's not much more to go on but there is a strong possibility that this is the EOS Windows Phone aka 'Elvis' for AT&T. Nokia has requested all the juicy documents that have device photos, schematics, the user manual and device specifications to remain private.  So for now, it's pure speculation that the RM-877 and the EOS are one in the same.

Nokia RM-877 schematic

There is one schematic was included in the test reports that has the dimensions of the RM-877 being 5.13 inches tall and 2.81" wide. While thickness was not documented (which might have been a dead give away), the height and width is just a smidgen wider than the Lumia 920 which, if the leaked images hold true, is along the lines of what we are expecting the size of the EOS to be.  

Could the RM-877 be Nokia's EOS Windows Phone? While there's no mention of a 41MP camera, there is mention in the FCC's public documents of a camera grip. Could a 41MP shooter warrant a camera grip accessory?

While this could go either way.  There's just not enough meat on the bone to say for certain this is the EOS Windows Phone.  But then again, there's nothing for certain to say it isn't the EOS.  The good news is that we shouldn't have long to wait for the July 11th event that should shed a lot of light on things.

oh man.....  -_______-

EDIT: Since I haven't heard Selena Gomez sing yet...I listened to the entire song.  My ears didn't bleed like they did for Rebecca Black.  Maybe there won't be any delayed side effects...

Haha Rebecca Black is pretty bad. But, one of the teen moms from that MTV show (Teen Mom) did a song, it's absolutely terrible.

Haha,its your money,not nokias!!
Mine goes too to Nokia,but I'd like to be 8,5" inch or less thin.. That's my problem only!!

It will, which makes me wonder if this is a new model number for the TMO 925, since the specs they list for the three existing handsets don't quite match TMO's radio bands.

Looks like pentaband HSPA+ (refarmed areas already get ATT "4G") and quadband GSM. Looms to me like it won't be any different than the 920. I hope im wrong though.

If it's the EOS. I'll take two please. HTC surround is on its way out. Should not have paid $35 to unlock it months ago. It might not last.

The RM numbers are code and don't actually correlate with the lumia model numbers. I believe I did read somewhere that a new 8xx series phone is on the way though.

I have a Nokia...and I have loved the design of their phones thus far, but I wouldn't spend a dime on this phone. That big bulge of a circle just looks really own personal opinion.

I lost my bulge because of it. Reminds me of Beauty and the Beast. ATT gets the Beast while Verizon will get the beauty (Phablet aluminum version). Sucks to think about it.

The camera on my Galaxy Nexus absolutely sucks. If this is the EOS, I'd gladly consider it, because I'm tired of my photos looking like trash (most of them, anyway). I can only imagine the photos a 41 MP camera would take =)

What was your purpose of getting the nexus in the first place. For camera or for Android or because it was cheap? Another thing, did you do research before purchasing your product?

I got it because it was Android and cheap. I was a little tight on money, around November of last year. I had to get something fast, because I just switched from T-Mobile to Verizon. I read reviews about the camera, and I thought the reviewers were just being picky. Turns out, they weren't "just being picky" lol.

Those pictures are amazing!!! This may replace my GNex; or it may be my second phone =)
I really like Android, but I'm open to something new and different.
Off Topic: How awesome would it be, for Nokia to become as big as Samsung? I think it would be cool, to see Nokia topple Blackberry and Apple. 

Boner !! Come on man Apply_Logic ( apply some logic here :P )
You've got a condition dude .. Thats not a hole but a bulge there :D.

My best guess so far is 1:1 port from the 808, whcih requires a companion chip inside the camera module which helps with the processing load.

In fact, I am not sure if even the snap 800 could handle the processing load required for oversampling during video recording. Yes, it does support the megapixel count, but there is more than that to it..

I was thinking the same thing.  If anything it might come with an upgraded Snapdragon S4 Plus or Pro dual core.  And use the Broadcom for heavy lifting still.

Yup.. good job to whoever wrote the drivers for that broadcom chip to run on NT.. I know it wasn't easy to do for Symbian either..

Does anyone know the significance in the designations for 9xx devices? Why 920 for at&T, 928 for Verizon, and 925 for T-Mobile?? Is there some kind of relation? No obvious answers please.

I don't know how I can put it any simpler.. I guess im saying how do they come up with the specific names for each carriers device.. Names are designations.. I think..

They're just model numbers like any other phone. The 9xx series is the highest end, followed by the 8xx series and so on. 920 is the model after the 900, and any number ending in a number other than zero is a variation of the same model AFAIK. So 925 and 928 are variations of the 920. The EOS probably won't be in the 92x series. Is that what you were asking?

.. we will have to wait and see, but if this is a proper camera phone, Nokia would want to put a 16:9 aspect ratio screen on it, which would be welcomed.

But going from those dimensions, its pretty much the same height but wider.. so, I dunno

Am I'm the only one that thinks this is going to be a 20 megapixel camera???  XX is 20 in roman numeral, right?

YES!  lol

Where have you been?  Go back to the other 5 million EOS articles and read through the comments.  This has already been mentioned so many times.

But since I am nice...

Nokia uses XX as placeholders (NOT ROMAN NUMERALS) on their prototypes to hide the actual number of MP from competitors...they did this with the 808 and N8 and are doing the same with the EOS. 

no problem dude! xD

Actually TBH, I was pretty nice because technically this has been mentioned a lot and like I've said, people have replied some with pretty abusive the past 5+ articles.

You think you where pretty nice but actually you where condescending.  Anyway, next time if you want to be nice leave out the low blows.  BTW, not every has the time to read every article posted on the interwebs.

I don't think he was being all that condescending, maybe a touch =D
There have actually been leaks of the XX replaced with 41. So ya, this is the real deal, not 20.

How is it possible that this phone is getting such a fast development to production cycle, compared to say the lumia 920 or is just the way I perceive things, supported by a crazy amount of media coverage?

This phone will be hyping everyone up before tmobile even hints at preorders for the 925. Im so tired of them being so freaking slow.
