Looks like Nokia is finally letting the cat out of the bag, if only slightly, on their latest Conversations post from their official blog.
The post, entitled “41 million reasons to zoom in to Nokia Conversations on July 11th”, simply recapitulates the media invite news we reported on last week—namely that Nokia will be holding a press conference in NYC to announce new hardware.
At the time, we heavily speculated that this would of course be the much-anticipated and heavily leaked ‘EOS’ (or ‘Elvis’ if on AT&T). The phone is expected to continue where the Symbian-based 808 PureView left off by bringing a 41MP camera sensor to essentially a Lumia 920 body.
To be clear, those 41 mega-pixels are used to oversample an image, resulting in 5-8MP photos in real usage. But those pics are of such high clarity that “crop to zoom” can be done at a whole new level, negating the need for mechanical zoom lens (the route that Samsung has chosen with their new ‘Zoom’ Galaxy S4).
The actual Nokia post simply mentions that you can watch the live stream of the press event on their site and to join in on the conversation, but to our knowledge, the EOS/Elvis will feature the following specifications:
- 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
Of course, Windows Phone Central will be live in New York City to also live blog the event and get the first hands-on with the new device (or devices), so you’ll want to make sure you tune into both pages that day.
More as it comes in! (Also, anyone notice the focus on yellow? We've heard that the AT&T version comes in at least this color, plus white and black.)
