Rumor: Nokia EOS to be officially named Lumia 1020

Nokia EOS Camera LeakAccording to the latest rumor, Nokia will name the phone we currently know as the EOS, the Lumia 1020. This comes from the serial phone leaker @evleaks on Twitter, and hasn’t been confirmed by Nokia, however thanks to many leaks regarding the EOS, it’s just about the only detail we don’t know.

The Lumia 1020 name is somewhat familiar, as just before the beginning of the year, a leak talked about three possible smartphone releases coming from Nokia during 2013 – the Lumia 520, the Lumia 720, and the Lumia 1000. Both the 520 and 720 subsequently arrived during Mobile World Congress, leaving the Lumia 1000 as a no-show. Nokia has been using the number 20 in its model numbers this year, but has recently started to advance beyond this, with hardware such as the Lumia 925. While the Lumia 1000 name trips off the tongue rather nicely, Lumia 1020 isn’t bad either, particularly when pronounced Lumia ten-twenty.

We’ve been treated to a considerable amount of information regarding Nokia’s next smartphone release, which will be announced at an event confirmed for July 11. At first, it told us the zoom feature would be reinvented, and has subsequently said there are 41 million reasons to tune into the live streamed event on the day. Of course, Nokia’s PureView camera just happens to have 41 megapixels, so we can be fairly sure the new Lumia phone will finally bring PureView tech to Windows Phone.

Otherwise, we’re not expecting too many surprises from the phone. Leaked pictures have shown a body shell which is very similar to the Lumia 920, and the specification is likely to be the same as the rest of the Lumia 92x range, meaning a 4.5-inch screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, and a dual-core processor. While not up there with the Galaxy S4, it does beat the latest top-end camera phone, the Galaxy S4 Zoom, which takes on the S4 Mini’s lesser spec.

Nokia’s special event will take place in New York on July 11, and we’ll bring you everything you need to know about the EOS/Lumia 1020 on the day.

Nokia 9 PureView vs. iPhone XR: Can HMD Global take on Apple?
Nokia 9 hands-on review

The Nokia 9 PureView was revealed at MWC 2019 -- and it's everything we dreamed it would be. With a sleek glass design and a notchless P-OLED display, the Nokia 9 PureView would have stood out even without the addition of five (yes, five) camera lenses arranged neatly in the rear glass.

At an expected $700 price, however, it has some immediate and very powerful opposition to face -- the iPhone XR. This lower-priced iPhone stole our hearts last year, and it's one of the Nokia 9's main competitors. Which phone wins when these two go head-to-head? We found out.

Nokia 9 PureView vs. Galaxy S10e: Can Nokia shut down Samsung?
Nokia 9

Flagship phones are increasing in price, but that doesn't mean you can't find a phone with flagship specs for less than $800. Samsung has introduced a new "affordable" tier in its flagship S10-range, and the newly minted Galaxy S10e offers flagship specs and features for $750. But Samsung's not alone here. Mobile veteran Nokia has finally released the long-awaited Nokia 9 PureView, and the photography-focused phone comes with an incredible penta-lens camera sure to attract shutterbugs. (We should know. Thanks to a week of exclusive access, we took the first photos with the camera.)

But which is better? When your choice comes down to a $700 phone and a $750 phone, are there that many differences? We took a look at both to find out.

Exclusive: We take the first shots with the Nokia PureView 9’s 5-camera system
exclusive look at first photos from the nokia 9 pureview review feat

The Nokia 9 PureView's five-camera array has everyone intrigued. It was announced at Mobile World Congress 2019 -- a show where we were able to hold a phenomenally-engineered foldable phone -- and it still managed to turn heads with its multi-camera system. But the cameras aren't just laid out in a unique way. They function differently from other phones with multiple cameras, and its capabilities are exciting for the world of photography.

What's it like? I spent a week with the Nokia 9 PureView, strolling around Barcelona to test the camera in the real world. Here's what happened.
How it works
I've explained how the five-camera system -- powered by technology from Light -- works before, but here's a recap. Unlike most smartphones with multiple cameras, each camera on the back of the Nokia 9 snaps a photo at the same time you tap the shutter button (sometimes more, depending on the conditions you're in).
