Nokia EOS leaked again, this time in all its PureView camera-equipped glory

Nokia EOS Front LeakNokia has made no secret of the fact it has another smartphone ready to release this year, even going so far as to mention it at the Lumia 925’s launch event. It’s becoming increasingly likely the phone in question is the Nokia EOS, a device which has been rumored for some time, but has been extensively leaked over the past few days.

The EOS, which is a codename, is expected to bring PureView camera technology to Nokia’s Windows Phone line-up – and properly this time, with a full-on 40-megapixel camera, rather than the 8.7-megapixel fitted to the Lumia 920, 925, and 928. Following on from the images of an incomplete shell already leaked, we’ve now been treated to pictures showing the phone from every conceivable angle, plus a video showing the camera’s shutter action.

Nokia EOS Side View LeakThe pictures come from multiple sources too, with getting some great side view shots, and a new Twitter account named @ViziLeaks posting some high quality overviews of the device. As you can see from the side-on pictures, the EOS has a very pronounced hump housing the camera lens and what looks like a Xenon flash. No, it’s not quite as huge as the 808 PureView’s, but as Nokia has had at least a year and a half to miniaturize the technology, this is to be expected.

Although the megapixel count is cunningly disguised with a pair of X’s, the camera cover is stamped with PureView branding, and confirms the lens has been built by Carl Zeiss. As with Nokia’s other Lumia 92x phones, we’re expecting a 4.5-inch, 1280 x 768 resolution AMOLED screen, with a dual-core processor and up to 32GB in storage memory. The body shell seen in the pictures looks to be polycarbonate, rather than the aluminum/polycarbonate mix used for the Lumia 925.

Finally, you can check out the video below, which shows the phone is a working model, with the shutter to the camera opening and closing. So when will we see the EOS launched, and what will it be called? July is being talked about, but this is far from being official, and it has been linked in the past with a production name of the Lumia 1000.

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).
