Nokia’s 41-megapixel Lumia phone shell seen in leaked photos


It was less than a month ago that we reported about the rumored Nokia Lumia EOS (Electro-Optical System) smartphone, a device that could be a homerun for the comeback manufacturer because of its rumored 41-megapixel camera. Since we’re want to stay on top of rumors, we thought we’d share the latest leak to support the idea of the EOS, though Nokia refuses to officially ‘fess up. Earlier today, WMPoweruser published photos that surfaced in China, which purported reveal the shell of a red EOS. (It’s always nice to have some bold color options to select from.)

Aside from the mega camera, the EOS is likely to be very similar to other Lumia models in most aspects. We previously reported that the phone would rock a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen with a 1280 x 768 pixel display, which is de rigueur with many Windows phones. Powering the device will be an unspecified quad-core processor, and it’ll hold as much a 32GB storage, though we’re not sure whether there will be a microSD slot or not.

Since many of the leaked Nokia photos in the recent past have come to fruition, there’s a good chance we’ll be hearing about an official launch for this one sometime in the future. When exactly, we’re not too sure, though we have heard whispers of a July release.

Until then, we’ll keep waiting for more details to come from those seemingly loose-lipped Nokia employees.
