If we’re to believe the rumors, the time has nearly come for a 41-megapixel PureView Nokia Lumia Windows Phone handset. The so-called EOS has been teasing us for months, and recently we’ve heard some detailed hardware rumors and learned that Nokia may be gearing-up to launch the phone in about a month. Now, as we get into what sure feels like the home stretch, some new images have arrived that just might give us our first look at this smartphone in the flesh.
Sure enough, what we can see here does seem to match with the general descriptions we’ve heard of the phone – that is, a very Lumia-920-looking design for the body, albeit every so slightly thinner, along with a pronounced camera bulge. Going with a circular cut-out for the camera components might not really scream “Nokia design language,” but it works well enough here – we can also see evidence for the rumored xenon flash.
The presence of two small holes on the handset’s back may suggest that there’s no integral support for wireless charging, and the feature will only be available with an optional rear cover.
Now, we can’t say if this is truly how the EOS will arrive – for all we know, this could still be a prototype – but we’ll admit that whatever we’re seeing here does look pretty compelling, and could well be the real deal.
