We’re well aware that HTC and Nokia have been working on a number of new smartphones – Nokia’s likely to make the EOS/Lumia 1020 official in just a week, and we’ve seen evidence to support rumors of future HTC devices like the One Mini. Now, we’ve got a new leak to examine that brings a bunch of these phones together in once place, as well as reveals a few previously unknown models.
This supposedly comes from O2 in Germany, and you should immediately notice a few familiar names on it. In addition to the HTC One, we see confirmation for the One Mini, as well as the rumored One Max. The Desire 500 is new to us, but the name alone suggests it’s not going to be very interesting hardware.
The Sony and Huawei stuff is all old, but our interest is piqued by this Nokia section. Beyond the familiar Lumia models, we have two devices codenamed Eros and Mars. There’s quite a bit of speculation going around that Eros may be some sort of typo, intended to refer to the Nokia EOS, but we’re not so sure; after all, both Eros and Mars are gods from classical mythology. Sure, Eros is Greek and Mars Roman, but the connection may be worth considering. In any case, we haven’t the foggiest about their hardware details just yet, especially if Eros is distinct from the EOS.
