International EOS possibly revealed as Nokia RM-875

A few days back, we checked out the FCC paperwork for Nokia’s model RM-877, and between the handset’s dimensions and the mention of a “camera grip” accessory, it sure looked like we had a strong contender for the EOS. That time, the band coverage seemed to suggest we were looking at a phone for AT&T, which was already rumored to be getting an EOS exclusive. Today we have another Nokia smartphone getting its FCC clearance, and this time it just might be the international version of the EOS.

Instead of the RM-877, this model’s the RM-875. With the same measurements and that camera grip showing up again, it’s pretty clear this is the same basic hardware. As shouldn’t be too surprising, the radio support changes, and this time the band lineup has a decidedly un-American ring to it: LTE bands 3, 7, and 20 practically scream “European carrier.”

So, once July 11 rolls around in a few weeks, rest easy knowing that any potential AT&T deal isn’t going to stop Nokia from making sure that this beast of a Windows Phone handset is available to its fans from all across the globe – not that we were really ever doubting that, but it’s still nice to see some proof.
