Is it the metallic Nokia EOS that is launching soon?
A picture published on Saturday shows what would appear to be a number of metallic chassis like the ones we showed you just the other day. That could only lead to the conclusion that the aluminum chassis are being mass produced. Of course, this would probably mean that the polycarbonate version of the Nokia EOS is coming at a later date.
The Nokia EOS is expected to be equipped with a 4.5 inch OLED screen with resolution of 768 x 1280, which works out to a 332ppi pixel density. 32GB of native storage is on board. But the big focus is on the camera sensor which will be 41MP like the one on the Nokia 808 PureView. The phone is expected to be unveiled July 11th at a Nokia event in New York. At that time, we will know for sure what Nokia's intentions are for the metallic chassis as opposed to the polycarbonate model. Of course, that doesn't preclude some sort of leak from coming before then that will answer our questions.
Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

Lookin at that picture... Whoever is holding it either has reeeeaaaaaalllly small hands or that phone is bigger than 4.5". I held my Lumia 920 the same way and I don't have very big hands, and I didn't have to stretch my fingers around it like that.

Don't forget that the camera adds 10 pounds...

Lol! you're bad!
All jokes aside this thing is sexy, and if it has some weight to it that's a plus for me. Light and thin is okay, but I like to know I'm holding a phone with substance.

Your speculation would seem to concur with what WMpoweruser and nokia power user are saying, the Aluminium EOS is actually a 5.3 inch lumia phablet. I believe Nokia also have lined up another 6 inch flagship with the 41mp sensor and updated WP8 GDR3 update to support 1080p screens and Quadcore processors. All the dimensions point to this device being a lot bigger than the Polycarbonate version we saw side by side with the standard Lumia 920 looking the same size.

I have a feeling this isn't the EOS. The camera hole here is smaller than in the EOS. It could be the cheaper version of the 920 that recent rumors say will be out in September-October along with Nokia's first phablet.

may be...as Nokia realised they went in a good direction making lighter version of 920 in the form of 925
...and the cheaper version of 920 is going to be much lighter

yeah and some PA users says that this device is a brick.. come on back in 2010 everybody calls the iPhone 4 that it's the thinnest smartphone and it was 9.3 mm.. this device is going to be about the same thickness...

i think this is one of the lumia phablets not the EOS....making the same pose with my 920...the phone above seems alot bigger...also the spacing between the camera key and the end of the phone is alot bigger than that of the 920 (the same goes for the spacing between the volume rockers and the end of the phone)

You're right, those side buttons look tiny compared to the rest of the phone, so this is probably the September-October phablet.

Just a heads up: your Source field says one thing and points to another :)

This is NOT the Lumia EOS, it's way too thin to pack the 41MP sensor with the fitting larger lens. So what it is? Either the next regular Lumia model featuring a larger sensor, an "EOS Mini" with a more compact 21MP camera system. This is the PureView 808, and due to the lens and everything else, I can't see the big EOS lens packed in a 9mm case.

It can also be a Lumia Phablet, look at the size of that thing. If my large palm is the reference, to hold it like that, it has to me something Galaxy Note size.

This metal body is bigger than the first leaked pics of EOS on the 06/06/13...also the camera hump on the back is smaller in diameter...Hoping this would be a bigger version of the EOS (could be the international version be be announced later) with a 5 inch screen and GDR3 updat with full 1080 display..i just hope it is...NOKIA u jst doing great!!!

Looking at my buttons on the 920 these are spaces different. Not sure but thought that the EOS was pretty close if not the same
