Aluminum Nokia EOS chassis leaks out, 41 MP PureView sensor stamped in

An engineering prototype of the Nokia EOS has leaked, and this one is crafted out of aluminum, instead of the allegedly polycarbonate body we've seen leaked before. We heard about an aluminum-clad EOS way back in January, when it was reported that PureView Phase 1 in the Nokia 808 PureView, which brought along lossless zoom and pixel oversampling, and PureView Phase 2, which inserted optical image stabilization in a smartphone for the first time, will be kept separate this year.

Still, companies often make numerous prototypes of their flagship devices, and with the first true cameraphone bearing a modern mobile OS, we are sure Nokia has considered various chassis options to make it stand out further. Which one will land in July is anyone's guess. Alternatively, it might be the shell for the rumored next iteration of the EOS, hopefully merging PureView Phase 1 and 2 into a 41 MP sensor with OIS tech.

The other intriguing part of the leak is that we are seeing "41 MP" and "PureView" stamped on the aluminum mold, further proving that we are about to see a beast of a cameraphone, so we can't wait to stage a fight with the Galaxy S4 Zoom and the upcoming Sony Honami imaging specialist.

Uh, 11+11+7+13 = 42. Sometimes there's no hidden message.

+100 to you. I love that everyone thumbed it up without even bothering to check the math. People will believe anything they hear.

And then, the plate says only Zeiss instead of Carl Zeiss.

I think its Carl Zeiss. I don't think they will degrade their camera. May be they have written in short.

Perhaps there is a hidden message... 42 is the Ultimate Answer, to life, the universe, and everything.

Camera wise it will but, Nokia and WP still have a long way to go in other important categories before their beating "the hell out of" Android.

I don't think Nokia will use a number bigger than 1000. They'd change their naming scheme before it gets to that. This one can be 930, 940 or even 950.

phone arena just couldn't resist adding that crap at the end. The 808 absolutely destroyed the galaxy camera in tests conducted by gsm arena: This will do the same.
