First unofficial details about Nokia EOS surface
The Nokia EOS is a device we’ve been hearing for months now. The supposed Windows Phone-based successor to the best cameraphone on the market, the Nokia 808 PureView, the Nokia EOS has been a closely guarded secret. Until now that is as not one, but two sources have spoken and both agree on what the device will look like.

The Nokia EOS will look somewhat like a Nokia Lumia 920 but with a large sensor bulge out in the middle in a huge cover-protected camera opening on the back. It is not yet know whether it’d feature the same 41-megapixel camera as the 808 PureView, and it will come with a new Nokia Pro Camera app that allows manual focusing. The EOS is rumored to have the same 4.5-inch WXGA AMOLED display as the Lumia 925.

An insider who got to see the device in prototype form spoke for WMPowerUser and here is his verbatim description of the phone:

The device is made of polycarbonate, and is about as thick as the Nokia Lumia 920 in the middle, but is highly tapered at both ends, giving the impression of a much slimmer device.
The lens housing is round in shape and does not protrude much. The flash is Xenon, and the flash and lens are both smaller than the Nokia 808 Pureview. Next to the flash is a small red LED which may be a focus assist light.
The lens also has an automatic cover that opens when the camera app is started.
The number of megapixels were not marked on the prototype, with “XX megapixels” only being written on the lens housing.
There is a new camera app called “Nokia Pro Camera” with a completely new interface. There is also manual focus available through the app. The regular photo app is also available.
The screen size and resolution is same as 920, and appears to be AMOLED. The speaker holes are at the bottom as the handset.
The handset was much lighter than the Nokia Lumia 920.

The information has been confirmed by another insider, so this definitely seems like a truthful rumor, at least on paper. Overall, the Nokia EOS is portrayed as a hybrid between the recently announced Lumia 925, the Lumia 920 and the 808 PureView. Not a bad combination, is it?

Stop teasing and show us the damn device already! All we get this month from Nokia is a crappy improvement which is the Lumia 925.

I think it's a shame Nokia didn't get colorful with the 928 and 925.

r u sure bro, in hardware wise nokia did not improve much (only screen, camera and speaker). but u have to agree with body (light weight, and slim). we know it's a variety of NL920 so it's going to same.

one point is here that WP restrict Nokia to improve in hardware :(

So, You guys say WP restricts the hardware capabilities ; and do you know why??? Microsoft Windows Phone team has their reasons_ # FACT is to extend battery life and to optimize the handsets to achieve high efficiency(you don't need 600 HP to run a car) and of course _ to allow easy development of apps(WVGA_720p_WXGA) _ it was the critical time of WP and NOKIA and they had to do some things within limits. Just my opinion :) Now everything's became a lot better & WPhones are ready to step up to the next level!

Only by the end of summer. The OS has to be changed in order to accept the high pixel count.

The 925 is an improvement something we already know from previous Nokia models, the main benefit is being much lighter and a slightly improved camera. The number of WP devices available has to increase to add more visibility to the OS. As Samsung floods the market with similar devices, the same has to happen with Nokia. That's the way the marked works these days.

If they are delaying it for sale in holiday season, then they should atleast upgrade the screen to FullHD resolution, and processor should be atleast quadcore, because it will require more processing power than the other WP8 phones, due to it's high resolution camera......... I hope GDR3 update is ready before the launch of this phone.......

for me..
1080p+s800 cpu+2500mah+41mp (or atleast 20mp) and I'm in.
I know Windows phone does not require quad core or 1080p but what's the problem in implementing it....c'mon we want Nokia back

Microsoft is not fully pushing Windows phones. ..
they really need to speed up the development and add more features unique to the platform....

i still not get it that why Microsoft make fully features WP OS like windows xp, 7 and 8. Hurry up MS u need to put really quick common features in your WP, u know it's not hard.

The answer is simple, because Windows Phone 8 is a bridge. They are extending the bridge and will eventually make Windows Phone and Windows the same OS. Perhaps they may do the same with the Xbox as well.

wendygarett is a paid shill, working for the competition, and his/her sole purpose for being here is to write fundamentally negative and dishonest comments about Nokia and/or Microsoft products and services.

NOTE: This person's comments should be deleted due to countless past violations, and their account should be suspended indefinitely. PHONE ARENA, please stop allowing paid bashers working for other companies to interfere with the review and feedback process!

There are a number of improvements that needs to be done in Windows Phone OS for Nokia to fully show its potential as a superior phone maker.

Nokia has a lot to deliver bas is being stopped by some flaws in the OS. GDR2 will cover some spots but not all, we need to wait for unified windows experience.

I hope wp8 brings out 1080p support and ups the cpu to a snap Dragon 600 for the Christmas season this year. And I would like to see the eos be one of the first phones to do this bump in hardware.
