Leak saga goes on: Nokia EOS aka Lumia 1020 back plate image confirms 41-megapixel camera

Leak saga goes on: Nokia EOS aka Lumia 1020 back plate image confirms 41-megapixel camera
If there ever was an award for most leaked device, the Nokia EOS, aka Nokia Elvis, aka Nokia Lumia 1020, aka Nokia’s camera superphone, would definitely snatch it. We’ve seen it all from all sides, and the leaks just won’t stop days ahead of the official unveiling pegged for July 11th.

Infamous leaker @evleaks is at the center of the whole leak affair and just keeps on teasing. After releasing what looks like a press render of the front of the device, we now get to see the back and it’s just what we’ve seen before - a huge circular cutout for the camera and both a Xenon and LED flash.

This setup definitely seems interesting. If true, that would mean that Nokia would rely on the Xenon flash for well-lit images, and the LED flash light could fire up to reduce red eye effect in images.

The most important piece however is not the flash, it is the number 41 engraved on the back of the Nokia Lumia 1020. It’s an obvious indication that the phone features a 41-megapixel camera. That’s the same impressive number of megapixels we saw on the Nokia 808 PureView, and should translate into lossless zoom capabilities and simply outstanding images, beating all other smartphones.

Take a look at the handset right below.

Nokia EOS will be called Lumia 909, Nokia ditched the Lumia 1020 name! PA should know this, 909 resembles the Pureview 808!

The Microsoft windows 8 smartphones software is going to get some serious updates in the coming months that will add many features that Windows 8 smart phones now do not have. by the End of the year or the beginning of next year the Windows phone 8 blue up dates will be complete, so if anyone buys this smart phones in a little while it will have much better software then it has today and you wont have to buy a new Windows smart phone to get the updates.

Actually I believe Microsoft and Nokia have both said all WP8 handsets will get the GDR3 update, which is said to be the one for more cores and higher resolution. The major update after that might just be for the quad-and-up, but it is too early to speculate. If the EOS/Elvis/909/1020/??? is as good as it is leaked to be, I won't want another phone until late 2014 or 2015 at the earliest. Still using my Lumia 900 with no problems despite the availability and desirability of the dual-cores.

Only SoC that is capable to handle the 41MP is Snapdragon 800 which is not yet supported by windows phone. Does this means Microsoft will use the nokia event to release the Windows Phone 8.1? i guess none of rumours on GRD2 update mention about the SoC support

Possibly the focusing light; I believe the 928's setup is identical for camera flashes

go read zoom review. You may like it, pathetic troll. If it works, why whining? because you can't show off its specs on paper? It's butetry smooth, has enough power to make this monstrous 41 mpx camera works so what's the problem?????

The platform can't really use that yet, and the only time you would realize such hardware is MAYBE with the top-end new-release 3D games. Everything else runs great. It's the metaphorical Ferrari in Manhattan/London/rush hour LA: lots of power and speed, but nothing and nowhere to use it on. Reeks of pretentiousness, and by the time something is available to use that power, there's a newer model you want instead.
