Nokia EOS/Lumia 1020 might actually be called the Nokia 909

Nokia EOS/Lumia 1020 might actually be called the Nokia 909
On the heels of leaked renders surfacing over the past few hours, there is some conflicting information as what the new Nokia will be called, so we do not know how definitive this is. However, given how reliable the track record has been with @evleaks, it is certainly worth sharing the news.

If true, it is certainly a moniker that pays homage to the Nokia 808 PureView, a game changing device that defined a whole new standard for smartphone cameras. Indeed, its monster 41MP sensor along with lossless zoom and fully manual adjustments made for a very special device.

Despite that amazing camera and overall excellent performance, its Symbian OS underpinnings along with the transitions Nokia was contending with at the time did not foster an environment for the 808 PureView to see widespread popularity. It does have a cult following though, with new and well-cared-for used devices readily available for sale. 

With the pending announcement of the device codenamed “Elvis,” just around the corner, Nokia is bringing the next generation of its camera technology to bear, and it does seem right to maintain some type of common thread for what will be a very uncommon device.

Of course, it could also be argued that a progressive numbering scheme is less confusing, but we would point out that the numbering scheme has already been fractured with the introduction of the Lumia 928 and Lumia 925, not to mention the Lumia 820/810/822 and the Lumia 520/521.

What do you think? Does affixing a “909” to this new super-camera-smartphone make sense? Is it worthy of such a designation (we are sure the Symbian purists may have thoughts)?

I'm guessing this phone will be model #1010. It makes sense. XX is equal to 1010; therefore, all the other guesses are less valid.

Congrats to Nokia for preparing to release a smartphone that offers something truly unique and powerful, especially for those who value photgraphy and image quality :o)

I like 909 better than 1020, but would prefer 941 for general consumers' sakes. They don't expect numbers to go down. 928 should have been 922, for example. The homage to a somewhat unknown phone (except tech, camera, and cell enthusiasts like us) may not be the best course of action. That said,they could call it the Big Super Camera Awesome Lumia Box 999 and I wouldn't care, just release it already!

Yes i do, i'm addicted to Nature & Siberian Husky's so whenever i see something like that i want to take great picture's .. I hope when you buy the phone that you can see the + points of the OS, i know you hate "prison" OS'es, but give it a shot and think like the average consumer ... I love Android, but i really really love Windows Phone... Greetzz.

This name would likely just confuse consumers. You don't want people to think that you're just releasing a budget phone due to the smaller numbering in comparison with the Lumia series

All the Lumia 900s are the flagships, 800s are high-mid, 700 mid, 600 entry-level, 500 budget.

AS symbian powered 41MP cam is 808. WP powered 41MP cam may be 909 ..signify an update ... This makes sense :)

It will be same as 808! So what difference will that make? But this time it won't look ugly, hideous, thick, big, like the 808PV. ®
