Nokia Lumia EOS, code named Elvis, in testing for AT&T?
Just last week, there was some speculation that the Nokia Lumia EOS would be making that long rumored trip to the U.S. sometime in July. On Friday, a published report revealed some more information about the Windows Phone version of the Nokia 808 PureView. First, we should mention that it appears to be heading to AT&T which doesn't seem too much of a surprise considering that the carrier has had first crack at new models from the Finnish manufacturer. Remember, the Nokia Lumia 900 and Nokia Lumia 920 were both launched as AT&T exclusives.

Internally, the phone is being called Elvis. No, it won't be launched with that name but is just referred to as Elvis inside AT&T (And perhaps when it has left the building). According to a source with knowledge of the phone, it will feature that 41MP rear facing camera with Xenon flash, and Nokia Pro Camera. The latter gives you more fine-tuning control over the camera. The device will have 32GB of native storage mostly because there is no microSD slot on the phone.

The Nokia Lumia EOS will be equipped with an OLED screen with resolution of 768 x 1280. Windows Phone 8 version 8.0.10322.71 will be pre-installed. Like many of the Nokia Lumia models after receiving the upcoming GDR2 update, the EOS will offer an FM Radio for your listening pleasure. And if you're tired of hearing your phone ring, flip it over on a desk and it will mute the ringer.

The Polycarbonate body on the Nokia Lumia EOS will come in yellow and will be 1mm thinner than the Nokia Lumia 920, although it will have a big camera hump. According to the source, users will be able to shoot a 35MP shot and a 5MP one at the same time. One you get to keep and the other photo is yours to share. You won't notice any changes in the OS.

The phone has tapered ends which gives the appearance of a slim model and a July launch is very much possible.

Nokia makes great smartphones, and they offer excellent value and durability. The new EOS model will likely not dissappoint...

As for the competition:

Samsung products will eventually be prohibited from using all versions of Microsoft OS, including WP, Win XP, Win Vista, Win 7/8, Win Server, etc.

Nokia, Asus, Lenovo, HP, Dell, Acer, and others will take their place...

I agree, i'm a Nokia/Samsung fan but a troll is just full of jealous rage and hatred with underdog mentality. Don't be copy and pasting the same old BS on two separate articles.

Which fanboy am i then? Samsung/Nokia/HTC/Sony/BB/Apple/LG or an IOS/Imac/Android/windown phone 8/PC/BB fanboy? Because unlike some, i buy whatever i choose when i choose regardless of platform, and yes, i use all of what ive mentioned. Whoyton1 aint no sammy fanboy, hes been quite supportive of nokia in his recent comments so rather than assuming of what we like, try not to be blinded by hatred just because we are pointing out a troll when we see one.

Too funny...so you are a fan of all of those huh? You both litter any WP8 topic with your nonsense. I didn't say anything about SS or either of you liking SS so again a failure to comprehend what was said.. I said you were a blind fanboy as well as whoyton1 and I stand by that

Ha ha, so because you stand by that I am a blind fanboy? Oh please, like what exactly is one supposed to be a blind fanboy of then and so you know, I read every single word of your sentence. It's like talking to a wall, where have I bashed Windows Phone 8 in my latest tirade, yeah I may have done so several months and i'm not ashamed to admit that, but that was a while ago before i convinced myself to try out a Lumia 920. Just the other day I get thumbed down and accused of being a wp8 fanboy on a Note 3 rumour article, I just laugh off from what people may assume about me or my preferences, the end of the day I'm here to enjoy whatever comes to market but to give a rational and grown up opinion, if I don't like something I can say it but your right, I'm a fanboy....of mobile tech. Chill dude, I liked you more when you had a VW avatar :D

i was really hoping this phone would come out with the upgraded windows phone OS that allows 1080p display. would make the pictures you take with the 41mp sensor look even better when viewing on the phone.

Also I hope they increase the screen size to 4.7"-5", but keep the phone the same size or smaller. This would be far better for viewing your 41 mp photos.
Also if your taking 41 mp photos its gonna take a lot of size, so a microSD card slot would be good too.

I'm really happy this phone is coming out sooner than later and I'm certain this camera will be amazing. I'm not sure why this wouldn't have a sd card but will have to wait before I say I'm disappointed.
It's nice to see that there wasn't a jab in this article towards Nokia or WP8 that seem to grace every article written by the bloggers of this site for once.

I have done two rounds with WP7 and WP8, and always leave because there hasn't been a great enough differentiator to make up for WP's few flaws. This phone could deliver that.

32GB should probably be the standard now, but with this shooting a 41MP camera I'd still like to have seen an SD card slot included.

Much like Google et al is forgoing SD cards in favor of cloud storage alternatives, I'm guessing that Nokia is doing the same in conjunction with Microsoft wanting users to give SkyDrive a chance.
So glad I'm grandfathered in on Verizon's unlimited data, otherwise... whew! Make sure there's a WiFi portal handily nearby.
Nothing against Nokia/MS or any of the other mobile companies out there for this though, it's a solution like any other: all have their pros and cons. Only ones that suck the big one here are the damn greedy carriers nickle and diming our bills.

Please for the Pete, someone include SD cards, lower data plans, or bring back more unlimited options!!! ( Preferrably all three. )

its msft and carriers mutual greediness, msft wants people to use cloud storage( which frankly to me is nt a gud idea), as for nokia there entry level $40-$50 phones easily accomodate micro sd upto 32 gb..nt blaming nokia but they really need to blend windows to their own comfort. An image in creative mode in 808 is anywhere frm and between 2mb to 3 mb and in raw its nearly 14-15 mb. As for the videos ,a hd video of 1080p of 10 minutes will easily eat up nearly 500 mb. So either a micro sd card is really needed or usb otg support..

32GB.... come on Nokia. You can include a microSD slot seamlessly into the 720 body, but you can't put one in a high end model? Really? Tell me you'll have a 64GB model.
