Nokia is planning to reinvent the ZOOM at its next big event

And just like that folks, the good people over at Nokia penned a date for its next big event – one where they intend to reinvent the ZOOM. We wonder, what else might they show or announce? Could it be none other than the next Windows Phone with an even more spectacular PureView camera? One that will potentially feature a mind-bending 41-megapixels? Maybe this long rumored Nokia EOS smartphone?

Well, all of the questions will be answered of course at Nokia’s upcoming event in New York City, which is dated for July 11th. Looking at the accompanying photo, we can see how the tiny dot/period at the end of ZOOM has been magnified tremendously to show off more of its hidden details – so it kind of points to the inevitable reality of how a camera can capture so much in its shots.

Indeed, Samsung managed to raise some brows in the last few days with the recent announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom with its sweet 16-megapixel camera with a 10x zoom range, but there’s something about Nokia’s offering that tantalizes our imagination more. In any event, the wait won’t be long now before we know what the talk is all about. Naturally, we’ll be there to cover all the festivities, so make sure to circle down the date!

Now, Samsung, your turn to watch how it's done - without making your device ending up like a brick

A slimmer brick than S4 zoom though. S4 Zoom will not have enough durability with that kind of optical zoom, and add in otterbox case or something similar will make it even worse in terms of thickness. That said, next, i shall wait and see what Sony Honami can offer; im also interested in that phone although it's still in the rumor mill.

Loll.. you got owned there. Troll attempt fail there my friend. If Samsung's phones are a "brick", then the Lumia line must be an elephant.

Let let them be; people can call me a fanboy if they want, but i show interest in multiple products, not just Nokia's. Those labeling me as a blind fanboy should look in the mirror themselves first. Nokia has a long history with fantastic camera in their phones.

Has it occurred to you that this is not an attack on fanboys, but rather an attack on fanboys who do nothing but talk smack at each other like a couple of 12 year olds at recess?

It's okay since they're also nokia fanboys.

haha You do know that the Lumia 920 is a brick of epic proportions right? This is going to be way, WAY worse than that. At least the GS4 zoom is only thick. It isn't too tall and too wide like the one that is going to be announced by Nokia.

Are you really going to defend the GS4 Zoom? It's not even a GS4. It's a GS2 mated to a Galaxy Camera. It's the niche product to end all niche products. If I see an actual person talking into his camera, I will laugh so hard. Also, if you look at leaked photos, the EOS is narrower than the 920. It will be bulky compared to the Android flagships, but at least Nokia is trying to give the EOS decent proportions.

Not defending the product, I am talking strictly about size. I don't argue against dimensions and the Lumia 920 is much bigger than the GS4 zoom. The GS4 is actually small like a small point and shoot camera. The Nokia bricks? Not so much.

Also has a smaller, lower-quality screen. I don't think we should be comparing the EOS and Zoom at all, but there's nothing else to compare at the moment. One is positioned as a flagship cameraphone, the other as a niche phonecamera.

In what way is the Nokia Lumia 920 bigger than the GS4 Zoom? It certainly can't be thicker.

lol in length and width......and probably weight. Unless in idiot Nokia fan land physics and measurements are ignored. It is the same size as a Galaxy S4 mini but thicker, which is smaller than the Lumia 920 in every dimension. Therefore the Galaxy S4 zoom is smaller than the Lumia 920 in two dimensions. Looks like you Nokia fans need to watch more Sesame street or Dora the explorer or something. You guys can't even use rulers and metrics properly yet.

Since when did 185g turn into 170g? Nokia fan boys are getting worse than homeless people now....

and is it so relevant to you 170 and 185? can't you lift additional 15 g? you're 5?
