Pictures of Nokia's (NOK +1.4%) rumored EOS phone - a Lumia device said to feature a 41MP image sensor similar to that of the Symbian-based 808 PureView - have leaked. Like the 808, the EOS has a giant, protruding, camera module on its back, replete with a large flash. In-line with a May report, it also appears to have a polycarbonate body and a ~4.5" display. Sources tell The Verge the pictures are of "genuine engineering samples," that Nokia is expected to launch the device in July, and that AT&T (T) will exclusively sell it in the U.S.

    This phone will fit in just fine with the rest of the Lumia lineup.

    Letting AT&T have an exclusive is a big mistake!

    This phone will have more to do with Nokias return to legitimacy than any of the others. With 41mp you can zoom 5 times and not loose any definition. A top of the line windows phone carrying office, Xbox, great mapping, Here drive and all the other features that really stand out with live tiles and now sporting a 41mp Carl Zies camera. Can anyone else even come close to that? Blackberry advertises their Camera. Samsung also profiles theirs in commercials. Up against the EOS their offerings are at best juvenile.

    Does the devil really need an advocate? He already has the lawyers and politicians.

     

    Photography is one of the biggest selling points with smartphones. This camera is a differentiator for Nokia. Just one more thing that sets it apart for the people that pay attention and the sheeple follow them.

    Uh right... only soccer moms are concerned about camera specs.... maybe in your own little world JM, and just think of all those Apple and Samsung fan-boys doing nothing else but tout their specs and capabilities. A nice stylish phone with the ONLY point and shoot quality camera should have a little more appeal.

    It's true that the phone is not really good looking, however it looks much better than 808 and it has much better specifications. Nokia is trying to target a large proportion of customers who have been expecting for years to get an excellent, almost professional camera in their phones. If the camera configurations are as good as we could expect and if the price is in the range of the Lumia 920, we could fairly expect Nokia to sell 2-3m devices per quarter. This phone could be a perfect fit for the photo amateurs, massively present in the emerging markets.
    Next versions, with more elegant designs should become best sellers, however, Microsoft will have to work with Nokia on a competitive Windows 8 photo software for PC.

    Know anyone who has a Symbian phone JM? They were being discontinued, not to mention you had to order it online. So who would buy the 808 to begin with? Duh...

    My 920 takes amazing pictures. With the aforementioned improvement there is no reason to own a point and shoot camera.

    @jj Exactly, I think Nokia is into something big, beyond plain old better camera in a smartphone trend:

    This device has been intentionally designed to look like a camera. I hope they start comparing this to point-and shoot cameras and not other smartphones in their marketing.

    Some of the latest Samsung commercials are trying to tout their cameras, when in reality their quality and features are no match for the current and upcoming Lumias... Instead of a PureView maybe Samsung could label their product the "BlurView".

    I've been noticing the same thing with Samsung ads. I think they must be threatened by the Nokia camera push. It will be hard for them to compete with this. Anyone see any screen size specs? Looks like it may be 5".

    With a product like this, you would likely buy a case that will hide the awkward aesthetics while protecting your investment. This will appeal very much to the female "soccer mom" population as well as many photo enthusiast and set Nokia even further apart from the competition. I see a 3 product Microsoft ecosystem developing that is going to be formidable going forward. You will have a phone/camera/etc, the XBox One, and a full featured tablet all running a Win8 (metroesque) environment that interoperates well. Maybe even a "Note" sized device with a full operating system that you can use as a phone and then dock at the office to use as a full featured pc that outputs video to a big screen. Then you would just need that and an XBox One. I really like where Microsoft is going and I believe they are best positioned to make it all happen. Long on Nokia and Msoft.
