By now, you might already have seen us professing love for the Nokia Lumia 1020‘s 41 megapixel camera. While we were not allowed to transfer photo samples from the demo units on the show floor, we did get a lot of glimpses at some insanely detailed full resolution samples, as well as crystal clear 5MP oversampled photos on several Nokia devices here at the event. We noticed that some of the samples that were shown to us were already up on the official Nokia Press website, and like us, you might want to get ready to drop your jaws to the floor. Here are some handpicked full resolution, oversampled and low light “official” camera samples straight from Nokia for your viewing pleasure.

So, the official Windows Blog has published a Q&A between Nokia’s Kevin Shields and Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore to explain an interesting doubt we’ve been having. What did Microsoft have to do, to accommodate the monstrosity of a sensor’s data into the Windows Phone’s pipes, especially when considering the fact that the MSM8960 chip actually cannot handle more than 20MPs of sensor data. So, how did Nokia do it, and what did Microsoft do to help Nokia bring this technology to Windows Phone? Lets find out what Joe Belfiore and Kevin Shields have to say, minus the extra crap from their Q&A. Read on.

Well known source of pre release information, Evleaks, has struck gold once again with a leaked press render of the Nokia Lumia 1020 heading to AT&T. The image suggests a subtle enhancement to the design formula pioneered by the Lumia 920. A very interesting addition that can be spotted is the oft rumored Nokia Pro Cam application that will hopefully provide advanced control over the handset’s rumored 41 megapixel sensor.

Remember the last time when the Nokia EOS and its circular 41 MP camera hump leaked out? It looked a lot like the Lumia 920 with a polycarbonate body that time, but there is yet another leak, and from the looks of it, it’s from the shady factories in China. The above two images literally show off a metallic body for the highly awaited Nokia EOS device to be launched by Nokia at an event in NYC on July 11th. The metallic body is a surprise as the device was already shown off in a polycarbonate body, but from what we can see above, the metallic body seems like an option as a part of the different colours, or at least we hope.
Update: The device in the images above seems to be unnaturally long, especially when you note the openings for the controls on the right. Is this actually a Nokia phablet we are looking at?

It was February 2012, good year after the big announcement when Nokia bid a huge farewell to Symbian in the form of the Nokia 808 PureView launch at MWC. While it lost a legacy, the company actually solidified and stretched its R&D superiority in smartphone cameras. Building on the Lumia 920’s anti-shake merits, Nokia plans to do a repeat of the earlier success, but now with its main strategic flagship OS, Windows Phone. That said, we had just witnessed a barrage of leaks regarding the successor to the Nokia 808, called the Nokia EOS(a codename) PureView, with its circular camera facade housing the purported 41 MP sensor. Unsurprisingly, more images have now leaked, that add more credibility to the earlier rumour. Lets discuss and speculate with the new leaked images then.
