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.

The Nokia 808 PureView, a cameraphone with a 41 Megapixel sensor, was a major disruption in the field of Smartphone cameras. It is a well known fact that smartphones are rapidly replacing the mainstream and traditional “point and shoot” cameras. With the 808 PureView, Nokia set a high benchmark for imaging quality for a smartphone. However, it had shortcomings in software. Running on Symbian, it was not much loved by the time it released. While it had its own advantages, it was still not able to cater to current needs, leading to one of the main reasons why Nokia switched to Windows Phone. However, it is not unnatural to feel that the technology is bound to end up in other Nokia camera phones, recently fortified with the rumoured and upcoming Nokia EOS PureView, purportedly running on Windows Phone 8.
It’s been a long time coming, and it’s a given that Nokia’s sprucing up its efforts in the camera department again, after a controversial, but successful launch of the Nokia Lumia 920, a different PureView device. But is it also a given that the new Nokia PureView will be as good as the old one? Currently, we would say no, unless drastic changes happen. What drastic changes are we talking about? Read on past the break to find out.
