Company blog post claims '41 million reasons' to watch event
Nokia has effectively confirmed a large number of leaks for the Lumia EOS smartphone with a high-resolution 41-megapixel rear camera. A company blog post states that an event in New York on July 11th will have "41 million reasons" to attend or watch a live stream, matching the number engraved onto a leaked metal camera faceplate.
Earlier rumors and photographs have suggested it will be a Windows Phone device, potentially something similar to the Lumia 920, which is also hinted at in the teaser image by the bright yellow background typically associated with the Lumia range.
The Nokia EOS has been shown in a number of photographs to have a protruding rear hump, in order to accommodate the camera and its optics. Held inside a polycarbonate body, it is believed to use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, use a 4.5-inch 720p OLED screen, have support for wireless charging, use a 2,000mAh battery, and initially launch on AT&T. More accurate specifications could be revealed shortly before the event itself next month.
