Nokia EOS Windows Phone leaked again, snapped from all angles [Update: another pic!]

Nokia currently has three versions of its Windows Phone flagship, in the form of the Lumia 928, the thin and light aluminium-bodied Lumia 925, and the original Lumia 920. But as we've known for some time, a new range-topper is set to join the company's line-up soon.

Yesterday, the first images of the handset known as 'EOS' - or by its alternative development codename, 'Elvis' - were leaked, revealing a device that builds on the design themes first seen in Nokia's N9 MeeGo handset, and in many later Lumia Windows Phones. EOS is expected to pack much of the camera technology first seen in the Nokia 808 PureView, although it looks like it will be somewhat sleeker than its chunky Symbian predecessor.

Plenty more images have now emerged, with GSM Arena managing to get their hands on pics of the new device from all angles. 

EOS certainly appears much sleeker in black than in yellow, but there's no hiding that camera on its rear. 

It looks pretty ordinary from the front, especially in black. The three familiar Windows Phone capacitive touch buttons are present, along with the volume, power and camera buttons on the right edge. Certain details have been blacked out on the images; some of these details may be identifying marks tying the handset to a particular individual, or could be related to carrier branding.

Twitter account @ViziLeaks, the source of one of yesterday's leaked images, also revealed this close-up of the rear camera extrusion, clearly showing off the Xenon flash, PureView branding and Carl Zeiss lens. The 'XX megapixel' label is a placeholder; it's common for pre-production devices to feature this kind of ambiguous labelling. 

While these images, like yesterday's, are also unconfirmed - originating from anonymous or unverified sources - the fact that multiple sources have revealed what appears to be the same device would seem to confirm that this is indeed Nokia's new flagship Windows Phone. While we don't have any further details on specs, we hopefully won't have long to wait for more details. It's widely believed that Nokia will formally announce the device next month

Update: @ViziLeaks has leaked again! The latest pic shows the EOS handset switched on, with some decent screen visibility in sunlight. One interesting detail to note: at the bottom left, you'll see the top of a tile bearing the 'EE' logo.

EE is currently the UK's only 4G carrier - could this indicate that the handset is being trialled on the EE network in the UK? We'll have to wait and see - but given that EOS has apparently been in testing with AT&T in the US recently, we wouldn't be surprised.

****ers its 20 megapixel ,XX means 20 in roman numbers...
I gonna buy this phone any how bcoz I am waiting for this phone from 2 years ....

You really need to love photography inorder to justify such a bulky phone. Seems to me that if you love photography that much you're better off with an actual high-end camera...

I understand Nokia wants to focus on something to be 'best of class' in but this seems too much of a sacrifice. A phone like this will never be in a list that includes the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

Looks good but this hump for the camera is not for me. If they can't figure it out without that then don't bother - I rather carry a regular camera at that point...

Pretty slim for what it is trying to accomplish in a Windows OS and High End Point and Shoot combo package.

Should have a good DoF and be able to accomplish Bokeh with easy with this camera. Enhance their Photo Lens offerings along with the Motion Capture and it could well replace the Point and Shoot Camera. Should be interesting on how they market this. They are pushing Photo taking and night shots. It makes sense because that is what many of do when we want to capture memories of going out with friends. In a bar or dimly lit room and it's not always the best outcome for capturing our memories. This allow for it and then to share it immediately with friends and family.

It looks better than I expected. They did a great job at minimizing the protrusion of the lens from the body. I hope they add some kind of lens cover or use sapphire crystal for the surface of the camera.

Yeah, I think the hump is as minor as it's going to get anytime soon but if you compare it to to the original PureView 808 it's way smaller.

I think it's weird naming after Elvis. Just like this phone he was on the fat side. He died on the ******. Lets hope the same doesn't happen here.

What's the practical point of such a big bulge if there is nothing underneath it...? Camera is pretty small itself and will be pretty poor quality comparing to Canon EOS cameras, not talking about Carl Zeiss "lens", where Carl Zeiss is just pointless marketting. It's nowhere near Canon EF-S, not talking about Canon EF L lenses.

Nokia keep playing same false advertisement song over and over - like it was with Nokia N97 (and other S60v5 devices), Lumia 920 etc.

It's a replacement for carrying a separate P&S camera not a SLR. this camera will compete with most P&S' on picture quality, as for size, with the bulge this camera is the same thickness or thinner than a P&S.

Almost seems like you're just looking for arguments to slam the phone instead of finding alid arguments. and if you compare a camera with a Carl Zeiss or other quality lens to a regular plastic or non photo quality glass/crystal lens camera, you will see that Carl Zeiss is not just marketing. the Thing is that Nokia has some semi exclusive licensing with Calr Zeiss, so while many other phones use their lenses, they don't get to say that they do.

Indeed it is. But they used Canon's brand in order to fool people and falsify abilities of camera.

fool people ? this is not the official name, the only people who even know about it is techie nerds, who reads up on these news.

Only thing I miss would be a lens cover. normally on a phone I wouldn't care. But this is actually a very good camera as well, and then I would like to be able to protect the lens.

930 would relate to Windows Phone 9 though. A 1020 model number isn't out of the question though. I have a feeling they might actually name this device though, and this super phone being the only one that breaks their number naming convections

Benefit of adopting 930 could be that they can scale back the pixel count at 830, 730, or 630 perhaps....hitting the phont-camera market at every price point....just speculating..

Where have you seen that the 930 will be a Windows Phone 9 device? Given Microsofts current strategy, they are going to want to keep it at 8 for a while so that it matches their flagship OS Windows 8. With the announcement of Windows 8.1, it appears they will be releasing updates in smaller increments. The Lumia 930 will likely be a Windows Phone 8.1 device, which they've already announced they are working on and is due out by 2014.

Being on Windows platform, can we really expect something new compare to all these 5xx / 6xx / 7xx or such ??

As starting from 520 to top end 925, they all look and work the same

iPhone, iPhone 3g and iPhone 3GS looked the same.

iPhone 4, iPhone 4S looked the same.

iPhone 5 looks like a giant iPhone 4S.

HTC stayed with HTC Desire design for all 2012 phones along with HTC One X design.

Realize this that if a hardware design is working fine than there is no need to change it.

The beauty lies in the dollar sign..! =)

Looks pretty sexy! This pic looks better than the one posted earlier. On the other hand, that hump! I'd rather carry my Nikon and a nice slim phone. Not for everyone apparently.

You'd rather lug around a ginormous DSLR just so you can reduce a few mm of thickness on your phone? LOL
Yes! I love slim phones. I still believe it looks sexy and they've incorporated the camera decently, but I just couldn't hold that phone up to my head with the hump. Just personal preference.

This is the Internet, logic has not place in this conversation.

Then you must feel really self-conscious about having to the use the landline at work then. Oh, the horror!

I rather carry a DSLR period. Still cannot top a DSLR and I know a few people who always carry their DSLR with them. Camera phones are fine for a quick photo here and there or the average person, but again...doesnt top a DSLR.

And when you lug that DSLR around to bars and clubs and trendy coffee shops, do you get self-conscious that the phone that you're using might not be hip enough because it's too fat?

Nope, and i dont see anyone else here either that would be. Just people who dont like the design. I dont like the hump because I like to place my phone on flat surfaces. Looks like if you try to type on a flat surface with this phone, it will be awkward and move a lot depending on what part of the screen you are pressing.

Its a cool looking phone, just not for everyone.

Dude, its my personal preference. Calm the hell down. Look at my post. I like the phone in general just not hump. What does a landline at work have to do with me preferring to carry my DSLR? Any important pictures I want to take is always done with my Nikon. Sounds like you are pressing the issue to hard my friend.

Hey! Just wait, the companies may make the case for the phone mentioned above but that the case will have a hole for the camera hump... so once you have the case on, you wouldn't worry about typing on phone on the flat surface.. like I have a case for my old Evo 3D... Relax, you paranoid geeks.

I am relaxed. This is just my opinion. And why should I have a case? I never use a case. Just ads to the bulk of the phone.

The 920 has a curved back. The back of this device is actually flatter despite the camera bulge. I reckon this would be even more stable than a 920 is.

Absolutely nothing, because that's a straw man.

to which I made the comment about using fat landline phones.
