Two unknown Nokia phones, Eros and Mars, shown on O2 list

Next week, specifically on July 11th, Nokia will hold a press event in New York City where some believe it will reveal "EOS," the code name for a new Lumia Windows Phone device with a 41 megapixel camera. But does Nokia have even more up its sleeve that we don't know about yet?

The German language website Mobiflip has posted up an images of a document it says comes from the wireless carrier O2 Germany. The list shows a number of already released or announced Nokia Lumia smartphones but also has two more phones with code names that previously have not reported on before: "Eros" and "Mars."

It's more than possible that "Eros" could be a misspelling or simply a variant for the "EOS" smartphone. As far as the "Mars" listing, there doesn't appear to be any Nokia phone waiting in the wings that could tie into that code name. It's possible that it is yet another variant on a previously released Lumia smartphone, or it could be an all new device.

The same list also shows some new smartphones from HTC, including references to an HTC One Mini product and another for a HTC One Max smartphone.

I think the press conference next week on July 11th is like 5 hours long so I think they will be announcing and or showing more than just one device.

Why?
i would love to sit down and talk for 5 hours about just one phone

kidding, but yea, i agree with you, 5 hours can do a lot more than 1 or 2 devices... but my guess is that will talk about 8.1 updates that are coming. i wouldn't be surprised if MS is there announcing the new phone be directly on 8.1

There are actually other devices in Nokia Portfolio that will be announced this year. Nokia had promised 'a summer of announcements' at 925 launch. There are phablets coming this year but that'll most likely happen at Nokia World and as mentioned above there are rumours of a device with specs similar to the 920 but a lower price point. If such a device exist I would expect it to be announced along with or only after the introduction of next gen devices at Nokia World.

Eos, Eros and Mars are all mythological Gods so maybe there is some truth in this.

Not necessarily a misspelling: Eros was the Greek god of love, Mars was the Roman God of war as well as the "father" of all Romans because he was Rea Silvia's husband and father of Romolo and Remo; the former was, in the legend, the founder of Rome.

cant remember where I read it yesterday, but I heard something about nokia releasing a lower end and cheaper priced lumia 920.

no,it said a lower end lumia 920,so I would presume its a lumia 920 shell,maybe with a cheaper snapdragon cpu,less ram(512), WVGA screen, but way cheaper.

ok found some more info about this


The low cost Lumia 920 is thought to be a competitor for Apple's much rumored low cost iPhone. It is expected to be released in either September or October and is said to have a 4.7 inch WXGA CBD AMOLED display. Design is reportedly similar to Lumia 720, while being lighter and slimmer. 8 megapixel Carl-Zeiss optics rear camera is expected along with the same CPU and GPU combo as the conventional Lumia 920. This smartphone will reportedly be aggressively priced and will replace Nokia's Lumia 82X range.

Nokia Lumia 920 > Nokia Lumia 925 > Nokia Lumia 927.5 > Nokia Lumia 929.25


it might be hard to count but it could increase to 930 ... better naming scheme then "Android" Galaxy Ace Mini S4 Plus Note Advance Rush Express Rugby Pro Fame Mega Grand Quattro Core Zoom Reverb Victory Duos Stellar.....

and that's just since last 12 months.. I prefer Nokia's way of numbering and not trying to confuse consumers..

Eros and Mars could be variations of the same phone, one for women and the other for men. It would be weird, but a lot of companies have tried to build devices "for women" before. Or it could be watches...

Is there any reason you think that (mythology?) or is it just a guess?

Eros = God of Love for Greek aka Cupid for Romans ... Mars = God of War for Romans..

interesting.. did they have any other mythology in their other product names?

I could see the Mars being the huge phone that has 41MP camera and the Eros being more of a new 820 style phone that is more budget in all the colours. If you think about it, the 820 was announce last September.. it is very due for a new model where as the others are newer..

If I remember correctly, I was in school 40 years ago, Eos was the Greek goddess of the dawn; in Latin her name was Aurora.

Not quite! Eros = dude.

"dude" is slang for a man

Yes, I know that, what I do not understand is what Eros, Greek God of love, has to do with Eos, a Greek goddess of,the dawn. Unless he thought that the two were the same... and,they are not. They are two different deities.

Ah, I see what happened here. You were supplementing Lachlan's post. I read it as if you were correcting it.
