Image of alleged 41-megapixel Nokia 909 leaks [Update]

Information of Nokia's rumored smartphone with a 41-megapixel camera, code-named "EOS," has leaked steadily over the past few months, though few images have revealed the front of the device. Now, however, a clear image of the smartphone has leaked, and it has a familiar appearance.

The Twitter account of @evleaks, which has revealed numerous devices in recent months before their official announcements, posted a promotional picture of the new Nokia device late Wednesday, seen above. AT&T will reportedly carry the phone, which @evleaks claims will be formally called the Nokia Lumia 1020, making it the first Windows Phone device from the company with a four-digit product number.

Because the picture is of the smartphone's front, the portion that houses the high-quality camera can't be seen. Previously leaked photos indicated the device would feature a prominent bump on the back because of the camera. The importance of the phone's camera can be seen on the device's Start screen, which shows a previously unknown "Nokia Pro Cam" app, hinting at a custom camera experience from the company.

The general appearance of the Lumia 1020 mirrors the high-end Lumia line, such as the Lumia 920. Nokia has established the style since its first Windows Phone device, the Nokia Lumia 800, launched with Windows Phone 7 in late 2011.

Nokia is expected to officially announce the Lumia 1020 on July 11.

Update: @evleaks has uploaded the following image of the back of the device, which the Twitter account now claims will drop the Lumia branding and be called the Nokia 909 and not the Lumia 1020. Lumia has been Nokia's Windows Phone brand since its partnership with Microsoft was announced, though its previous 41-megapixel smartphone, which ran Symbian, was called the Nokia 808 PureView.
