Nokia EOS Gets Quick Review, Camera Details Still Unknown

Nokia might as well create the EOS official already, after multiple leaks the WP8 sharpshooter now has a short preview. The preview is light on details, but is still an fascinating first see at the 808 PureView successor.

The phone reportedly feels a bit on the heavy side and the reviewer from ViziLeaks couldn’t quite create out the material. It's probably polycarbonate, but possibly metal too (whichever it is, it's certainly high quality). The Nokia EOS uses a design very similar to the Lumia 920.

Nokia EOS got a quick review before it is even official

The arrangement of controls, ports and slots is the same as on the other Lumia phones. On the left are the volume rocker, Power/Lock key and the all-vital shutter key. On top is the microSIM card slot and the 3.5mm audio jack, with the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port and loudspeaker grilsl at the bottom.

The design of Lumia phones is fairly standardized

It's the back that's interesting, really, with the bulging capturing camera module with Carl Zeiss lens, xenon flash and Light Emitting Diode (LED) light. Unfortunately, the ViziLeaks team was not allowed to check the megapixel count on the capturing camera or acquire any other specs.

Update: The Nokia EOS has a mechanical shutter, which can be seen in the video below.

Also on the back are two pogo pins (like the Lumia 925 has) for connecting wireless charging covers, meaning the Nokia EOS probably won't have this built in. Nokia probably didn’t want to add any more weight to an already heavy phone (the 808 PureView tipped the scales at 169g).
