Nokia has sent invitations to press. At first glance, the invitation doesn’t seem to have anything special. However, if you read between the lines, it seems the Finnish firm is teasing a rumoured handset called the Lumia EOS, a Windows Phone 8-powered handset with a 41-megapixel camera.
No phone is shown on the invite. It only shows a magnifying glass with the date, time, and place of the event. What gives us a clue as to what to expect on the event is the title. The invite is titled “Zoom Reinvented.” This hints that we’ll be seeing a camera-centric smartphone.
Previous leaks show the EOS’ rear casing with a pretty large hole, which is believed to be for its camera. In a recent leak, a camera component is shown with “41-megapixel” on it. These leaks point to a powerful camera. Unfortunately, the handset’s specs still remain a mystery.
The only thing we know for certain is that the EOS will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 just like its more current handsets such as the Lumia 925 (check out Nokia Lumia 925 here). Since Nokia did announce that it would no longer be shipping Symbian-powered handsets by summer, it is likely to be a Windows Phone handset.
Nokia will be hosting its event on the 11th of July in New York. The event will be kicking off at 11am.
