Rumour - Nokia EOS spotted?
I'm not very good in spreading "rumours", but this one is too tempting not to quote. WMPoweruser.com has "an observant reader" who had the chance to "sneak a peak" at the Nokia EOS. This is what this unknown source claims to have seen:
The device is made of polycarbonate, and is about as thick as the Nokia Lumia 920 in the middle, but is highly tapered at both ends, giving the impression of a much slimmer device.
The lens housing is round in shape and does not protrude much. The flash is Xenon, and the flash and lens are both smaller than the Nokia 808 Pureview. Next to the flash is a small red LED which may be a focus assist light.
The lens also has an automatic cover that opens when the camera app is started. The number of megapixels were not marked on the prototype, with “XX megapixels” only being written on the lens housing.
There is a new camera app called "Nokia Pro Camera"with a completely new interface. There is also manual focus available through the app. The regular photo app is also available.
The screen size and resolution is same as 920, and appears to be AMOLED. The speaker holes are at the bottom as the handset. The handset was much lighter than the Nokia Lumia 920.
I'm not sure what to make of this. It does sound plausible, I'm just surprised someone is able to give such a detailed description - looks like he must have had it in his (her?) hands. Anyway, this makes me feel confident we'll see the Nokia EOS this summer... Or is it just wishful thinking?
