Nokia EOS: 41MP it will be? Update: a hoax? True after all? Updated once more...

Thank to my colleagues over at NokiaMob, I just saw some interesting shots as shared by NokiaPowerUser, who is quoting a Chinese site, WinP.cn (credit where credit is due).

Now in these fresh leaks, it appears there will be a "Nokia EOS" in a full metal body as well, although the product in the shot showing this still looks quite unfinished. It's great news I'd say, but even greater is the shot isn't showing "XX" on the lense cover anymore, but the actual "41".

This however, mind you, might just be photoshopped as well. The square empty space in the body seems big enough for that sensor anyway, but remember nothing is sure until July 11. I don't have anything more to add really, but the shots that are by now no doubt flying all over the web...

Update 1: PureView Clubmember  BerryTh pointed out, it only says "Zeiss" on the lens cover. For anyone clever enough working with metal, it will not be very hard to make anything like this and get worldwide attention. Not writing "Carl Zeiss" on the lens cover most likely gives this away as a hoax...

In the (strange) video shared earlier by ViziLeaks it does say "Carl Zeiss''...

I'll share the "leaked shots" below anyway, so you can make your mind up for yourself. I must say I don't really trust these anymore... I should remember to focus on trusted sources and not share every rumour that's spreading across the web... It's so tempting, however. I'm sure you'll understand :-)

Update 2 (june 16, morning): In a reaction below you can see ( see the link there) that Carl Zeiss is dropping "Carl" from its brand name. This means these shots couldbe real after all... Confusing, isn't it? And exciting! :-)

Update 3 (june 16, evening): Engadget is pretty sure the leaked shots are for real: "this time the same leakster from Sina Weibo managed to get a shot of at least 12 of them, meaning the device has likely reached some sort of production stage". See their post over here.
