Nokia EOS gets "leaked"
What you’re seeing is a the so-called Nokia EOS lying next to a standard Lumia 920 or 800- both of them having essentially the same body build. You’ll notice what appears to be the same glass up front, Windows Phone home button, and polycarbonate body we’ve witnessed appearing on Lumia devices for over a year, this time in yellow.
This color and the fact that this device has a rather sizable camera bump on its back link up well with the tipped specifications appearing earlier this week. This device is shown here to work with a detachable wireless charging case (not pictured) due to its twin back-facing ports below the lens. These holes may also simply be very closely situated microphone ports, though that’s a bit less likely.
According to this leak, the Nokia EOS will be appearing at AT&T first with a launch date of July 9th. That’s not a very long way off, so it’d be much more likely that such a date would be where the device were announced, not fully launched in stores.
The back of this device is suggested to be working with a setup not unlike that of the Nokia 808 Pureview. Here you’ll find a 41-megapixel sensor along with Xenon flash + LED, OIS, and as MyNokiaBlog notes, a possible variable aperture. Such a setup would out-do most pocketable point-and-shoot cameras and, attached to Windows Phone 8 up front, would certainly provide a unique solution for Microsoft and Nokia.
UPDATE - GSMARENA has obtained some new photos of the "EOS" handset with the help of a new anonymous tipster and a twitter account with the name Vizileaks ,here you can see the same handset but with a different color variant and the camera assembly
