Following on its ‘Zoom Reinvented’ invites last week, Nokia has posted an image on its official blog teasing “41 million reasons” to look forward to its media gathering next month.
The Finnish phone-maker has summoned journalists and investors from around the world to attend its event in New York on July 11th to see its latest smartphone innovation, widely believed to be the long-rumoured EOS smartphone featuring a 41-megapixel PureView camera.
Assuming Nok Nok hasn’t magically invented 41 million new features, the teaser is almost certainly alluding to the handset that’s been a subject of much hype and conjecture for months.
The EOS is hotly tipped to be the first handset in the Windows Phone-powered Lumia range to feature a bona fide PureView camera sensor, which originally debuted on the ill-fated PureView 808.
Alas, little else is known about the handset, but going by rumours at least, it’s expected to come with a 4.5-inch HD AMOLED display, 32GB of internal storage and possibly a metal unibody design similar to the Lumia 925.
With further imaging credentials in the shape of Carl Zeiss optics, Xenon flash and optical zoom, the Nokia EOS could throw a serious challenge for the title of ‘best camera smartphone’ against the likes of HTC One and the 16-megapixel Samsung Galaxy S4 ‘Zoom’.
For those of you who didn’t get an invite and/or can’t make it for the event in person, Nokia will be streaming a live webcast of the announcement on its official blog.
We’ll be sure to bring you more on the unveiling closer to time, so stay tuned.
