Nokia EOS: First Hands On Mini Review

Yes it's true, before the release of the latest Nokia flagship the Lumia 925 there is already its successor in the pipeline, but because there is no official name for it at the moment we'll just refer to it as the Nokia EOS.



The Nokia EOS we have managed to get our hands on is big, black, and makes a bulge in our shorts when its in our pockets. It has a nice feel to it, solid, smooth, a bit weighty and we feel like the ultra hi-res snapper has a lot to do with this but we'll pick up in that area later. It feels cool and metallic, although not sure if it is actually metal or whether its a premium polycarbonate plastic, either way, it feels great in the hand.

Looks wise, we reckon it looks similar to the rest of the Lumia line-up apart from the 'flagship' Lumia 925, from the front and sides people can even mistake it for a Lumia 920, until you turn it back just enough to see the raised camera, the main focus point of this phone. The button layout is also left pretty much the same, with the left side bare, and the right side lining up the volume rocker, power/lock, and the camera/shutter key.
 
  
The top contains a micro-sim card tray(yes, because its a non-removable cover), 3.5mm headphone jack, and a noise cancellation microphone.



The bottom contains a drilled speaker grille, a micro USB socket, followed by a lanyard u-port.



The back contains nothing but 2 little metal contacts for the wireless charging covers similar to how the Lumia 925 will have. And the main focus point; a massive camera with a short pulse red eye/led flash and a room filling xenon flash. The Camera is marked with XX Megapixel, however we don't think this is some new quirky marketing lingo, instead, its to further keep the phone specs undercover or they haven't decided how many megapixels to market it with yet; 33? 40? 41?



Now although we've managed to get our hands on one, the specs are still a bit of a mystery as we weren't allowed to connect it up to a PC and just got some snaps at our meeting with our insider, even going through the menu and settings, all the specs are hidden. We have got some screen shots of the software and settings page, but information may be omitted to protect our insider from getting traced, we know you guys will understand. The specs on the web do pretty much some this phone up, we believe GSMArena.com has the closest match to the specs.

More info will soon be posted here and our twitter page @vizileaks you can expect some screen shots and a new piece of software that gives you control of the camera's features to the fullest...also it wouldn't be fair to talk about the camera and not show you some true examples huh? ... stay tuned...

Update: Here is a sneak peak of the camera in action, you can see for sure it has optical focus and image stabilization...

  3. Excellent!

    Please, I beg of you to find out - does this device have OIS/Optical Image Stabilization like the lumia 920, 925 and 928? Would it be possible to see image/video-samples?

  6. What did you guys think of the phone's screen resolution ? And is the weight of the phone really a big issue or is it just in comparison with other modern light weight smartphones ?

    1. probably it would be 768 x 1280 pixels with 4.5 inches and 332 ppi , wight is really hard to guess specially after big move from nokia to lightest wight like in 925 , personlay i think it would be around 155-165g .

  7. Are you sure the contacts are for wireless charging? I would be a little disappointed if it didn't have an integrated coil :( I can easily pass over it, but still... You know what i mean :)

  8. I don't think GSMArena's specs are true

    a 1.2 GHz dual core krait CPU isn't enough for 1080P encoding, and it's really old

    and they say optical zoom

    1. they dont use the cpu for 1080p encoding , like the 808 it has a dedicated gpu for it

  19. Big, black, weighty, bulging in your shorts and feels good in the hand. Is this a joke?

    ReplyDelete
  20. But if it can take decent picture like my old Sony DSC-v1, I might get one.

    ReplyDelete
  21. With lumia especially 920 the black one dont look as good as other colours, this one would look great in white or even red.

  22. Thank you for this sharing info news. I was just about to purchase a contract of a new mobile phone with better image quality.

  24. Hey thanks for sharing everything! If you are Nokia, this is such a genius marketing push! -especially with WWDC next week and Samsung's June event (S4 Zoom-which looks absolutely ridiculous btw).

    Kudos to whoever you are!
