Remember the metallic Nokia EOS that has surfaced a couple days ago, contradicting everything we thought we knew about the design and build of Nokia’s upcoming cameraphone?
Several earlier Nokia EOS leaks made everybody believe that the smartphone will be made out of polycarbonate, just like the other recent Lumias. That’s why, when the pics showing an EOS sporting a full metallic chassis have surfaced, a lot of people believed that the respective model was a 2nd generation prototype or a different model altogether. However, based on the newest leaks coming from the same source, it looks like the “metallic” Nokia EOS has entered mass production (or at least an advanced testing phase that requires more units). Take a look.
Well folks, it looks like the metallic Nokia EOS is a real device, not some odd prototype. However, this doesn’t mean that the polycarbonate model has been scrapped. It’s not entirely impossible for Nokia to release both models on the market. Hell, it might be possible for the other Nokia Lumia models out there (Nokia Lumia 920, 925, 928) to receive a metal version. Wouldn’t that be cool?
Anyway, the new leaks havent brought along any new info regarding the smartphone’s specs, but it has been rumored that the Nokia EOS will come with a 720p 4.5 inch display, a 41MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash, and 32GB of internal storage. The smartphone will revidently run on Windows Phone 8 (remains to be seen wich version of the OS) and is rumored to come pre loaded with professional Camera software.
What do you think? Would you go for a metal Nokia EOS or does a polycarbonate build sounds better? Would you like to see metallic versions of the other Lumias (920, 925, 928) being released? Let us know in the comments section.
