A new set of pictures has leaked showing the forthcoming Nokia EOS 41-megapixel PureView camera phone

Yet more pictures of Nokia’s Lumia EOS PureView camera phone have emerged online giving the clearest idea yet of what the phone will look like.

The leaks are now starting to come in thick and fast, suggesting that rumoured July 9 launch date is probably very close to the mark.

There are actually two sets of new photos from different sources but each shows the same style of device, reinforcing each other’s legitimacy, if you will. Both are very sharp and well-shot image collections though, where before we saw mostly quite blurry snaps.

As before, we can see the Nokia EOS’ sizeable camera bump housing  the 41-megapixel PureView camera with Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilisation and, possibly, if rumours are true, a variable aperture. Rumours suggest the EOS PureView will replicate the Nokia 808 PureView’s lossless zoom.

Much of the EOS’ design echoes what we’ve seen before on the Lumia 920, so it has a fully polycarbonate bodyshell and it’s quite thick and chunky.

It’s reportedly only 1mm thinner than the Lumia 920, which was widely criticised for its weight and bulk, so it’ll be interesting to see how consumers react.

Particularly as Nokia has just released the Lumia 925, an 8.5mm thick aluminium and polycarbonate handset with the Lumia 920’s 8.7-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilisation. The Lumia 925 only weighs 139g.

Reports also indicate the Nokia EOS will have a 1280x768 pixel display just like the Lumia 920 and Lumia 925 – whether it will feature the same ClearBlack and PureMotion HD+ technology isn’t clear yet, but it seems likely.

Microsoft is poised to launch a new update for Windows Phone in the coming months which will expand support for displays to include Full HD 1080p resolutions, so in this respect the EOS will be outdated fairly quickly.

The rest of the hardware spec is unknown, but thought to be fairly standard Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 fare. That means it’ll likely use a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 at around 1.5GHz.

Notably, however, the EOS will have 32GB of onboard storage and no microSD support and it’s said it will capture a high-grade 35-megapixel shot and a lower-end 5-megapixel shot simultaneously – one for storage and one for sharing via social media.

What do you think readers? Would you take on a brick this size just for the amazing shots?
