UPDATE: It looks like we’re back to calling it the Lumia 1020. Windows Phone VP Joe Belfiore posted pictures to Flickr earlier today that were taken with the phone, and the images’ EXIF data pegged it as the Nokia Lumia 1020. Our original post is as follows.
With Nokia’s press conference quickly approaching, new details have surfaced about the company’s upcoming smartphone that’s said to sport a 41-megapixel camera. The handset, codenamed “EOS”, was originally reported to launch as the Lumia 1020. The information was initially provided from reputable Twitter user @evleaks, but now the well-known tipster has returned to stating that the purported handset will sport a new name.
According to a recent tweet from @evleaks, Nokia’s 41-megapixel handset will now release as the Lumia 909. The new name makes sense, considering the Lumia 909 will be the successor to Nokia’s previous 41-megapixel smartphone, the Nokia 808 PureView.
The Lumia 909 will reportedly offer a 4.5-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, while previously leaked images also revealed that the handset will be heading to AT&T. More details about the phone will likely be provided when Nokia officially announces it at the company’s press conference in New York City on July 11.
