    I suspect EOS is an internal name.

    It sorta looks more awkward than my 808 to be honest. The weight of the 808 I find is a good thing and helps steady the hands, this looks rather slim.

    Be interesting to see what differences the camera has, if any. Having XX(20?) MP stamped on

    They have it in classes 9,16,18.

    I don't know what Nokia are thinking.... Surely you would need this to be in class 9? I mean maybe they expect it to be a telephone so OK for use. Either way, I am sure some lawyers are getting ready, part of me wonders if they are doing it for the publicity. Canon having probably the largest brand budget of any camera firm, crushing nokia for using their patent would guarantee press coverage. If you get dpreview and ilk to praise it highly as well (the original 808 was) then you have a very cunning marketing strategy.

    I don't see EOS on any of those photos. Just an internal project name surely?

    Re: News - Many photos of new Nokia EOS 41MP smartphone leak

    Either way it worked for me, I register "EOS" as a high end DSLR *camera* so figured this phone must be on par with a DSLR camera to have EOS in the marketing. I had forgotten eos is a brand/name from canon cameras.

    Ugly device, like the 32GB memory, but don't like the lack of expansion. And "EOS"? - not likely to appeal to me (or as other's have pointed out - Canon).

    I'll pass

    If faced with a choice of two phones, otherwise equally matched and similarly priced except that one has a very much better camera then which one would you buy?

    IMHO more people would be persuaded by a good camera than HTC's Beats Audio fluff and Samsungs's daft life companion gimmicks.

    Hmm that is a pretty unsightly gadget. I really like Nokia's designs of late but that growth on the back of it is just too much.

    Those huge lumps on the front of cameras must be why nobody ever bought them then.

    Sure it looks like a boil, but if its even just as good as the 808 camera, I'll happily carry it.

    I think Nokia made a mistake with the 920, they made it big enough to house the camera de-bouncing stuff, but didn't draw the consumers attention to what was the size and mass for. Plenty of reviewers complained that the 820 was soo much lighter.

    By having it really obvious, it becomes a reminder, look how awesome and powerful this big thing must be.

    That's not a camera though, is it? Its a phone. And as a phone it is my opinion that it's not aesthetically pleasing. But what do I know?

    Well what I know is customers expect bulges on the front of cameras and, as it falls within their expectations, they will have a tolerance level for these unsightly protrusions.
    They have generally come to expect phones, on the other hand, to be sleek and slim and will therefore have less tolerance for the aforementioned protrusions and might even see them as, shock horror, ugly.

    But again, what do I know? Perhaps this will alter peoples expectations and change attitudes as to what makes a beautiful phone. We can only hope eh?

    Nah, it's the huge lumps holding those cameras that put me off.

    But the point is if customers are happy with much larger lumps on the front of cameras might they also be even more happy with a reasonably small lump on a phone which has a really great camera. As you say, if you value the feature you'll be more tolerant of the forms necessary to implement it - otherwise everybody would value form alone and nobody would buy point and shoot cameras because they are't as sleek as phones with cameras.

    Or get rid of most of the bump and make the phone thicker to fit a much larger battery
