EOS/Lumia 1020 “Confirmed” For The UK.



The yet to be announced, but highly anticipated Nokia Eos aka Lumia 1020 will be released on carriers in the UK according to CNet and their inside source. No specific dates or prices were mentioned in regards to the device which is almost certain to be unveiled on July 11th at Nokia’s Zoom Reinvented meeting, which is being held in New York.

It makes sense that the Eos, which has recently been dubbed the Lumia 1020, will go on sale in the UK. Nokia have brought every other Lumia device besides the 510 and some variants of the 610 to the UK at the same time as it launched in the US. Notable exceptions have been the Lumia 900, which was exclusive to AT&T in America for 6 months, and the recently launched Lumia 928.

In case you are not familiar with the Eos (Nokia’s rumored codename for the phone) it is expected to come with a 41MP camera unit the same as was seen on the Nokia 808 Pureview. Also, according to leaked photos it will come in casing made out of a single piece of polycarbonate the same as the Lumia 920. Initial specs suggest a screen size of 4.5 inches with a resolution of 768 x 1280 and come with 32GB of on board storage. It will come running Windows Phone 8, most likely GDR2 update Amber.

Just for the record, my guess on the name, maybe the Lumia 950.
