The long-rumored 41-megapixel Nokia EOS smartphone is expected to launch on July 11 at a press event held in New York, but we’ve always assumed EOS was just a code-name or placeholder for the handset, which will likely be a member of the Lumia family. Now, profilic mobile news leaker @evleaks is reporting that the device will actually be called the Nokia Lumia 1020, breaking the news on Twitter.
EOS = Nokia Lumia 1020

The EOS, now presumably called the Nokia Lumia 1020, is expected to feature a massive 41-megapixel camera, which the company teased in an invitation to next month’s event, simply stating, “41 Million Reasons.” Based on leaked EOS photos, the device will sport a noticeable hump in the back where the massive camera protrudes, though that seems fair tradeoff for high quality photos.
The Finnish smartphone maker’s upcoming flagship handset is expected to land on AT&T next month, running Windows Phone 8 and could feature a 4.5-inch OLED display with a 1280 x 768-pixel resolution.
TechnoBuffalo will report live on July 11 starting at 11:00 a.m. EST from Nokia’s event, which the smartphone maker also promises will be available live online.
