Did Pictures of Nokia’s Newest Flagship Phone Just Leak?


In four days, Nokia (NYSE:NOK) will have its New York press event where it is expected to showcase its new flagship Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows phone. However, it appears that pictures of the new phone have already leaked via gadget leaker Evleaks.

The most interesting feature of the yet unveiled phone is the camera, which will likely house a 41-megapixel rear camera sensor made from the Symbian Belle-powered 808 PureView. The images confirm the rumored physical features of the phone — specifically, the rear size of the phone — and it was also later revealed that the model may be named the Lumia 909 rather than the Lumia 1020 as it had been commonly tagged.

If the camera aboard the newest Nokia phone is anything like the 808 PureView, camera enthusiasts will have a lot to be excited about. The 808 PureView features a Carl Zeiss lens and is capable of recording video in 1080p. With a 41-megapixel sensor, it’s possible to zoom up to 3x without taking any hit in image quality.
