Nokia EOS PureView camera video leaks online

A video of the Nokia EOS PureView camera has leaked online, showcasing little else except the smartphone’s mechanical shutter.

The tightly shot Nokia EOS PureView video deliberately avoids showing any other aspects of the smartphone, but shows the camera in much greatly detail than the recent Nokia EOS PureView pictures that popped up online.

Coming courtesy of the Vizileaks YouTube channel, the video closes in on the rear camera of the smartphone and shows the lens shutter opening and closing and making focus adjustments.

Rumoured to pack a 41-megapixel Carl Zweiss image sensor in the rear with Xenon flash, the Nokia EOS PureView camera could also pack optical image stabilisation and potentially a variable aperture too.

The video and the leaked image both show the bulging camera sensor with an XX-megapixel tag on the rear as the Nokia EOS PureView is obviously still in testing.

It should be the upgrade to the Nokia 808 PureView smartphone that featured lossless zoom technology, but offer similar specs to the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 925.

Latest rumours suggest the camera-centric smartphone will pack a 1290 x 768p resolution OLED screen of unknown size. The smartphone could also sport a fairly chunky polycarbonate body, only 1mm thinner than the Nokia Lumia 920, which is already criticised for its proportions.

Packing in 32GB of storage, the Nokia EOS PureView could lack a microSD card slot, which is a rather noticeable omission for a smartphone offering such high resolution images.

According to some sources, Nokia is working on a Nokia EOS PureView app specially designed to make the most out of the smartphone’s photographic prowess and offer further camera options.

The majority of the Nokia EOS PureView specs are still unknown, including the smartphone’s processor and full screen details, but rumours suggest it will launch on July 9.
