The Nokia Lumia EOS – previously codenamed Elvis and rumored to be marketed as the Zoom – is all but confirmed already, being most likely equipped with a top-notch 41 MP camera. What you might have not known about the beast is that it’s supposed to be a global device.
Yeah, you heard that right, Nokia is reportedly planning to bring the PureView goodness to the entire world. How can we be so sure? A device mysteriously codenamed RM-875 has visited the FCC not long ago and all hints point at it being the international EOS.
First off, its model number is eerily similar to another Nokia phone we’ve spotted getting FCC’s stamp of approval of late, the RM-877. And there’s almost no question the 877 is the EOS, since it has essentially the same measurements as the Lumia 925.
Second, while RM-877’s LTE bands fit nicely with those used by AT&T, the 850, 1800, 2100 and 2500 MHz frequencies supported by the RM-875 are a little too eccentric to point at a variant for a different US carrier. The bottom line – Elvis is not only alive, but has plans for a world tour.
The tour, if you’ve been living under a rock lately, is to start on July 11, when New York City will be hosting the “Zoom Reinvented” event. Can you say “thank you, thank you very much”?
