We've seen a number of images of Nokia's "EOS" 41-megapixel Windows Phone leak in recent days, but a new video shows the camera in a lot more detail. Originating from the Vizileaks Twitter account, the video shows the lens shutter opening and closing on Nokia's upcoming handset. An XX-megapixel moniker is shown on the rear of the device, indicating this is likely a Nokia prototype still undergoing testing. Little else is shown, but a recent blog post from Vizileaks claims the EOS has "optical focus and image stabilization" with a promise of sample photos soon.

The original PureView, with Windows Phone

Codenamed EOS, Nokia's upcoming Lumia will be the Windows Phone equivalent to the company's 808 PureView handset. Nokia is believed to be testing the device with AT&T as its US partner. Recent reports suggest the device comes equipped with a full PureView 41-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, OLED display, polycarbonate body, and 32GB of storage. Nokia is building a special Windows Phone application specifically for its camera, to provide access to additional camera options.

Nokia is rumored to be launching the device in July, with an exclusive in the US for AT&T. The Finnish smartphone maker has recently teased a "summer of announcements" during its Lumia 925 launch, with CEO Stephen Elop also hinting at a "season of new product introductions."
