Summary:Nokia is holding a July 11 event in New York City, which might be the launch party for its Lumia EOS phone with a 41-megapixel camera.

Nokia is planning a five-hour event to show off undisclosed new phones and technologies in mid-July in New York City.

On July 11, the company is holding a five-hour event for press, analysts and other invited guests, according to the invitation mailed out today, June 13.

The invitation doesn't include any product details beyond a mention of "Zoom. Reinvented." Many Microsoft watchers are figuring that this event could be the launch of the Nokia Lumia EOS phone, which is expected to include a 41-megapixel PureView camera technology.

The EOS phone is expected to come preloaded with the Windows Phone 8 GDR2 operating system & with Lumia-specific updates, codenamed "Amber."

Given the July 11 event is five hours long, I wonder if Nokia also will use the day as a launch pad for the T-Mobile version of the Lumia 925 — its newer, lighter/less bulky aluminum-body phone which went on sale this week in the UK.

In other related news, Nokia may be ceasing shipments of its Symbian phones this summer, according to The Financial Times.
