Nokia Hardware Leak Roundup: Windows Phone 8, Symbian
Windows Phone fans are just about to get their hands on the new Lumia 900, with signs of orders already shipping-out to North American customers. With this first LTE model finally becoming a reality, we’ll soon find ourselves looking to the future for the next handset from the manufacturer. Images of a couple unreleased Nokia models have recently leaked, giving us some hints at what we can expect.
First up, we’ve got what’s supposed to be the phone that will finally bring the 808’s PureView imaging tech to Windows Phone. As such, there’s that same bulk surrounding the lens and sensor, but that’s the tradeoff you make for some really top-notch imaging capabilities.
Supposedly, this phone would feature a curved glass display, offsetting the phone’s unusual shape a bit with an ergonomic design. Even still, we’re guessing a lot of people are going to take issue with the model’s engineering. This is all assuming, of course, that this phone ever sees the light of day, and it’s not a concept design or outright fake.
Other specs revealed included a dual-core processor with Adreno 320 GPU and support for recording 1080p video. The curved glass display will supposedly measure 4.3 inches and be HD presumably 720p. As you should be able to tell from those specs, this model would arrive running Windows Phone 8 Apollo.
While there’s no way it’s going to generate as much interest as that unnamed WP8 model, another leak attempts to reveal the Nokia 306.
We’re not sure just what software this handset might run; it could as easily be Symbian Carla as it could S40. Whatever it is, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a very high-end model.
