Over the past several months, we’ve heard rumors of a number of Nokia Lumia handsets that have yet to go official, including models like the so-called Eos with its 41-megapixel PureView camera. Today we get one more device to add to those ranks, with the release of an image purporting to display the Lumia 950, along with some accompanying tech specs.
Supposedly, the 950 would be a high-end model, with a 1280 x 768 display and a hefty 2GB of RAM – something we just don’t see on Windows Phone models. While it wouldn’t have a 41-megapixel camera, it would still have a sensor larger than the likes of which are on the 920, so we may be talking about the 13-megapixel range; the ability to preform lossless zooms, like with the 41-megapixel PureView is mentioned. It would also feature stabilization (though it’s unclear if that’s optical or not) and a real xenon flash.
The big question is whether or not any of this is real. The image doesn’t seem to have any glaring giveaways of manipulation, though it could always be a well-done render. The Windows logo doesn’t look right, but as a prototype, that might not be so odd. According to the source, the design could be part of a “getting back to roots” strategy for Nokia.
What do you think; do you like this more traditional smartphone look from Nokia?
