We just got a user’s manual for a purported Symbian Belle-powered device claiming to be the Nokia 803; what we didn’t get were any features or specs to go along with the document. Our immediate reaction upon seeing the rather large camera hump was, of course, that we were looking at the rumored successor to the 12-megapixel Nokia N8 — one of the greatest cameraphones ever made.
Unfortunately, the manual doesn’t go into much detail about the 803′s functionality beyond the basics, although we were able to glean the somewhat-predictable inclusion of NFC capabilities, HDMI, and DLNA. It was also made clear that this is not a finalized document, meaning that any of the information or images are subject to change before publication.
If this is indeed the next imaging flagship, Unwired View has told us to expect a 1GHz (apparently single-core) processor, 3.5-inch WVGA ClearBlack display with Gorilla Glass, and 512MB of RAM. The camera sensor is said to be even bigger than the N8′s, while the lens may feature an optical zoom.
Obviously no word on a launch or release window here (Unwired suggests a Mobile World Congress debut in February), but now that we know this handset’s model number — RM-807 — we can at least track it through the FCC and various other certification bodies.
