Nokia leaks handset on own website

Finnish phone makers Nokia have leaked their upcoming X5-01 handset on their own Ovi application store, weeks away from their annual Nokia World symposium when it's reportedly due to be announced.

The Nokia X5-01 has appeared on the Ovi store website, which is their own online repository for their Symbain OS apps. The handset only appears upon selecting which particular phone the user owns, when downloading an application from Nokia's store.ovi.com.

The mobile phone has a square chassis in much the same way as the Motorola Flipout, where the X5-01 is rumoured to have a slide-out Qwerty keyboard with a 2.4-inch display and runs Symbian OS 9.3 Series 60 - with the image confirming those exact hardware specifications.

This latest leak by Nokia comes only a week after their upcoming flagships N8 mobile shipping date was outted by a phone reseller, where we doubt this will be the last leak as their London event draws ever closer.

We have just discovered Nokia is to have a bloggers event in London later on this week, with even more rumours speculating they will be unveiling another handset before their larger event in September - we'll keep you posted as to what is unveiled, if anything.
