Images of this handset have been published on the phone news website pocketnow.com (opens in new tab), along with details relating to the yet-to-be unveiled mobile.
The website notes: ‘ [the picture] came from a pretty reliable source and depicts a handset seemingly leaked by Nokia itself in a developer video this past week’.
‘we're not sure what to make of this image. [as] it looks a little bit off -- not like the product renders we're used to seeing.’, adds pocketnow.com
The site went on to state - ‘If it is in fact genuine -- meaning representative of a real-world handset -- then we'd seem to be looking at a phone even lower-end, relatively, than the Lumia 710, according to Nokia's new device nomenclature.’
Finishing with: ‘Since no specs were available to accompany the image, we can't be certain that holds true here, especially with what appears to be an eight-megapixel camera aboard (the 710 offers a five-megapixel shooter).’
One Mobile Ring believes the image looks remarkably close to the Symbian Belle powered Nokia 500, which could very well be recycled to a WP7 device, just as the MeeGo N9 hardware was reused for the Lumia 800.
