Nokia Lumia 601 mobile phone leaks

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has had another Windows Phone 7 handset leaked in the Lumia 601, with a possible smaller screen than currently seen in their announced range.

Images of this handset have been published on the phone news website, 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

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.
