Nokia 803 Could Be Successor To Nokia N8

A manual for the follow-up to the Nokia N8 has been leaked to Pocketnow and could well be the Nokia 803 which may be powered by the Symbian Belle OS.

The blueprint posted by the site shows a smartphone with a big bump where the camera optics lies, which would indicate that the N803 will focus on imaging like its predecessor.

Various rumours have pointed towards the N803 using a single core 1GHz system on chip, a 3.5-inch WVGA ClearBlack display with a Gorilla Glass overlay, 512MB RAM and a camera smartphone that could have a bigger sensor than the N8 with an optical zoom.

Other features that could well make their way into the N803 could be NFC, HDMI, DLNA and we dare say, microSD and microUSB.

Expect it to be launched possibly at Mobile World Congress 2012. The N8 was released in April 2010 and a decent upgrade is long overdue.

The handset - which is still available for around £300 - has a 3.5-inch 640x360 pixel AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display, 256MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, a 12-megapixel camera with AF and a Xenon flash. Also on the spec sheet is a 600MHz ARM11 processor, TV Out via HDMI, a 1200mAh battery and a USB port.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
