Leaked: Nokia N85, Nokia N79 and Nokia 5800 Tube XpressMedia in the wild photos!
We haven’t been hearing much from Nokia in the past few weeks, but that shouldn’t suggest that they are not busy in their labs working on new Nseries prototypes to be released in the not so distant future.
And while we are still waiting for the official rollout of devices that have been announced several months ago, as well as a couple of handsets that have been leaked through the Internet, here is proof of more upcoming Nokia handsets: the Nokia N79, Nokia N85, and Nokia 5800 XpressMedia Tube.
The Nokia N79 appears to be another Nseries to use an unassuming candy bar form factor. In this photo it is seen in two color variants, with a regular numeric keypad for input, front-facing camera and large display (possibly 2.4-inches).
Then we have the Nokia N85, which we first saw in the wild in a previous post, boasting the same dual-slide form factor as the Nokia N95 and Nokia N96. The back side shows us a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with lens cover and a built-in Xenon flash. It looks like it will be available in Cocoa Brown and White.
Lastly, the rumored Nokia touchscreen called the Nokia 5800 XpressMedia, or simply the “Tube,” is seen here with a form factor similar to that of the iPod Touch/iPhone. The photos shows it side by side with a stylus, which could be potential bad news for Nokia in this increasingly finger-based touchscreen crazy world.
As of this time’s writing, none of these devices have been announced by Nokia, and in fact, none of these even have names yet. But for the sake of Nseries and all of its faithful, Nokia should put the pedal to the metal and release these phones as early as possible. Better while everybody still remembers them.
