Nokia Sabre smiles in another leaked photo. It won’t have a front-facing camera
Yesterday we showed you what was purportedly the first photo capturing the Nokia Sabre. The Nokia Sabre is a Windows Phone Mango device that will almost certainly be officially announced during Nokia World next week. It won’t be the highest-end Nokia Windows Phone, but a midranger, and, according to yesterday’s leak, should cost about €300-350.
That picture from yesterday had one big disadvantage. You simply couldn’t see the three standard WP keys (Back, Windows, and Search) underneath the touchscreen. The person who leaked that image claimed that the culprit was the camera flash of the Nokia N9 which was used to shoot the photo.
But fret not, for today we have a new leaked image of the Nokia Sabre. This time, we can see… two of the three WP-specific keys under the screen. For some strange reason, someone is holding a finger on top of the Windows key. Could all of these efforts not to show us the key(s) mean that these photos are fake? Maybe. But one way or the other, we’ll find out next week. So hold on tight until then.
One thing that we can discern from this image is that the Nokia Sabre will not come with a secondary front-facing camera, since the Mango camera interface simply doesn’t have the option to toggle the camera. You can also see only two roundish cutouts near the earpiece, which are probably for the proximity sensor and the light sensor. So, as we said before, this won’t be a high-end device, but a more affordable offering for those not interested in all the bells and whistles of modern hardware. Which isn’t to say it won’t be plenty capable.
