Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a couple of Nokia-related leaks as we get closer to the September 5 event during which the Finnish company is widely expected to announce its Windows Phone 8 lineup. And here’s another one.
What you see below is purportedly the Nokia RM-820 for AT&T. RM followed by a number is how Nokia internally designates its models, so that won’t be the phone’s name. Obviously do expect the Lumia brand to live on. And yes, this could end up being called Lumia 820, but the Finnish company could choose 910, for example, as well. We just don’t know yet.
What we do know is that the Windows logo in the center capacitive key beneath the screen is the new one used only in Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. So this is definitely going to run Microsoft’s newest mobile OS version (if it isn’t a fake, of course).
The N9/N800/N900 design is still very much present in this handset, and may be getting a little bit old. Then again, Apple’s also known to reuse its designs, and people haven’t complained too much about that.
The RM-820 seems to be considerably thinner than the Lumia 900. The screen is flat (unlike in the Lumia 800), and the charging port looks like it’s at the top of the phone.
That’s all we know for now. Keeping in mind that this could just be a figment of someone’s imagination, stay tuned for more.
Update: Looks like RM-820 is not real. Just a very realistic Photoshop rendering. You can see here how it was done.
