Nokia, as you may already be aware is reported to bounce back with an entry into the smartphone space later this year. Numerous reports had emerged regarding the entry of Nokia in partnership with various brands including Alcatel Lucent, Foxconn etc. However very few circumstantial evidence have been unearthed.
Nevertheless it seems that leaked images of a Nokia branded prototype device has emerged which probably gives a hint at what's in store. Or does it?
The photos which recently cropped up on the web shows a mysterious Nokia branded device with a iPhone inspired rear shell. The back boasts of a rear camera equipped with LED flash and a pair of stripes which supposedly are a part of the antenna design.
However a close look at the frontal aspect of the phone will spoil the high hopes of many you who were already jumping in joy by considering it to the next smartphone which would mark a comeback for the company. Incidentally it isn't as the frontal aspect of the smartphone boasts of a large T9 keypad and small non-touch display.
So now the question arises, is Microsoft planning to launch a Nokia branded feature phone in near future? While that might be the obvious reason behind the existence of this prototype as the Redmond giant has the full legal right to use the Nokia branding in feature phones till 2024.
For those unaware the Redmond giants still use the Nokia branding in a number of feature phones including the recently launched Nokia 230 and Nokia 235 Dual SIM.
