    In the meantime, the Nokia fans have a blast from the past. The popular Twitter-based leakster @evleaks has come up with an image the Nokia N950 aka Dali. The smartphone appears to have a QWERTY slider keyboard and run on Meego OS. The phone was actually slated to be released after the Nokia N9 but it never made its way into the retail market. It was canceled by Elop as the focus back then was on the devices running on Windows Phone.

    The Nokia N950 image shows that there are no hardware buttons as those were ditched in favor of the swipe actions. Also, this phone appears to have a beautiful design making us believe that it is one of the most attractive phones to come out from Nokia's stable till date. One thing that we know is that it is pretty odd to come to a conclusion that the company will launch such a smartphone in the current trend.

    Notably, there was a video teaser of the alleged Nokia N950 that was leaked by the leakster Evan Blass long back when he was with PocketNow.
