Nokia 800 Lumia Windows Phone branding all but confirmed

Nokia’s 800 “Lumia” Windows Phone looks set to be unveiled tomorrow.

The final branding of the device is all but confirmed following a set of photos uploaded to photos sharing sites. The photos were uploading using a “Nokia Lumia 800″ device. The Nokia Blog spotted the photos and confirm that the device features a f/2.2 aperture, similar to the Nokia N9. The Lumia naming has cropped up before on Occasional Gamer lists. Lumia means “art from light” and could match up to Nokia’s first Windows Phone adverts that mention “today the sun will rise and set. The rest is up for grabs.” Teaser commercials for Nokia’s first Windows Phone started to air over the weekend on British national TV and also feature a number of artistic disco lights.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop is expect to unveil at least two Windows Phone devices on Wednesday. There has been a large number of leaks related to Nokia’s devices and the company appears to be readying a “Searay” device and a “Sabre” device for initial select markets. Elop will detail Nokia’s N800 Lumia Windows Phone on Wednesday morning. The N800 Lumia, know previously as Searay, is expected to be made available in black, blue and pink initially. The 800 includes a 3.7inch AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz processor and 8-megapixel rear camera. Nokia’s second Windows Phone device, known as the Sabre, is also expected to be revealed. The device is likely to be similar to the 800 but will ship with a 5MP camera and 8GB of storage to ensure it’s a low cost offering.

    • Mobile user

      Why do you need 64GB? Just get Zune Pass.

      I have a lot of music. I now have the n900 and I am at 25 GB. I don’t think all that streaming is such a good idea. And I also use Spotify as an addition to the 25 GB

    • Joe

      What can you even do with 64GB on a phone? Sure theres music, but man if you need to lug around 64GB of music with you in order to be satisfied…. I feel bad for ya.

    Oh God, please let there be ACE! Can’t use anything below 4.3″ screen, spoilt rotten bij HD7

    • Joe

      Hahahah, me too! But I still have a year on my contract so I won’t be getting this generation. Hopefully next generation has a bit more to offer too. I love the design of the 800, but the speed and functionality difference is negligable between it and my HD7. Sure it has a slightly better camera and a front facing one… but that’s it.

    On the same site they have leak of Nokia 900. Which I think is the ACE as it 4″+ screen.

    I hope if this is true, I guess they release it with a FFC. FFC is not listed in that spec screen. The best part if true, has a 64GB and 32GB models. Yeah now you are talking Nokia. The only thing needed is release in US.

      But they’ve always been talkin’!  But, they lost a sale with you, as you’ve stated over and over, so enjoy your HTC devices.

    Anybody if WP7 Mango supports NFC?
    The leaked N900 (May be ACE) has NFC listed in the spec sheet. I thought I read somewhere MS was thinking to add NFC support only next year?

    Is that the crypt where Test1ngi23 stores her blown aliases?

  • Uropoylonen

    meego N9 is best

  • Shazam

    On that Nokia N900 it seems like the system try (at the top) will always show.  I hope that is the case, i hate the show/hide business.  

  • joe

    Is the 800 coming with smaller screen?
    because N9= 3.9″ and 800=3.7″?

    • Anonymous

      N9 had no buttons and runs a 854×480 screen res.  800 drops .2″ screen for the 3 capacitive buttons and to match the WP spec of 800×480 res.
