Possible prototype Nokia Lumia 950 image emerges
Last summer, a leak over Nokia’s Remote Devices Access (RDA) program revealed a number of devices that were then in the works.

Among those devices we saw reference to the impressive Lumia 920, the current flagship making waves around the world. We also learned of a references to a Lumia 950 and Lumia 1001. While rumors of a Lumia 1000 series device have been floating around, we still know very little overall.

However, the guys at WPCentral were offered a tip by way of a picture of an alleged Lumia 950 prototype. While the picture appears solid, there are some caveats. First, the source is not well known, and the way the home button appears to be a sticker rather than a physical button. That has been see on previous prototypes though.

Spec-wise, one of the priorities with the next generation of Lumias is battery efficiency. The screen is said to be 1280x768 as a part of that goal.  The camera, while not a 41MP PureView sensor, will be an improved component over the current line-up, featuring “lossless zoom,” oversampling, better low-light performance and a xenon flash.

The Lumia 950 will debut as part of a “back to roots” campaign, akin to the Nokia N95-era. We are certain that if this device makes it to market, it will feature the various colors that Nokia has made a cornerstone.

What do you think? Is this the real deal of things to come?

Could be. But I was expecting an L940 (successor in the lineage - L900 -> L920).

I see nothing wrong with repeating the comment if he/she won't stop trolling.
Your comment, on the other hand was entirely useless.

Nokia never uses the digit 4 in their phone's model names. I already knew the next successor will be either number 930 or 950 even before this rumor came up. There wont be a 940.

To be precise, after they abandoned the 4-digit naming; those old phones 10 years ago do have the number 4, Nokia 6234, 5140i, 6124 classic etc.

it'd be neat if it lit up and each of the windows colors corresponded to a specific notification

Awesome!! I know button is not a big deal, but the physical home button kinda reminds me of the Samsung Ativ S. But still, I'm excited!

This phone remind me of Omnia W and Omnia 7. But i don't think this going to be a new flagship, kind of small and not so premium.

Yup, I agree, this is just a successor of the Lumia 920.

It looks like one of those nameless WP models Microsoft uses in their presentations. I have a strong feeling it's fake.

Also, I wish Nokia would slow down a little on their naming scheme if their next flagship will be called 950. They would soon run out of numbers and will have to abandon this naming scheme, making phones with three-digit names feel obsolete pretty quickly. At most, their next generation of Lumias should be called 930, 830, 730, 630, and 530.

Just a prototype, they aren't about the design but about testing the hardware.

not 41 mp but oversampling?, how many mp then, must be over 20 mp to do a good oversampling

posted on 04 Apr 2013, 01:15

37. raunak (Posts: 502; Member since: 12 Oct 2011)


Maybe 21. I heard somewhere that 21MP is the limit for WP8 (for now).
