Alleged Nokia Windows Phone 8 handsets leak in jolly colors, one might be the midrange Arrow

Alleged Nokia Windows Phone 8 handsets leak in jolly colors, one might be the midrange Arrow
UPDATE: Another alleged picture leaked, this time the person is claiming specifically that this is the Arrow, and the phone there is apparently going to be available in several colors, but looks different than the yellowish handset leaked from Hong Kong, which might be an entry level Nokia WP8, or a prototype. Check all pics in the slideshow below.

While everyone seems to be anticipating an eventual unveiling of the first Nokia Windows Phone with the stellar PureView camera technology, let's not forget that the Finns are rumored to announce more WP8 handsets across the price range.

The Nokia Phi might end up being that PureView Lumia, but we also heard rumors of a Nokia Arrow not long ago, which should be fitting squarely into the midrange department.

Now someone from the vast prairies of the Chinese microblogging services posted a teasing back pic of a yellowish handset with rounded cornersm captioning it with "Nokia WP8 new". 

If this is indeed the real deal that will be unveiled next week, Nokia is obviously committing to the jolly polycarbonate designs its Lumia range is recognizable with, which ensures passing the torch from WP7 to WP8 without perplexing the potential users. 

Let's not forget that the Phi and the Arrow are rumored to appear on AT&T, so we might be seeing the US-bound handset for the first time here. We'll be sure to let you know next week, when we are attending the big Nokia-Microsoft event Wednesday.

I wonder will Nokia equip the Pure View technology inside the phone. The camera lens looks a little small to me. The first picture looks as if there’s a possibility.

This is supposed to be their mid-range phone. I don't think they'll put PureView in it. They most definitely will put PureView in their flagship though

I hope you read the line "this is mid-range" .. Not their flagship .. It looks lot better than Samsung's mid-range phones ..

samsung ativ S design is like out-dated... looks of the old Samsung galaxy S... nokia's designs are far better than samsung...

Very very sexy colors i'll choose the RED OR YELLOW ones if it ever comes to the states. all phone manufactueres needs to make mulit color phones it will help them sell lots of phones. I'm tired of seeing only black and white phones and blue ones
