New Nokia patent hints at a future Lumia?
posted by Maxwell R. / Oct 22, 2012, 2:52 AM
What we did not know at the time was that on the same day the video leaked, August 10, 2011, Nokia filed with the US Patent Office for the design of a handset. What did those design drawings look like? Like none other than the device depicted in the video. The patent was just granted on October 16th and the similarities between the patent drawings and the video are unmistakable.
Now the folks at Nokiapoweruser are asking if this design could spawn a new Lumia which might find its way to Verizon or T-Mobile. Maybe a version of the Lumia 9xx? The video renders look pretty classy, so whatever Nokia hammers together, should they make a move with this design, could pass for high-end if the company chooses to.
Take a look at the pictures and the video from last summer and tell us your hopes and dreams should this design make it to market.

In my opinion Nokia>Motorola>Samsung/Sony>HTC/LG>Apple If its on pure design basis my order would be Nokia>Motorola>HTC/Sony>LG/Samsung>Apple Top designs (my opinion):- Nokia N9>Motorola Razr (XT 910)>LG Crystal/LG BL 20/Sony Ericsson Aino>The above design>HTC Desire

I like the new design of this Nokia phone, but the drawings in the diagram looks a lot thinner than the one in the video. The only other problem i have with Nokia is, that it takes too long to bring their product to market, after the announcements. :/ Watchout, Apple might get mad over the rounded corners of the phone. :(

What about that drawing is unique, new or worthy of a patent?

Not bad design, but I really want to see FX800 concept to come into reality. These renders kinda look like a big Asha 311.
