Nokia 801 (or N8-01) makes its first cameo appearance, comes with an edge-to-edge screen
The Nokia 801 seems to be the latest leak in Nokia's pipeline. The device could have been called the Nokia N8-01 in Nokia’s previous naming routine, making it the successor to the company’s current flagship, the Nokia N8. And it’s got the stylish looks to prove it with a different form factor focused around an edge-to-edge qHD screen, if we are to link this model with the rumored about N8-01. How did we find out about it? The Nokia 801 video teaser was in the list of promo videos on a Nokia 700 device left over at a booth at IFA. We wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of this being just a concept, possibly to demo NFC, which somehow made it to the Nokia 700, but there are plenty of NFC-enabled devices, which Nokia could have used for that.

The Nokia 801 seems to be running the latest version of Symbian^3, Symbian Belle, if we are to judge by the redesigned clock in the home screen. It also looks NFC-enabled, just like the overwhelming majority of recent Nokia handsets, but little is known except for that. 

Judging by the expected model number 801, it should sport an impressive camera, like an N8, but while we wait for more details, why don’t you check out its first cameo starting at the 2:20 mark in the video below and tell us what you think in the comments below.
