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.

why couldn't the gs2 be edge to edge? Also the review have been saying the screen on the gs2 is pixelated at least for the sprint version.

Its amazing how no one cares about Nokia/Symbian anymore to even use common sense. I've searched a fair bit regarding this so called N8-01, WHERE in Hell did the that came up with this name get his info from, all it looks like is a generic mock up device with the purpose to show the connectivity options, just like MS use for their device renders and just like NOKIA did when S60 5th was first showcased, a generic mock up. And ofcourse nokia are complete r.tards and just leave digitally rendered unannouced models on device setup to show the press and ofcourse the guy holding the device is a complete i.diot for having the ultimate scoop and just not even caring. Amazing rite, oh yea and qHD LMAO now thats the ulimate joke, really qHD now can someone tell us where the res of qHD came from? a N8-01, really now where does this info come from, does that slate look like a camera phone? are people too dumb to know it doesn't look anything like a camera concentric device... nokia's camera phones always had distinct looks. Anyway i love the N8 and am looking forword to its succeror mean while re.tards and post garbade 8 year old kids could figure out is rubbish. Not aimed at you phone arena you were just reporting (even though you should have checked too) but whoever came up with such crap is a day dreamer

If this is real device it would be an excellent successor to the N8. I only wish nokia would continue making meego/harmattan phones with specs like this instead of WP7 or WP8.

Why this is called edge to edge? It's just the same as any other (modern) phones on the market.
