Nokia Lumia 601 picture exposed, real or fake?
Remember that cute Nokia Windows Phone handset that was spotted in a video last week? Well, it looks like the mystery is starting to unfold now, and the device in question might be known as the Nokia Lumia 601, if a recent leak is to be believed.

The guys at Pocketnow obtained the photo you see below, and say that it comes from a “pretty reliable source”. However, they also point out that the image does not appear very trustworthy, and we tend to have our doubts as well. Sure, the front side of the smartphone looks pretty good, but the back side looks more like a poor attempt at Photoshop.

On the other hand, if the Nokia Lumia 601 is real indeed, that means we are dealing with a smartphone with specs lower than those of the recently-announced Lumia 710. The source of the leak did not provide any technical details about the device, but according to the image, the 601 is to come with an 8-megapixel shooter on its back. However, the 710, which is supposed to be a tad better in terms of specs, is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera, therefore making the leak even less shaky than it is.

Whatever the truth may be, we would suggest taking the leak with a grain of salt for now. In the meantime, do not hesitate sharing your opinion with us in the comments below. Is the leaked Nokia Lumia 601 real or a fake?
