Nokia Rivendale and HTC Z4 codenames appear, could they be the next major launch?

Skipping back to Nokia’s last week Lumia 1020 event we uncovered an interesting little detail that went under our radars initially - Nokia is planning an even bigger launch for later this year on AT&T. Just now, we have the Nokia Rivendale codename leak out. Connect the dots, and this might well turn out to be the future superphone that Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop teased.

There is nothing besides that codename. Looking back at earlier leaks, there is just one yet unannounced device that we can draw a connection to - an aluminum body Lumia with the same circular hole for what should be an outstanding camera. Could the Nokia Rivendale turn out to be an aluminum-built Nokia cameraphone? That’s just one guess.

It’s not just a Nokia phone that leaked out, though. The HTC Z4 is another mysterious codename that is hard to associate with any current leaks. We know that the HTC One was codenamed the HTC M7, and the HTC One Mini carried the M4 codename. If we assume that the ‘4’ stands for mini in HTC’s vocabulary, this might be another compact device launch.

Additionally, there is the Amazon GLP70 that could be a new Kindle tablet by Amazon. The Lenovo Aupres and Lenovo Snoopy have also surfaced, but it’s hard to tell whether these are upcoming phones, tablets or who knows even a whole different form factor.

What do you associate these codenames with? We look forward to hearing your suggestions and expectations about the leaked names.

Looks like lumia 1020 with smaller camera module and body instead made of aluminium.

It's a larger Lumia 1020 to be exact, at least 5 inches of screen size, If you look back larger photos of previous leaks of this same shell, the volume, power and camera shutter keys seem to be further apart of each other, indicating a large device. As for camera,, probably it is scaled down a bit, no idea.

with the upcoming GDR3 WP update, i ll guess 1080p screen and maybe quadcore - they need to catch up the hardware train -whether you need it or not in the device itself - market just scream for it - 1080p quad and more...

And anything under 5 inch does not need 1080p, which is why im guessing this one has at least 5 inch of sreen, the phone does look pretty big to me.

The rumours point to a size of at least 5.3 inches diagonal.

I think Nokia have stopped doing Nokia World and are instead doing smaller, more personal events. The wrota bout ot on Nokia Conversations. The article is called "Nokia World gets new format and date."

I think Z4 might turn out to be a 5.4-incher. HTC's larger flagship.

Im thinking there will be Z4 and Z7 just like the M4 and M7 for One mini and One. There should be at least 2 windows phone devices from HTC.

Why would Sony be scared about this? Samsung is the one who should be scared about this. Brace yourself, Samsung!

Samsung scared of Nokia! Rotflmfao! They have released 4 highend handsets, and they are not selling well! Only Nokias midrange are selling, like Nokia which they are good at low, budget and mid series. NokiaWp8 coming back, what a joke! I have never seen anyone with Nokia devices nowadays. Nokia is dead in consumers theory. RIP NOKIA ©®™

Wait for the Q2 Results before you make those assumptions. For all we know they might be selling pretty well. Nokia never discloses the sales they have.


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Yea selling mid and low range will not make them recover. All Androids Oems are selling there highend devices very well, except Nokia. ®
