Patent filing reveals possible Nokia design: is this the Nokia Lumia Arrow?
In just around a week, on September 5th, Nokia is expected to announce the new Lumia handsets, all running on Windows Phone 8 and its latest patent filing might have already revealed how the rumored Nokia Lumia Arrow will look like. What you’re seeing below is a device with rounded edges, looking similar to the low-end Nokia Lumia 610, so it’s possible that it will also be a low to mid-range phone.

We’ve already seen leaks of the Nokia Lumia Phi along with a patent filing that reiterates the by now familiar design seen on devices like the Lumia 800 and 900. So chances are that this current leak is for the other phone, the Lumia Arrow.

Take a look at the sketches from the patent filing below, and stay tuned - we’ll know about the first Windows Phone 8 Lumias in just a week.

After I bought Galaxy S3 and have it for two months, I realized that every phone is like a crappy Chinese gadget compared to Nokia. In conclusion, Nokia should come back to the top of Mobile world and spread their glory all other the world. Otherwise, it would be a huge and tremendous loss for all of us.

Agree. King of Quality Build = Nokia. Moto = Crown Prince.

There's tradeoff to make a good design, can you replace Lumia 900 battery? and that old N9 design was recycled 2 times. In fact One X design is better than Lumia 900 and still lost to GS3 big time.

OneX lost to GS3 because we have to look at the overall smartphone experience. The ultimate phone in terms of design, power, and functionality is yet to come. Though I think the Razor MAXX came the closest.

Agreed. If these are future phones, they're looking like rehashes of previous models, which isn't a bad thing. The first few drawings look like an evolution of the 710/610 design language, which itself stemmed from the C7/700/701 language. The last two look like (obviously) the N9/Lumia 900/800, so good to know they're continuing these designs Notably no larger camera module... so we probably won't see large MP cameras like the 808 PureView, but perhaps the software will make its way to these next models

It would be coo to see wp8 running on a N8 looking phone or the early N9 with the qwerty keyboard, but I'm not picky any Nokia phone is amazing and its a proven fact

This probably is low/mid range WP8 phone scheduled for the next year? Perhaps Avian was close in june stating: "The WP8 product cycle gets underway in 4Q and we expect the “hype-cycle” (i.e. more leaks and blog chatter) to pick-up in 3Q. We expect WP8 to bring: native Skype, Nokia Maps with 3D navigation and traffic updates, improvements to the camera, and support for latest- generation display, multi-core processor, microSD cards, and NFC for mobile payments. We also expect the WP8 UI (we may get a look at the platform at the Windows Developer Summit on 6/20) to be very consistent with the UI on Windows 8, thus trying to create some product halo effect. We expect WP8 devices to launch in 4Q in parallel with Windows 8 and we expect a big push from MSFT and good support from carriers. We know of 2 higher-end WP8 devices from NOK for 4Q, both are slates with 4.3”-4.5” displays and dual-core QCOM chipsets with at least 1 of the phones featuring an HD display and PureView camera (unsure if its 41MP again or not). Beyond 4Q, we are aware of 2 more WP8 NOK phones for 1Q, one that is lower end (3.8” display) and one that features a 3.5” display and thin full-qwerty keyboard." The previous filing may have been the arrow (pureview) in my mind. This could be the lower end device, whereby we probably have not seen filings of the true phi (phablet?) yet.

I think with the trouncing apple got last time they were in the courtroom with Nokia they're unlikely to go after them again without really really good reason and a strong case, which I doubt will ever happen
