Confirmed: Nokia Phi is Nokia Lumia 800 Successor (with Photo)

Nokia DogPhone

 

Remember the WP8 Prototype Joe Belfiore used to demo WP8 at the WP Summit? It turns out that is the Nokia DogPhone that has been popping up on WpBench, and it is what it is… just a prototype!

 

But that’s not the biggest news I bring to you this sunny morning.

I can confirm to you that the Nokia Phi (note: “Nokia Phi” is a codename, just like Nokia Ace = Lumia900) is the Lumia 800 successor. The success of the design of the N9/Lumia 900 impressed Stephen Elop so much so that he is not letting it go just yet.

 

Here is a detailed description of the Nokia Phi:

 

  • It has the same curved screen but bigger screen size (cannot confirm if it will be bigger than the Lumia 900’s 4.3inch or the same) hence it will be thicker and far heavier than the Lumia 800.
  • It has the same form factor, that is, polycarbonate unibody with irreplaceable battery (just like the Lumia800)
  • No physical buttons on the front
  • 4 physical buttons on the right side: up/down vol keys, power button and camera
  • It will run on a Qualcomm Dual Core CPU (First Nokia Dual Core WP8 phone)
  • It will have external SD card slot
  • NFC chip on board.
  • LTE enabled

Unfortunately, I cannot show you a picture, though my source promised to give me one before it is officially unveiled at Nokia World event in Finland, The Nokia Phi will be released alongside two other Nokia WP8 devices

 

They did however, confirm the Nokia Phi will be available starting from the last week of October

 

 

[UPDATE]  The guys at WPDang seem to have already beaten me to the punch and released a photo of the Nokia Phi,

      “If” it is released with Pureview, it won’t be the Pureview that exists in the 808…
      It’ll be a far more simplistic version, the earliest we can expect full-blown Pureview is Q2 2013.

    Yes…I love this  “external SD card slot” now if it also said “Pure View 41mp camera” I would just send my Credit card number to Nokia right now!

    No physical buttons on the front? Do you mean capacitive buttons or no buttons at all?

    • Muhammad Waleed Malik

      August 7, 2012 at 1:23 pm

      I would love to have no buttons at all.

      • jalyst

        August 7, 2012 at 1:26 pm

        Yeah but everything we’ve seen about WP8 suggests that buttons are still an integral part of it’s UX/UI paradigm.
        So if there’s no capacitive buttons on the front, where are the buttons for utilising the UI going?

      • Giorgio Hans

        August 8, 2012 at 2:59 pm

        It means mechanical “buttons”.

      • jalyst

        August 8, 2012 at 9:27 pm

        Right so unlike what’s suggested in the article, it’s not a button-less design after-all!?

        *update*
        It isnt a button-less design anyway, look at the pic, clearly capacitive buttons are still needed/used on the front.

    Man can’t wait for this phone. Just hope the screen is 720p. I also hope they release it before the new iphone, but we all know that is not probable. Hey hope is good. Lol
