Rumor: Pics of the New Nokia Asha Devices


asha 509

Here is a few pictures from @evleaks on what the new Asha devices are suppose to look like.  If  true they would look like a smaller Nokia Lumia 820, mashed with an modern Asha device, mashed with the MeeGo OS.  Also if this is true I will be buying an upper end Asha device when it comes out.  This is rumored to be the Asha 509 however this makes very little sense in the Nokia numbering system being that there is a Nokia Lumia 505 out there.

Specs wise not a lot information besides a 5mp camera however I did find this gem of information on My Nokia Blog.

I have seen new Nokia Asha phone which was leaked a few weeks ago around MWC event.

The phone design looks beautiful and you can say it’s new Nokia N9 Mini version.

New features are as following:

Phone has 3 different screen.

1) Menu Screen
2) Notification Screen.
3) Application screen.

You can switch to different screen with swipe gesture. And it’s not like previous Asha phones, it’s real swipe like we have seen in N9

1) Single hardware button at front.
2) User Interface is inspired from N9 in all apps. (like clock, calendar, settings etc.)
3) Screen resolution is 240×320
4) Various controls for Touch Screen Brightness, Double Tap to Unlock.
5) In notification screen you can see notifications from various apps from like facebook, twitter etc.
6) Dual SIM, 3G, Wifi etc.

Phone runs so smoothly and fast and also play animations and transitions like we have seen in Lumia Range.

I don’t see them keeping the round home button as it is too iPhoneish and the arrow will probably be the final button instead.  If these leaks turn out to be true will anyone else be joining me in purchasing one?
