Fresh evidence that Nokia is close to announcing its debut Windows Phone handset – or handsets, even – has emerged in leaked print ads.
Obtained by the good folk over at PocketNow, the promotional material reveals a handset dubbed the ‘Nokia 800’, which may very well be the same kit as the Sea Ray that has cropped up several times previously.
If the marketing lingo is to be trusted, which states, in full caps, “Today the sun will rise and set. The rest is up for grabs”, it could yet be renamed the ‘Sun’, as Espoo looks towards a new dawn in the booming smartphone market with Microsoft’s operating system.
Alas, not much is revealed in the way of specs, but the blurb does quite clearly hint the handset will come with an eight-megapixel camera. Past leaks and rumours suggest the Sea Ray is home to a single core 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch AMOLED display and 16GB of internal storage, too.
We’ve also heard from a reliable source that it will do away with any front-facing physical buttons, much like the N9. Although it’s worth noting the handset in the ads do feature touch-sensitive buttons.
Whatever it ends up being called, the phone looks increasingly likely to be announced at the Nokia World expo on October 26th. It’s also a dead cert to launch with the latest Mango iteration of Windows Phone on board.
Stay tuned as we bring you the latest news on developments in the weeks to come.
