Nokia is back in the news, this time due to a possible leak. This comes after the leak of Nokia Sea Ray, the first Windows Phone handset from Nokia and also the N5 leak. After its launch of the MeeGo platform and its attempts to get back up from its falling market share, Nokia seems to be trying its hand at a variety of platforms, including windows.
A website has accessed a photo of a leaked document, which seems like Nokia’s roadmap for this year or the next. This document reveals four new Nokia handsets, apparently running on the Symbian Belle platform. Interestingly, the document also reveals that all of these four handsets will feature 1 GHz processors. It seems that Nokia is finally planning to roll out 1 GHz processors with Symbian smartphones. The newly announced Nokia N9 will also have a such a processor.
The four handsets will be called Helen, Zeta, Cindy, and Fate. It seems like the Helen is a flagship handset with 3.5″ AMOLED display, Symbian Belle, 8 MP camera, and apparently will be the successor to the Nokia C7. The Zeta will feature a slightly smaller 3.2″ AMOLED display, and Symbian Belle as mentioned in the image. This handset is said to be the thinnest smartphone in the world. However, no info is available about the camera of the device since it is not visible from the picture. The Cindy and Fate will be the mid-range handsets here with 3.2″ AMOLED displays and 5 MP cameras respectively with 1 GHz processors. The Cindy will be NFC enabled whereas the Fate will not.
These leaked models run on the Symbian Belle platform, the successor of Symbian Anna. The specs of these models can be seen in the images. Some of these models are expected to be launched as soon as Nokia Connection 2011.
There is no additional information about the phones’ release dates or prices, but we can easily assume that these will be launched by the end of the year as part of Nokia’s plan to flood the global market with Symbian smartphones until the first Windows Phone 7 devices arrive. However, if these are released too late, then we fear that it will miss the boat. Nevertheless, we hope that the struggling mobile company doesn’t miss out on this opportunity, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
