Video: Nokia N8 TV Grammy Spot – has unannounced, leaked Nokia X7?

I was checking out Mark’s blog and looking at the new Nokia N8 tv spot shown at the Grammy’s but I couldn’t get my head around one particular second where we supposedly see the back of the Nokia N8.

Oddly, it doesn’t look like there’s the iconic raised camera bump there. It could be a trick of the light. I mean, if you put your N8 against the light, it goes black and the bump disappears. But notice the top side of it. It’s not parallel. It curves outwards towards the back like the X7 (or even the new windows phone design concept)

The camera and the black trim are most like the X7. The only thing different is the Nokia branding is placed horizontally.

Some milliseconds in you’ll see the back is illuminated. That is NOT the Nokia N8’s back. Unless something has gone weird with the camera. The WP devices have a different design on their back (at least the ones we saw). The tapered edges is also longer. This is more X7. The one that AT&T had supposedly cancelled upon.

ok now for comparison. Too similar no?

The X7 is assymmetric on the side (or top/bottom) having curvy backs. If this is the X7, then this is the first official sighting from Nokia as a source.
