Rumours: Nokia N8-01 may have 960×540 qHD display? VGA Nokia 702T, and nHD Nokia 601T/602T.

We received this screenshot above from Janimatik. I’m not exactly sure where it’s from and so whether to take any notice. Since it’s an image, I can’t pass this through a translator to have a guess what’s being discussed (anybody here understand what’s mentioned up top?)

What’s interesting here are two things. Listed in the 360×640 category is something called the Nokia Oro. Unannounced T7-00 and X7-00 are also listed, as well as something called Nokia 601T/602T. In the VGA resolution, just above unannounced Nokia E6 is the Nokia 702T.

Something a little more exciting is a new resolution category.

540×960. Still sticking with the 16:9 dimension. That’s 1.5x the pixel width and height of the previous nHD displays, 518,400 pixels. nHD has 230,400 pixels, so 288,000 extra pixels. More than double, or 125% increase. Pretty much iPhone 4 territory (960×640) but due to screen ratio cuts off 100 pixels. The jump from nHD to qHD isn’t as big as iPhone 3G only had 320×480. Then there’s screen size to consider. Will we have 3.5″ still or make the move to 4-4.3″?

That’s of course if this is all true. This might be an aftermath of April 1 stories trickling down. It would be nice if the N8-01 is a successor to the imaging prowess of the N8-00, not just a N8 with more mass memory. Google search gives me random April 1 sources saying it’s running Symbian^3, but with 1GHz processor.

We do know we are expecting some new hardware from Nokia as well as a revamped UI from Symbian. Some people may have had an advanced preview of this like the Product Manager from UK Mobile Network “Three” who said something amazing was coming to Symbian. Additional rumours point to an April 12 announcement. Is this possible? Elop has said that Nokia Products will ship closer to announcement. If true, we may have new devices on the market by May.

None of this may be real, but if it is, then it’s up to Elop to SHOW and not TALK about changes coming to Nokia.
