What phone recorded this video? Nokia N9?

Marrat noticed something in the reflection from the N900’s screen in the Qt Quick 3D video.

Pause the video at 0:49 and see what the N900′s screen is reflecting… Recognize the shape? ;-)

What phone is recording that video above? It’s got N8 like tapering edges alright.

The LED is on, and you can see two LED. Kinda reddish though that might be tinting. Or like Dual LED in say, N900 or E7 when the white LED is off (Maemo folks had no option, we never got video recording light did we?)

The N8 has a tiny little RED LED and Xenon so it can’t be that.

The E7 has vertical LED and this is shot in landscape

The X7 possibly. But that has EDOF. The video is quite in focus for macro. Plus the LED are really close to the edge on N900 reflection. Almost in the middle for X7. (Not to mention the tapered edges  are less curvy)

The only other Nokia phone we know with such tapering edges:

This is somewhat closer to the edge and its dual LED and its horizontally placed.


It could be something else completely. But it oddly fits the shape, no?

Might just be an internal handset. The devs have said they’ve had MeeGo handsets to play about with for a while already.

update: hulkkii has this to add:

“Seems like they look the same..”
