Rumours: Nokia Apollo/WP8 Lumia PureView coming + 4″ Lumia Slider for Sprint.

The MS Nerd has been tweeting some Nokia related tweets regarding some future devices. These are just rumours (the most recent thing we have posted about was that FreeTimeMachine thing


A PureView Lumia Clear Black HD display with Qualcomm’s super fast S4 chip. Now you might think this was merely based on the render seen last week, but apparently not.

Very interesting #rumor: Nokia prepping flagship WP8 device for Verizon this fall with PureView camera & ClearBlack HD display on MSM8960.!/MS_nerd

PureView but NOT based on the 808’s super huge sensor, but on the N8’s sensor. We’ve been expecting a N8 Nokia WP for a while but did not expect one AFTER PureView device. That’s not to scoff about. The N8 is still regarded as the best camera phone (only to be beaten by Nokia themselves). Whilst the likes of the HTC One X and iPhone might outdo current Lumia, testing from AAS and Engadget show the N8 is still the one to beat.


It should mean that the lump is less substantial and more manageable and that it could possibly appear much sooner.

Could this be the Nokia Prodigy?

Last we heard, these Apollo phones are rumoured to be ‘incredible’ but that’s based on the info by a N9/MeeGo fan at Nokia.

Anyway, next rumour:

A landscape QWERTY slider. Hurrah. Something you guys have been asking for too. Would you like this in flat slide or a return to E7/N9/N97?

And another neat #rumor: Nokia is apparently making landscape-QWERTY slider with 4 inch WVGA screen for Sprint as well, also on the MSM8960.!/MS_nerd

This will also be 4 inches, based on S4 so very fast, but coming to Sprint.

Will it come to AT&T? Apparently this will be a carrier exclusive.

I’m hearing Nokia will continue ‘rolling thunder’ with per-carrier exclusive designs in the United States, i.e. unique phones.!/MS_nerd

Nokia World is coming this September, most likely coinciding with the Fall release of Windows 8 devices. Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Nokia’s Tablet and ‘Super Phone’? The premise of something amazing happening sounds likely but I’m too jaded not to be slightly doubtful either.

MS Nerd is not only an MS fan. He likes ICS and thinks it’s beautiful.
