This would be interesting if true though I am not at all convinced. We got an email from another John yesterday sharing information about a supposed new Lumia with a twisting camera section. I don’t know if the image above is simply meant to be a depiction as that’s a 5700. Twisty barrels would be nice, like the Nokia N90, pretty awesome for self pics.
A barrel design could allow for optical zoom (as the elements can span the width of the phone as opposed to the thickness of the device).
Apparently it might have gaming buttons.
Some images of the 5700 below:
Here’s the email that we got:
