Unkown Nokia Phone Appears in Nokia Document Promising a “More Human Touch” (UPDATED)

In a document obtained by @evleaks over at phonearena an unknown Nokia (safe to assume it’s a Lumia) appeared as seen above. The phone displays a new “color” unlike the current range used in the polycarbonate Lumia designs (could it be catwalk? Anodized aluminum is sure to give off a similar sheen). In the document Nokia […]

  It was thought it might be WP8 only but WP7.8 users can also pick up the always on clock as well as the double tap to unlock feature. Well, kinda… you can simulate the effect with an app. I wonder how battery will fare with this. http://www.windowsphone.com/it-it/store/app/nokia-lockscreen/dade4c21-04df-43ff-9220-b9af6616fd05?signin=true Source: windowsblogitalia Cheers  Alexandre for the tip!
