The Lumia That Never Was; The Lumia 719C

The 719C looks a lot like a mix between the Lumia 610 (which I had blessedly forgotten existed for a while) and the 710; however it does remind me of the first Nokia Windows Phone concepts and mock-ups we saw as well:




From the naming it’s probably safe to assume that the 719c was headed to China, to help give more options for users there; as the original Lumias were said to be a huge hit in the country, but alas that obviously never happened. Regardless it’s still nice to see some of the phone’s Nokia had in their pipelines once upon a time.
