Still remember the leaked developer video which featured a still unannounced Nokia Windows Phone? Well, it now seems that this device was the Nokia Lumia 601, and not the Nokia Lumia 900 we were hoping it to be. The image above is courtesy of Pocketnow. They have leaked an immense amount of Nokia phones in the past, so I’d say this is legitimate.
The Nokia Lumia 601 is obviously running Windows Phone. The camera module however is a bit special on this one. It resembles the one we’ve seen on the Nokia C7-00. IF this is the same module, then we’re looking at the first Windows Phone smartphone with an EDoF camera. This means that auto focus is out of the question, and we’ll have a fixed focus camera instead.
Previously the hardware requirements of Windows Phone have not made hardware like this possible. The recent change in the hardware requirements changed this, and we’ll even see devices without a camera in the future.
Nokia is probably targeting a lower price point with the Lumia 601. The new leaks would suggest a release at CES or MWC. Stay tuned for more information on this!
