When it comes to Nokia Windows Phone devices the Nokia Lumia range of smartphones is doing rather well for the Finnish company. The latest Nokia handset is of course the Nokia Lumia 920, the first Windows Phone 8 handset from Nokia that should be officially releasing on Vodafone in the UK early next year, but what about future Nokia Lumia handsets?
Well we have three Nokia Lumia concept design handsets for our readers consideration today, devices dubbed the Nokia Lumia Play, the Nokia Lumia 950 and the Nokia Lumia 909 PureView, of course as these are concepts it doesn’t mean we will ever seem them in the mobile space, but it is interesting to see what designers can come up with.
So let’s kick things off with that Nokia Lumia Play, a device designed by Antonio Celestino, who describes the Nokia Lumia Play as an Xbox Phone, and this Windows Phone 8 device sports twin gaming pads on the back of the device that extend outwards to improve your gaming experience.
The Nokia Lumia Play would pack a HD 1139 x 640 pixel resolution touch screen along with Gorilla Glass protecting the display and sports a 10 megapixel rear facing snapper with full HD video capture along with a 5 megapixel from facing camera with 750p video functionality.
The handset would also pack the ability to interact with your Xbox 360 console, and offer both action buttons and directional pad along with a couple of shoulder buttons, and would be just 7.6mm thick with quite a few straight lines and edges, but no other specs have been mentioned.
Moving on to the Nokia Lumia 950, a concept by industrial designer Zelig Fok, that offers a both back and front curve design with both the top and bottom of the device said to be able to change colour and light up when a notification arrives and clear when notifications are off, and apparently the entire handset is wrapped in glass.
Of course the Nokia Lumia 950 would run Windows Phone 8, sporting curved Gorilla Glass protection along with a 4.5-inch 768p touch screen and feature a 21 megapixel PureView rear facing camera along with a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and wireless charging.
Lastly we have the Nokia Lumia 909 PureView smartphone designed by Karl Panase, again a Windows Phone 8 device naturally that sports a 4.8-inch 768 x 1280 pixel touch screen with both ClearBlack tech and PureMotion HD+ tech and Gorilla Glass 2 protection.
The Nokia Lumia 909 PureView would come with a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 dual core processor running the show along with an Adreno 320 graphics processor, whilst the smartphone would pack a massive 41 megapixel auto-focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics with 10x digital lossless zoom, improved low light and noise reduction, and Xenon flash.
The device would also offer 64GB of storage along with microSD expansion and 7GB of Skydrive storage, Qi wireless charging, a 2500mAh battery and all housed in an 8.5mm thick shell that weighs 180 grams.
