lumia800 Nokia’s new handsets revealed ahead of announcement

With only hours to go until Nokia's big reveal, but sadly for Nokia, the last details of its upcoming handsets have leaked ahead of the launch. We already had a good idea with regards to the specifications, especially as we're looking at a pair of Windows Phone 7 handsets here (as well as one Symbian device), so Microsoft's standard hardware limitations apply, but what we didn't know was the model names and which devices were going to launch.

With only hours to go until Nokia's big reveal, but sadly for Nokia, the last details of its upcoming handsets have leaked ahead of the launch. We already had a good idea with regards to the specifications, especially as we're looking at a pair of Windows Phone 7 handsets here (as well as one Symbian device), so Microsoft's standard hardware limitations apply, but what we didn't know was the model names and which devices were going to launch.

The high-end model, previously known as Sea Ray, the Nokia N9 lookalike will be known as the Nokia Lumia 800 and although the leak doesn't confirm all the specifications, we've got a handset that measures 116.5×61.2×12.1mm and weighs in at 142g, not exactly a skinny, lightweight handset. It'll have 512MB of RAM and apparently no micro SD card slot. The processor should be a 1.4GHz single core model from Qualcomm, but as for the rest of the specs, we'll just have to wait and see.

The more affordable model, codenamed Sabre should be known as the Lumia 710 and it measures 110×62.4×12.5mm, again fairly chubby and it also looks like it has quite a thick screen bezel. The picture is a bit too blurry and low resolution to make out the rest of the specs, but we're not expecting anything really exciting here.

Nokia is also rumoured to be launching a QWERTY keypad equipped Symbian handset during Nokia World and it's been suggested it might end up being called the Nokia 303. It's tipped to be a Symbian S40 6th Edition handset and it should feature 3G and built in Wi-Fi, so good enough for anyone that doesn't need a more advanced smartphone.

We'll have to wait until 16.00 this afternoon local Singapore time (09.00 UK time), as that is when the Nokia World keynote is being held.
