Bence Bogár, a designer who publishes work to a majority of websites and resources, has revealed some Nokia Windows Phone concepts on Twitter. Bogár, who works at Egy Stúdió in Hungary, states the device in the images is a Nokia Windows Phone sporting a quad-core processor and HD display. While they may well be mere concepts and ideas as to what Nokia could work with in the future, they do appear to be marmite within Windows Phone Central HQ - it's torn the team between absolute detestation to appreciation.
A conspicuous feature to this unique Nokia design is what appears to be a fingerprint scanner on top, plus the absent of the usual 3.5mm headphone jack port. Not much else is visible on the concept. No buttons or rockers can be seen on the left side of the device, though we find it hard to believe all would be present on the single side. We've also compared the look to a 1960s radio, and while it may come across as elegant and modern, we can't help but imagine the amount of dirt that could accumulate in the side grill(s).
With the recent 'Phi' patent observations, Nokia is clearly sticking to the award winning polycarbonate single body design, which is present on both the Lumia 800 and 900 Windows Phones. To take up these concepts, it would be a sizeable leap from what the manufacturer has released on the platform thus far. Though Windows Phone 8 is the next step in Microsoft's mobile path, we can't see such a design being produced in Nokia factories.
So what do you make of these Nokia Windows Phone concepts? Be sure to sound off in the comments.
