Rumor - New image of Nokia Windows Phone 8 'Arrow' device shows up

WP Central

We’re always a bit skeptical when on one day we get what looks like a “real” photo of an unreleased phone and the very next day we get what appears to be a mid-quality render of the same device. Call us crazy but that seems like it might be just enough time to break out some Photoshop for some fan art.

The image above is reportedly of the Nokia Arrow, one of the new Windows Phone 8 devices expected to be unveiled next week in New York. The device is supposed to be a mid-range phone, continuing the Lumia 710/800 line for Apollo.

Leaked to the site Phones Review & My Nokia Blog, anonymously, we’re not going to rate this very high as legitimate. It may be accurate if you’re looking for a computer render based off of yesterday’s photo but is it real? Seeing as it only shows the back of the device, like yesterday’s photo, we’re not feeling the legitimacy.

At the very least though, it may give you some idea of what this phone may look like—assuming Nokia and the person who made this can agree on which way the Camera bezel should go (vertical or horizontal).

Since this photo actually tells us nothing new—no specs, nothing on the front, etc.—we’re going to quietly forget this one and prepare for next week.
