Image Leak: Nokia “Sea Ray” to be branded Nokia 703?

This one just came in from WMPU, who just posted a leaked image of a carrier presentation flyer showing a device said to be named Nokia 703. Take a look at the image below:

Nokia 703

This device looks just like the Nokia Sea Ray revealed by Stephen Elop back in June, which uses almost the same hardware design as the MeeGo-based Nokia N9. In fact, the existence of the Nokia 703 was recently revealed by WPCentral via the “I’m a WP7!” app statistics.  From what we can make out from the image (let us know if you can make out the tiny text!), here’s some of the details revealed in the flyer above:

Size: 112 x 60.8 x 12.3 mm, 114 g

Display: LCD 480×800 pixels, 3.7 inches

Camera: 5 MP 2552 x 1964 pixels, autofocus, 720p, 30 fps

Memory: 8 GB storage, 512 MB RAM

General: 27(?) November

The specifications, if our eyes are good enough, seems to indicate that the Nokia 703 is quite an average phone, however this phone may be targeted for the lower-end market. We understand that Nokia just recently launched the Symbian Belle-based Nokia 700 and Nokia 701, said to be the “smallest” and “brightest” smartphone in the market. Given Nokia’s new naming conventions, this places the Windows Phone-based Nokia 703 in the same category as the Nokia 700 and 701. Of course, the phone is also expected to bring features such as NFC support, and we also know that the Nokia 800 is also in the making, which may potentially be the higher-end phone from Nokia. So what do you think of the phone?

      Well, My Nokia Blog is saying that because the N9 has a 3.9″ screen (and thus the Sea Ray), it is different from the Nokia 703 with has a 3.7″ screen. However, don’t forget that the N9 has a different screen ratio, which makes it inherently different from the Sea Ray, and potentially explain the 0.2″ difference.

      However, they do make a good point with the camera. I do recall Stephen Elop saying that the Sea Ray has a 8MP Carl Zeiss camera, which makes it different from this Nokia 703 which says it only carries a 5MP camera. In addition, the Nokia 703 shown in the image above is also missing the lock-screen button on the right (below the volumn buttons), which makes it inconsistent with the Sea Ray.

      The Nokia 703 might be a phone that looks like the Sea Ray, but has lower-end specs than the actual “Sea Ray”. We still have hope with the Nokia 800 ;)

        Its not just the screen size, the power button is in a different location than the Sea Ray device that Elop demonstrated.

    Great looking device if the price is right.

    Ignoring the specs, this device looks pretty nice. It’s very minimalistic, and even the Nokia logo, at least in this shot, seems to not be in-your-face like some other phones. Personally, I’d love to see MS branch out WP for a dumbphone-based OS that just carries the basics of WP with limited apps like the Zune HD.

    I hope they are planning to release a higher-end one with a better screen. 800×480 is painful if you’re coming from an iPhone 4.

    This is not the Sea Ray. The power button is not where it was on the phone Elop demoed.
