Yet another Nokia Windows Phone revealed via design patent ahead of Mobile World Congress 2013

By damaster | Posted February 7, 2013 22 comments

NokiaNokia has a tendency of patenting their mobile phone designs before they were officially revealed. Last year we saw the design patent for the Nokia Lumia 920 (or Nokia “Phi” as it was called back then) just before it was announced, and two other design patents were revealed by LiveSide that has yet to be released. Today, we noticed that Nokia was granted another design patent (D675,587) for one of their Windows Phone devices – and like the other two, we have actually seen the concept images of this device before. Check it out below:

Nokia Device Design - US Patent D675587

The design patent was actually filed back in December 2011, but concept images of the device were leaked four months before in August 2011, even before the first Nokia Windows Phone (the Lumia 800) was announced. You can check out the render below:

As you can see by comparing the design patent against the renders above, the shape of the device, the curvatures of the back, as well as the location of the speaker and camera module all seems to be lining up, proving that they are one and the same. It will be really interesting to see if this device, along with the other two yet-to-be-released design patents, will actually come to fruition and become one of the many rumored devices to be announced at Mobile World Congress 2013.

What do you think about this look of this phone? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    if this is the final design, I can say its not going to be the Next Lumia. see the Micro Usb slot. its on top. bt again, If Nokia change the design a bit, then it could be possible. Maybe, a L720!

      This probably isn’t the final design, given it was submitted all the way back in 2011 (way before they decided to place all micro USB slots at the bottom center). But Nokia definitely can change things around a little bit. I remember seeing a Lumia 710 patent previously but with capacitive buttons at the front – the final design has them as physical buttons.

    Naw…look at the old Win logo. Didn’t they update that?

      The concept render came in 2011, as mentioned in the article. But there’s nothing stopping Nokia to use the design for a WP8 device. Just change the logo.

    I want to start reading about the rumored aluminum body phone Nokia supposedly has in the works… :) I’m willing to pass on the 920 if something like that is announced at MWC (I have the 900 right now).

    Connecting the rumors…design appears to be for the 41mp PureView camera technology. The bulge at the back is probably to accommodate the camera.
