One of the long rumored handsets that Nokia might launch with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform on board is the Lumia 1001, still only a rumor for the time being.
Although no info on what the upcoming device would look like has emerged so far, or on whether it would indeed become a commercially available handset, enthusiasts still dream of it.
This is why designer Mkrtchyan Edgar (via MyNokiaBlog) came up with his own flavor of Lumia 1001, one that might easily become reality in the not too distant future.
Based on the Windows Phone 8 platform, the Lumia 1001 concept device sports a fast 1.6GHz application processor, along with a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack touchscreen display, capable of delivering a 1280×768 pixel resolution and protected by Gorilla Glass.
The smartphone would feature 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, while also offering the possibility to expand it through a microSD memory card slot by up to 32GB.
On the back, the phone would sport a 41-megapixel photo snapper with Xenon flash, powered by PureView technology and offering support for full HD video recording. It would be accompanied by a 1.3MP front camera for making video calls.
The specs list of this concept phone also includes a 2200mAh battery, along with HDMI, DLNA, microUSB slot, USB Mass Storage, 3.5mm Audio/Video, NFC connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi and the like.
As one would expect from a Windows Phone 8 device, Lumia 1001 would also include Internet Explorer with Bing and support for HTML5 content, along with fast access to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.
With included support for multi-core application processors and for external storage via MicroSD memory cards, Windows Phone 8 would certainly be loaded on handsets that resemble the Lumia 1001.
What remains to be seen is whether Nokia will indeed launch a Lumia handset to pack these specs and what it will actually look like.
As can be seen from the photos attached to this article, the concept device resembles the Lumia 900 and Lumia 800 smartphones, the same as Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices might.
