Nokia Lumia 820 prototype images surface

Just hours after the first device renders of the Nokia Lumia 820 leak, we're now getting some more clear-cut photographs of a supposed prototype Lumia 820 in the wild. When you take a look at some of the device photographs below, you'll notice that it's not entirely the same as the renders we saw earlier, especially when it comes to the back camera area and front top bezel - but it does retain essentially the same shape.

The device is clearly running Windows Phone 8, and a build number of 8.0.09735.09 is shown. Overall it seems the Lumia 820 prototype is slimmer than the original Lumia 800 and appears more rounded. It doesn't entirely match up to the super-blurry leaked image of the Nokia Arrow (now assumed to be the Lumia 820), and the blurry image doesn't match up to the render leak, so currently there are three similar, but competing final designs for the device.

The photo that shows the build number also reveals that this device has 355 MB of RAM (512 MB total?), and a WVGA display. This fits with the idea that the Lumia 820 is the lower-spec'd brother of the Lumia 920.

Again, Nokia will confirm which of the leaked images (or perhaps none of them) is the real deal at their event on September 5th, where they'll also show off the Lumia 920/"Phi" Windows Phone 8 smartphone.

Looks wise, I think I prefer the sharp cut on the top and bottom edges of the 8/900, but this would definitely be more comfortable to hold for long periods of time, and still looks good.

The 335MB could be to also test their apps with say, 256MB (there could be some sort of hardware setting that lets them use a specific amount of RAM to test, set it to 256MB out of a physical 512MB or more and reboot etc). This makes sure their apps keep performing good for their older models with WP7.x, like the 610 that just has 256MB on it.

If I had to guess, this prototype is only rocking 335MB because Nokia wants to make sure WP8 runs buttery smooth on the bare minimum. That way they can know how much wiggle room they have before they decide on the final specs.

looks like old one but with wp8. Lol @ the pp l who brough a wp7.x (upgradeable to windows phone 7.8 HAHAHA what a cheap trick), if I were one of them I probably wouldnt buy again a nokia in my life.

I don't think you have ever seen a current 800 if you think that looks the same.

Apple releases phones that are identical designs to the previous year since they started making phones.

No, it really does not, there are quiet a few differences like more rounded on top and bottom and a flatter surface. I think I like the old design better even if this may proof to be more comfortable to hold.

Yeah, I like this better than the leaked renders.

Those renders weren't leaked, for the last time they are fan made.
