Nokia Lumia "Juggernaut" photo leaked

Earlier this year, a list of possible Windows Phone 8 devices showed up on the Internet, including one called Juggernaut Alpha. Today, a image of what looks like a prototype Nokia Lumia phone found its way on the Internet and it might be an example of this "Juggernaut" product.

The photo, as posted on MyNokiaBlog.com, shows the massive screen on this Windows Phone 8 device, which looks like it rivals that of the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone series. The image was originally leaked by Twitter user "coolRaffy", who later posted up another image with the phone's settings. The settings show that the model name is actually "Juggernaut Semaphone" which would seem to confirm that there is, or at least was, some kind of phone with that name in the works.

There's still a lot of questions about this device. Is this an active project by Nokia, or simply a prototype model for something that the company worked on for a while and then decided not to move forward with? If they did decide to dump it, what was the reason? We suspect that with the success of the Galaxy Note series, more smartphone makers are thinking seriously of making devices with much larger screens for 2013.
