Nokia may be planning to wait until late in 2011 to ship its first smartphones with Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system inside. However a new rumor claims to have the hardware specs for three of those WP7-based Nokia phones. MyNokiablog.com reports via an unnamed tipster that the hardware specs are for two previously reported on phones, the Nokia Sea Ray and the Nokia Sabre, along with a newly revealed and high end phone, the Nokia Ace.
According to the site, the Nokia SeaRay will have a 3.7 inch AMOLED touch screen, a 1.4 Ghz processor, 16 GB of storage, and an eight megapixel camera. The Nokia Saber will also have a 3.7 inch LCD display, a 1.4 Ghz processor, 8 GB of storage, and a five megapixel camera. It also says it will have an "interchangeable back cover."
However both phones pale in comparison to the hardware specs of the Nokia Ace. If these details are indeed true, it will have a big 4.3 inch touch screen, a 1.4 Ghz CPU, 8 megapixel camera with auto focus, 16 GB of storage and support for the faster LTE wireless network. The blog claims that the Nokia Ace will be sold by AT&T in the first quarter of 2012.
None of the hardware specs for the phones show that they have dual core processors, although it's possible that detail was left out. In any case, Nokia is expected to officially reveal its Windows Phone 7 devices at its Nokia World event in London on October 26.
