Nokia W10 Concept Device, What Windows Phones Might Become

We already had a look at another Nokia concept device today, the Nokia X10, and now is time to enjoy the view of yet another one, the Nokia W10, which is based on the Windows Phone operating system.

This is not the first Nokia Windows Phone concept we lay our eyes on, but seems to be by far one of the most appealing ones.

The same as Nokia X10, the new device comes from Nando Sang Putra, via My Nokia Blog, and sports similar specs as that device.

However, while the X10 would be based on the Symbian Belle OS, the W10 is powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, the same as many new devices from the Finnish handset vendor would be starting with this year.

In February, Nokia and Microsoft announced a partnership aimed at putting Windows Phone on new Nokia devices, a deal that should prove of great help in the platform's attempt to conquer the mobile market.

Some of the latest analyst forecasts suggest that the deal would be capable of sending Windows Phone on the first place on the smartphone OS market in the next few years. In 2013, Android, currently the fastest growing platform, should be left behind.

No info on the handsets that would arrive from this partnership emerged for the time being but, if they would at least resemble the Nokia W10, they would certainly be winners.

The concept phone would include a 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display capable of boasting a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, as well as a 2 GHz Quad-Core Processor inside, paired with 2 GB of RAM and a powerful GPU.

Moreover, it should sport 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64 GB of additional storage space, 4G LTE connectivity, Quad-band frequencies on board, and a Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery to power it.

Moreover, the device should include a 15-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with Carl Zeiss optics, auto focus, Dual Xenon flash, ND filter, geo-tagging, face detection, and video recording at full HD 1080p@30fps.

A 5 MP front-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics, EDoF, Xenon flash and face detection should enable video calling.

Other wished specs of Nokia W10 would include TV-out (1080p video) via HDMI with Dolby Digital Plus sound, the usual set of sensors, 3-axis Gyro included, USB port, as well as quad stereo speakers, and, of course, support for all of services that Microsoft offers to Windows Phone users.

Whether Nokia would indeed come to the market with such a high-end device is hard to tell. For the time being, it remains only a concept device, a good looking one, leaving us wanting more.
