Even as everyone is waiting for the next Lumia flagship from Microsoft, a new Nokia prototype device has popped up on a Chinese auction site Taobao. The phone listed on the site is Nokia RM-1052 and by the looks of it, seems to be a Lumia 1020 successor.
As you can see in the image below, the words “Prototype Property of Microsoft-Mobile” and “Not for Sale” are clearly printed on the back of the device.
As per the information seen on the screen, details of the prototype Nokia RM-1052 are:
- Nokia Model: RM-1052_1000
- OS: 8.10.14090.0
- Firmware: 03024.00000.14195.26..
- Hardware Version: 0.1.0.3
- CPU Core: 4
- RAM: 1.9GB
- Storage space available: 26.3GB
- Current application uses memory: 58.3MB
- Maximum memory available to applications: 780MB
- Expansion card: none
- Display Resolution: 1920×1080
- Capacitive touch
We see that the phone has an aluminum body and a display of about 5-inch with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, and it runs Windows Phone 8.1. Its camera bump is similar to that of Lumia 1020. So the Nokia RM-1052 may have a 41MP camera just like the Lumia 1020.
There is a speculation that this prototype might be that of Microsoft’s flagship “McLaren” handset that was supposed to use the contactless zoom in/out 3D Touch technology to control the device with gestures, without touching the screen. However, Microsoft later cancelled the plans to release McLaren. There is also a possibility that this is just some other Windows Phone prototype.
