Picture of Nokia Lumia 719 leaked, possibly to be released March 28
Nokia has been making a comeback on the mobile phone market lately. Starting in 2011, the troubled cell phone maker has been applying a new strategy that will (hopefully) help the Finnish company reach once again the heights it held several years ago. The new digital weapons, called Nokia Lumia 610, 710, 800 and 900 were unveiled in October of 2011 and have been doing pretty well but for Nokia this is not enough and apparently the company has a new ace up in the sleeve – the new Nokia Lumia 719.
The Nokia Lumia 719 is a completely new device by the Finnish communications giant and was first seen on a leaked picture in Weibo – the Chinese Twitter. Although there is no evidence that this is indeed the Lumia 719, details about this smartphone emerged last month when it was spotted at Bluetooth Special Interest Group.
The new smartphone will target the Chinese market first and is expected to be officially launched in China on March 28. The device, however, will not be limited to China only – instead it will also debut on other markets such as Asia and North and South America later this year. In China the device is likely to arrive as Nokia Lumia 719C while on other markets it will be known as Nokia Lumia 719 only.
There’s little information about the Lumia 719 specs at the moment but the new smartphone is expected to feature a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display based on Nokia’s ClearBlack technology and a 5-megapixel camera. The Lumia 719, as the name suggests, is expected to be positioned higher than the Lumia 710, but it’s unclear in what way the former will be superior to the latter.
More information will surely become available when the smartphone launches later this month.
