Lumia Qwerty-touch device with Camera bump revealed in a Nokia design patent.

Nokia seems all set to bring a Qwerty Lumia running on WP8 soon, if a patented design by Nokia is some indication. The patent is dated May 2012, and on comparison with Qwerty Nokia E6 many differences can be seen. It looks wider, seems to have bigger touch screen and many would happy to know that it has a big Camera bump, which means it may carry a big 12 MP + sensor as E6 has a 8 MP sensor.

On comparing the back side of the patented design with E6, it again looks wider but rest of the design looks similar. Camera placement is same but the grill besides the Camera looks smaller in the sketch.

On comparing top part of the patented device with E6 some differences are seen. The sketched device seems to have extra jack for something may be a “video out” feature. Also Power button seen in E6 is missing in the sketched design.

We have heard Nokia’s plan to bring a Qwerty Lumia sometime in future,  targeted to Business users for Sprint in USA and in other parts of world as well. So, may be we are looking at a wider, bigger screen Touch-Qwerty device with a 12 MP+ Camera sensor and running on Windows Phone 8 OS.

    Personally I don´t like the Blackberry style. So this phone would not be for me. A horizontal slider has the advantage of a bigger screen. This E6 style has a small screen by default and even smaller if you use the software keyboard. And all the time the hardware keyboard is in the way even if you don´t need it.
    This phone is dumb. I don´t get Nokia, they simply need to take the E7 and refurbish it so it fits for Windows Phone specs. This would do.

    • But considering business users, Qwerty seems to be one of the must have devices for any manufacturer.
