Images suggest Nokia working on four Windows Phone handsets

updated 11:00 am EDT, Fri May 25, 2012

Nokia Alpha, Pure Phi, Phi, PureLambda handsets coming soon?

New images of a Nokia Lumia 800 handset running on wpbench revealed a list of Greek names for what we can only assume are codenames for upcoming Windows Phone-powered Nokia handsets. Shared by the My Nokia Blog, the images came from a user running the Windows Phone 7 benchmark on his Lumia 800. The names include Nokia PureLambda, Nokia Phi, Nokia Pure Phi and Nokia Alpha.

The Nokia PureLambda was listed as running on OS 8.0.9842, which is otherwise known as Windows Phone Apollo. Last month, it was leaked in a social app, though with an earlier build number: 8.0.9662.0. The PureLambda name also suggests the Symbian-powered PureView 808's wicked 41-megapixel camera may make it to a Windows Phone 8-powered handset eventually. There were also other indications of a PureView Windows Phone handset, including a Nokia job posting.

Of course, these could turn out to be just rumors and nothing else, but time will tell.
