Mystery smartphone could be continuity error
A television advertisement in the Netherlands may have accidentally shown an unreleased Nokia smartphone. The ad for Dutch carrier KPN Mobiel shows a number of phones being used by actors, with one appearing to have a different case design compared to others in the Nokia Lumia range, though this could be a continuity error rather than a new release.
The advert in question initially shows a yellow handset as having rounded corners and a headphone jack, according to My Nokia Blog, a similar design to the Lumia 822, though the front of the device is not shown. A later shot shows a device with a rectangular face and sharper corners similar to the Nokia 920, though the back does curve around. While this could be caused through slightly different camera angles, it could also be a production issue with the phones being switched between scenes.
If it is indeed a new device and not a continuity error, Nokia could end up launching it at Mobile World Congress later this month.
