We’ve received the following tip from a source we’ll refer to as anonymous. Take this information with a pinch of salt.
You may have heard the mentions of a Mini N9 every now and again, perhaps either when the news of Meltemi arose or later perhaps as you saw the new Asha’s with a very MeeGo-Harmattan esque swipe.
We’re told below that the new Asha’s are evolving towards becoming more N9-like. That’s no surprise really since we’ve been told plenty of times by Nokia that they’re taking a lot from the N9 and putting them towards future products. Now remember back during MWC when the design language for the new Asha series was leaked?
I have seen new Nokia Asha phone which was leaked a few weeks ago around MWC event.
The phone design looks beautiful and you can say it’s new Nokia N9 Mini version.
New features are as following:
Phone has 3 different screen.
1) Menu Screen
2) Notification Screen.
3) Application screen.
You can switch to different screen with swipe gesture. And it’s not like previous Asha phones, it’s real swipe like we have seen in N9
1) Single hardware button at front.
2) User Interface is inspired from N9 in all apps. (like clock, calendar, settings etc.)
3) Screen resolution is 240×320
4) Various controls for Touch Screen Brightness, Double Tap to Unlock.
5) In notification screen you can see notifications from various apps from like facebook, twitter etc.
6) Dual SIM, 3G, Wifi etc.
Phone runs so smoothly and fast and also play animations and transitions like we have seen in Lumia Range.
The sad thing is that the phone still do not run multiple apps
