There was bad news for Windows Phone 7.5 owners when it materialised that they won’t be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 (Apollo). Instead, they’ll get single-core-friendly Windows Phone 7.8.
However, Nokia still has some love for the lower end of the scale, as evidenced by the rumoured Nokia “Glory”.
The Glory, as it’s codenamed, has been leaked to the ladies and gents at The Verge – through the medium of words. That is to say: there ain’t no pictures at this early stage.
It’s summed up as a successor of sorts to the Nokia Lumia 610. Nokia Glory specs are tipped to include Windows Phone 7.8, 256MB of RAM, and an 800MHz processor. The only other Nokia Glory spec we have to go on is a 4in display.
Semi-interesting fact: the Nokia Lumia 610, Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 all have 3.7in displays. The Nokia Lumia 900, meanwhile, weighs in at 4.3in.
Nokia World gets underway on Wednesday, but it sounds like it’s a bit early for the Nokia Glory to appear. Instead, expect a Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 920. Possibly.
