A press image of this purported smartphone was leaked in late November and published by @evleaks on Twitter. While no specifications were included with the photo leak, one can see that the phone comes with a touch screen and no noticeable capacitive navigation buttons.

Does this move can Break the Deal of Nokia's devices and services division for $7.2 billion in September, Between Microsoft and Nokia? May be not!
