Nokia PureLamda running WP 8.0 pops up on WP Bench app
| by Roydon Cerejo |
MyNokiaBlog has come across an interesting find, thanks to user ‘Stipan’, who stumbled upon a list of possible future Nokia Windows Phone devices in the WP Bench app. While benchmarking the Lumia 800, he came across names of the possible unreleased WP7 devices, called PurePhi, Phi, Alpha and PureLamda. These could very well be codenames for future Nokia handsets based on Windows Phone OS. Out of the four names, the one that really stands out is the PureLamda, which according to the app, seems to be running on an OS version 8.0.9842 or translated WP 8.0 Apollo. In the same way the Transformer Prime popped up in AnTuTu a few months back, this could very well be some future device that Nokia is testing currently.
New phones coming soon
If we were to read between the lines, these phones aren’t based on WP7, so technically Nokia is still right in what they said. They never said anything about not launching a WP 8.0-based PureView phone. We still don’t have any other details on Apollo, but at least we know now that it’s out there and it seems like Nokia will be among the first to have Apollo-ready handsets when Microsoft decides to announce it. The question that’s still on people’s minds is that whether or not existing WP7 devices will be fully upgradable to Apollo? What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below.
