Nokia Working on QWERTY Slider with 4-Inch WVGA Screen for Sprint – Report

After revealing Nokia’s plans to launch a Lumia PureView smartphone at Verizon Wireless this fall, MS Nerd leaks a new rumor, but this time it’s about a Sprint exclusive device.

The good news is that Nokia is reportedly preparing to launch a QWERTY slider at Sprint, which will feature a large 4-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display. In addition, the handset is said to be packed with Qualcomm’s latest MSM8960 chipset.

This means that the unannounced device might be equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor and an Adreno 320 graphics processing unit.

According to MS Nerd, the QWERTY slider will be exclusively launched at Sprint, so no other carrier in the country will get this one.

Apparently Nokia plans to release various carrier-bounded smartphones in the following months, all with exclusive designs to make them unique.

It’s unclear which operator will offer the best Nokia devices and which will carry the company’s entry-level handsets for the North American market.

However, rumor has it that Verizon Wireless has already teamed up with Nokia to offer its customers the latter’s flagship smartphone, a certain Lumia PureView device that is expected to hit shelves sometime this fall.

No other details on Sprint’s slider are available for the moment, but there’s a high chance that this will be powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform rather than Nokia Belle.

Moreover, this might be one of the new Windows Phone 8 (Apollo) devices that Nokia has been confirmed to release by the end of the year.

With the release of Windows Phone 8 just around the corner, we expect that, if nothing goes wrong, the Finnish company will announce these two smartphones, as well as others, during Nokia World annual event, which is set to kick off on September 25, in Helsinki, Finland.
