Could this be the Nokia Arrow Windows Phone?

Rumored Nokia Arrow

A rather blurry image has surfaced that some believe is the back cover of the Nokia Arrow. The back cover does slightly resemble the patent drawings we ran across earlier but there's enough variations to have us scratching our head.

For instance, the photo has the camera and flash above and below, while the patent drawing has the two side by side. The rounded corners seem to match though.

There's still a lot of unknowns surround the Nokia Arrow and hopefully everything will come into focus next week at Nokia's New York event.

Curious though... if this holds true what would you think if the Arrow was a yellow Nokia Windows Phone?

I dig it...doubt it's test hardware.

andrew120 says:

Not yellow. Please. Give me the cyan!
Nokia, please don't do it like Samsung which made Focus S just white.

rhodri22 says:

Agreed. Yellow would be a nice addition to the other colours.

Jf.Vigor says:

It looks bulky...
Pure view anyone?

EAA575 says:

I just realized that Nokia doesn't have "Windows Phone" on the back of their devices.

mjfadaway says:

Wow I never realized that either.

Bouncin Back says:

Which is why I'm not getting one

WinPhanKyle says:

I don't like it. The rounded feature looks way too much like the iPhone 3/3g. Ugly in my opinion.

nizzon says:

Agreed. :(
Looks incredibly boring.

Jf.Vigor says:

Oh come on. Blurry pic from the back. You can't tell

nizzon says:

What? The back looks incredibly boring, I can tell.
Its not like it will go square if you turn it around.

Shantek says:

How can the shape of a back case look boring? At least wait to see the actual phone

ScubaNitrox says:

I agree, plus you know that Apple lawyers are probably waiting for this so they can have someone else to sue.  They should just push out a Lumia 900 WP8 phone.  I love the design and even Apple has used it in court to show that it doesn't resemble an iPhone.

kiddori says:

Damnit, no don't do it. That looks like a f*ckin Samsung. I'm not having it. Give us something unique with a PureView sensor.

better than a banana hammock

CJ Thunder says:

Surprised it took so long for thus come up. Was hilarious in the podcast.

Jannik says:

Yeah man! btw: I was the one that said it looked like a banana :P

I think it might be the 710 and a 610 mixed together 719

I hope not iPhone 3g s shape

NIST says:

Haahaa that's what Tmo is getting. Haahaa

RaRa85 says:

Lol don't jinx us.

namikral says:

A shape can either be roun or square. Every curved edge phone does not look like 3gs and I think this phone looks nice

TPM50 says:

Looks like a lawsuit.

fiveodano says:

I use my Windows phone for business, I will not be using a yellow phone. I like what we saw yesterday, this looks dated and way too yellow, just a rumor though, I don't think we will ever see this. Having said that, if it had a PureView camera you could put pink polka dots all over it and I would wait in line to get one. The pictures I've seen from that camera look like they we're taken on an SLR, just amazing.
Is that a Nokia in your pocket or are you just happy to see me

captainqtp says:

My company colors are yellow and green, so I can get away with a yellow phone. Not only that, I like yellow!

Neusyn says:

I wonder if that's the Verizon variant?

OMG55 says:

your probably right on, the like the little boring looking phone so it will detract consumers from buying windows phones and continue to purchase the phone they have the most invested in: Android & Apple....which it sucks that a carrier would deliberately stock phones that aren't meeting the demands of their customer base (If consumer are asking for a highend windows phone, they should give it to them)

Shantek says:

I think more colours is a good thing. I would dig a 900 in yellow. As long as they give a variety of colors, people can't complain.

Well, there's no way in hell I would buy THIS phone -- style or color. As others have stated, it looks more like an iPhone 3G, and while I'm sure many would appreciate yellow as a color option, it's hideous in my opinion. Although in fairness, Cyan is the only non-black color option I currently like... I prefer deeper, bolder colors.

danzinho16 says:

Let's not forget Nokia always has more color options to offer. 

tissotti says:

The stupidity makes my head hurt sometimes.
So you think yellow is the only coilor. It could be there wont even be yellow version just like so many other prototype colors.

danzinho16 says:

Y'all judging this phone because of blurry picture? And this is just the back of the phone. Chill .. let's wait for the actual phone to come out first.

lubbalots says:

Plastic Nokia vs Aluminum Samsung...

tissotti says:

Low end and high end phoen compared?
Though i doubt it will be hard beating Samsung on design thinking the super boring Asian slap look that has been Samsung's thing since 2004. 

Bouncin Back says:

Jaja the Nokia models are going to be disappointing, what yall get for trashing HTC and Samsung articles

I don't believe so. I think this particular image is very much like the 710 design style... and it's not at all like the 800 or 900 styles. I don't think you can judge an entire launch by one design. Even more, everyone is entitled to their opinions on designs... this is why so many designs exist. If we were all looking for a single design, we'd be Apple fans. :)

tissotti says:

Wow we actually have Samsung trolls.
Never knew you guys existed thinking the monotone Samsung looks.

Lx23 says:

We'll never see the end of the stupid comments about Apple copy cats. I mean how else do you design a touch screen smartphone? The edges can only be sharp or rounded. Those are the only 2 options right now... Anyways, getting back to this phone. I hope it has a polycarbonate unibody, i hope they offer it in red, I hope it has the amazing feel of the L800, Dual core, Micro SD slot, amazing screen and 1 GB Ram. That would really be nice. 

mans550 says:

Looks like it the phone will have full changeable covers ;-)

OMG55 says:

If this is what their bringing to the table, it's a big step back from the lumia 800/900 and I won't be buying that....The Samsung device is looking gorgeous in the latest close-ups that were post here on WPCentral (They look way better than the first pics). Nokia designer surely know better than following the lumias up with this....right?????

Looks like an upgrade of the 710. Maybe this is the one metro pcs is getting.

Cellus13 says:

Hopefully its just a weird looking case. Nokia makes better looking stuff so I doubt it.

wpjoe says:

It's a yellow 3GS. No thanks.

How convenient, a blurry picture! Someone is just trying re-spin the rumour mill.

BKsInBarre says:

Looks like the Lumia 610 & 710

db4williams says:

Yellow has got to be the worst color ever...
