Nokia planning Green and Red Lumia 800?

More colors?

A new video has been spotted created by AdContentMedia featuring the Nokia Luna Bluetooth Headset. And while that headset is itself pretty darn awesome what is really eye catching are those two new colors for the Lumia 800: Red and Green.

While we've seen fuchsia/magenta/pink before and we all know cyan and black, but green and red have not been shown off before and it remains to be seen if they are actually planned or just concepts at this point. Nokia has certainly experimented with other colors as described in yesterday's article on the subject and we've heard of yellow, green and white before back in December. Of course since that December interview, the white Lumia 800 (and maybe even a white 900) have come forward.

More Colors?

We'll throw this in the "sure, why not?" camp as we know Nokia like their colors and it would make sense for them to extend those offerings if the Lumia line keeps selling well. Personally, we're pretty excited about green and would love to see that infused in some polycarbonate goodness from our Nokia friends. What do you think?

[Edit: As pointed out in comments, these could also be soft-shell cases which have nearly the same color offerings, though it would have been more efficient to advertise that fact. Still, it's plausible]

Check the video after the break and catch the new colors at about 0:40 and onward.

Nokia planning Green and Red Lumia 800?

Very interesting... and without sounding too lame, just a quick check on photoshop shows there is a little difference between the colors.

Furthermore, in that Cyan picture, the blue of the cyan looks more dull than normal. I'll put that up to a 'leak' or bad lighting, but it's just my guess.

Still if that's the case, where's the white picture? That's been announced! But red and green would be great choices yes.

Well it's the English (UK) way of spelling it. But we are rarely the nation that leaks come from, we tend to get things last :(

The (possible) new colors look very slick! Although when will phone makers realize that Purple makes a much better looking phone than Fuchsia, while being pleasing to female buyers?!? Hope the 900 has such a varied spectrum when it hits stores.

I always thought there was a red one, on my lumia 800 box that I received from the Nokia amazing collective, it appears like a red one

Remember that guy who makes fabulous wp7 video on YouTube?? He was hired by msft to do this videos for Nokia?? Anyone here remember his name??

Just a shame you can't have a black theme since they have a theme that matches all the other cases

I remember my first nokia back in the 90's.  I purchased an orange faceplate for it, since this is rumor/spec and I don't see an orange I will go for red.  Please, and thank you
