Mockup

Back in December, a really poor (but accurate) photo of the Windows Phone 8.1 notification settings screen was revealed on Twitter by a Salman M. At the time, we confirmed internally that it was real, though possible older.

Now, a clearer mockup of that photo has been posted by the site WinSource. We say ‘mockup’ because it is technically not a real photo of the OS in action. Rather, it’s a re-creation of that photo and what it conveys. Having said that, what is shown in truly based off of Windows Phone 8.1.

There’s not too much to say about this one except here are the first almost official images of the Verizon Nokia Lumia 928 aka ‘Laser’ that is due sometime this month (which was revealed previously in our forums).

The images were leaked by @evleaks, so we’re sure they’re legit.

The Lumia 928 is supposed to be the Verizon/CDMA counterpart of the Lumia 920 but with some minor updates, including a supposed Xenon flash, which is clearly visible next to the adjacent LED and a slightly thinner frame (though not as thin as ‘Catwalk’). Otherwise, it shares the same 4.5” LCD display, 1.5GHz dual core CPU. Current memory allocation is unknown though it is thought to be 32GB.

Thoughts? Sound off in comments and remember, there will probably be more colors than just boring black, so don’t be too hard.

WPCentral mockup: HTC Radiant

Our go-to-guy for device renders, Brian, is back with another high quality mockup of the HTC Radiant (click to zoom) The Radiant is thought to be basically the HTC Titan but with LTE on board, slightly thicker for the larger battery and some minor cosmetic changes.

Pocketnow leaked the blurry image the other day and now Brian has gone ahead and made it much nicer to look at with more detail. By all accounts, it looks like a Titan to our eyes, but we're sure once we hold one the differences will become more obvious.

Follow Brian here on Twitter and see his work with the LG Fantasy and Nokia 900.

We saw some leaked images of the LG Fantasty recently, a phone long in the making and which passed the FCC earlier in 2011 with CDMA bands. The phone appeared over at XDA and while there is not a lot of info on the device, here is what we know:

  • 4" IPS display
  • 1GHz second generation CPU, scoring 85.7 on WP Bench (similar to HTC Radar)
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • 1.3MP front-facing camera; Rear camera (5MP?)
  • The device is very light
  • Three front capacitive buttons

No word if this will see the light of day anywhere--perhaps LG took too long and no carriers will pick it up? Either way, reader Brian has thrown together some high res, detailed mockups for us to compensate for those less-than-spectacular leaked images. While not a top-tier phone, it doesn't look too bad for a mid-range device and that IPS screen has us intrigued.

We've seen the video a few times already today, but in case you wanted a better idea of what the 'Sea Ray' will look like in some professional shots, here's your chance.

Taken from the official Nokia N9 shots, Downright Wireless has re-imagined the device with familiar WP7 start screen (and extra camera button). In addition to the black, we can see the alternate colors would bring to the table as well. That baby blue? Not too shabby of a choice, that's for sure.

Head to Downright Wireless for a few more shots of their excellent work.

Here's something interesting that dropped in our mailbox. What you see here the top row  is normal, vanilla Windows Mobile 6.5, but the bottom row was supposed to be WM6.5.1.

Of course for those of you who have played with WM6.5.1, you might have surmised those design elements are not part of that build and in fact, you would be correct.

From what we've been told, the bottom row is now, roughly speaking, what WM7 will look like. This was an internal mockup used for design planning.

Sure, not mind blowing but the comparison is nice to see and those little improvements to dialog boxes and menus go a long way in the end.

Update: Looks like the mad tipster's on the loose again. Pocketnow's been slipped some more shots from this same batch, it appears.
