Nokia Plans N9 Mini Smartphone

Nokia announced N9 smartphone back in 2011, which was one of the first devices that were running MeGoo Harmattan operating system. There were plenty of rumours suggesting that Nokia could return to MeGoo platform but under different brand.

According to MyNokiaBlog, Nokia appears to be working on the N9 upgrade, after stopping support to the handset. The report claims that the rumoured handset is N9 Mini, and it should be launched as a part of the Asha series handsets.

During the MWC, we could see the design for the Asha series which is evolving towards becoming more N9-like. The source claims that the phone has three different screen; menu, notification and application. Switching to different screen is done via swipe gesture as we have seen in N9.

Moving on, there will be a single button at front, user interface is inspired from N9 in all apps and the phone will support dual SIM, 3G and WiFi. The only downside is that the phone still does not run multiple apps and has a low screen resolution of 240 x 320 pixels.
