We once knew the handset as the Nokia Tube. It was a major step for the Finnish phonemaker, since the renamed Nokia 5800 XpressMusic represented the first touchscreen handset from Nokia. Well, we are now ready for its successor.
For people who don’t like the price and extra bulk of the Nokia N97, it seems that Finland is working on a new version of the Tube known as the Nokia 5900 XpressMusic. As you can tell, this is a very obvious follow-up to the first 5800 XpressMusic.
We’ll have to take this report with a serious grain of salt for a few reasons. First, Nokia hasn’t confirmed anything to say that such a phone was in the works. More importantly, however, the leaked photos are coming out of some random source in China, a country that we’ve come to associate with product knockoffs and clones.
In this way, it’s very well possible that we are not looking at the Nokia 5900 XpressMusic at all. Instead, it could just be a Mokia 5900 eXpressSound or something. If we are to believe these leaks, though, we’re looking at a slimmer chassis, a 5 megapixel camera, and Symbian S60 5th Edition UI.
