Nokia Lumia 800 Design History Revealed

Nokia has created a video that goes over the thought process behind the design of the Nokia Lumia 800. The new smartphone runs the Windows Phone Mango operating system and is a huge change in direction for the company who has worked for years with the Symbian OS.

The video speaks about the design of the Nokia Lumia 800 although it doesn’t really make mention of the Nokia N9 which its design comes from. Overall, it’s quite an interesting video to watch though so perhaps it’s worth checking out the 8 minute video below.

Details revealed in the video tell us the casing is made of plastic… a polycarbonate mono body. The reason for this is that Nokia wanted an RF transparent casing so that signal is not blocked in any way and thus, keeps calls connected and data connections streaming as well as they can. The display used is 3.7 inches and is an AMOLED ClearBlack which is slightly curved around the edges.

Take a look at the video below to see the process of designing the Lumia 800.
