Rumors surrounding the Nokia Lumia 719 became more substantial back in February when the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, the official organization for setting and maintaining Bluetooth standards, posted details of the device on its website following its approval.
We now have a blurry image of the device out in the wild ahead of Nokia’s Windows Phone announcement in China on March 28. It comes from Chinese Windows Phone blog WPDang and it looks a lot like the Lumia 710. Rumors claim this will be Nokia’s budget handset for Asia, featuring both CDMA-2000 and GSM connectivity.
According to the Bluetooth SIG’s listing, the Lumia 719 is a “versatile, well-designed smartphone offering users easy and seamless [sic] to make the most of every moment, every day.” It will feature a 3.7-inch ClearBlack display, a 5-megapixel camera with high-definition video recording, and exclusive content from ESPN and Univision, the site claims.
Although we can’t be sure that the Lumia 719 will indeed be one of Nokia’s debut handsets for China, the Bluetooth SIG does state that the handset is headed to Asia, North America, and South America. We’re sure to find out more on March 28.
