    This one has been granted to Nokia on 11th September 2012, which makes it a fit candidate for our high-end Lumia 920 variant speculations. It looks sleek and appealing unibody design somewhat on the lines of Lumia 920′s patented design, but yet strikingly different.

    I kind of like it. I hope it is something for Verizon as our sad friends on team Red need a boost.

    I actually like that. While people are laughing at iPhone being tall, it to me makes much more ergonomic sense than making the phone wider.
    Nokia used to do this with N9 and likes by not having any hw buttons (or the Android likes bottom software buttons) and making it most of all tall.

    Let's keep in mind that this doesn't mean the phone will actually get made and mass produced.

    I'm in for a phone with minimal bezel space.

    in the comments on the WMPoweruser site, someone indicates that it looks like a Symbian phone, with a link to a phone that looks very much like the drawings.

    It's not a Surface phone... in fact I wish the design was more original... You still see the N9 influence...

    Of course, but that's inside Nokia. You can see great looking concepts made by random people that are branded Nokia every week.

    Yes you are right actually, that's a bit older Symbian phone called 801t. Was only made for Chinese market.

    Wouldn't they have already patented a phone that had been previously released?

    whatever it is, If it's a WP8 device that is on it's way then it looks like it would take on the 720P resolution instead of the 768 or the 480 resolution.

    Could be the quad-core heading to VZW I've heard about. Target date on that is February/March.
