Last year, we got wind of the Nokia Moonraker, a smartwatch that was being cooked up by the Finnish firm but that was ultimately canceled by Microsoft in favor of the Band. The last time that we saw the Moonraker, we were looking at marketing renders, but today we’re getting a peek at the actual device in the flesh.
Images of the Nokia Moonraker have made their way onto Chinese social networking site Weibo. On the back of the unit we can see some pins that’d likely be used to charge the Moonraker, and around front is a square touchscreen. We don’t get to seem much of the software that’s on the device, but there are a couple of photos that show something resembling the old Windows Phone software, including its Glance Screen feature.
There’s also a photo that shows the Moonraker’s internals, including an ARM chip. However, details on the Nokia Moonraker are still fairly light, so it’s unclear what kind of specs this thing is packing.
Based on what we’ve seen of it so far, the Nokia Moonraker looks like it would’ve included a user interface similar to Windows Phone. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that most of us will ever actually get to use a Moonraker, and even if we did, it’d probably run some early software. At least we’ve got leaks like this one that let us ogle unreleased hardware and think about what might have been.
