Recent murmurs that Nokia is developing a miniature version of its N97 mobile phone have since gained fresh credibility, following publication of images which show the slimmed-down model in the flesh.

Earlier this year a Vodafone employee blabbed on a company forum that it “will be launching the N97 Mini later this year”. Once the news made the headlines, the forum posting was swiftly deleted – of course.

But images have now appeared online that clearly show an N97-esque device in a smaller form factor.

While none of the latest model’s features have been unearthed, yet, it’s worth noting that the N97 Mini sports a slightly smaller display than the one found on the original. It also has fewer physical buttons than the original N97 does.

The N97 Mini could launch later this year

The N97’s sliding lens cap hasn’t been fitted to the miniature model, pictures of the phone’s rear have revealed.

Neither Nokia nor Vodafone have officially commented on the existence of an N97 Mini, yet. ®
