Chinese companies have a knack to produce clones that are not out in the market so it is not really surprising when a new clone surfaced over the weekend claiming to be the successor of highly successful 5800 XpressMusic. However, despite its worldly claims I don’t think it’s original.
Its alleged specifications:
5 megapixel camera
S60 5th Edition OS
Since we’re seeing it as a successor, we expect it to up the ante in every department from the previous model. Though it gives the same OS, a tad larger 3.5-inch screen, upped camera and a kickstand, it does not have 3G or a front video camera, which is rather unusual. 5800XM has it.
Also, most of the Nokia phones have a Carl Zeiss camera which they mention on the back of the phone. 5800XM had it so there was no reason why it won’t be on 5900XM. However, the picture above does not mention the presence of Carl Zeiss anywhere at the back.
5800XM camera boasted flash but the purported 5900XM does not have it (picture above). Instead it resembles a speaker cover which gives an indication that there are two speakers on the sides of the camera, pretty much akin to Chinese make phones.
Finally, here’s the kicker. The pic above reveals the expansion slot of the phone. Can you read what’s written? It’s TFLASH aka Transflash. As far as I know Nokia does not call its expansion slot by T-Flash. Do they?
