An drawing of what is being called the Nokia 803 has leaked in what could be a first look at Nokia's new flagship cameraphone.

An illustration of what is purportedly called the Nokia 803 has leaked — and it might be packing an impressive camera. PocketNow has obtained a preliminary user manual for the Symbian-Belle-powered device, and while details are slim — the only information gleaned was that the phone would include NFC, and HDMI and DLNA connectivity — the site thinks the device lines up nicely with rumors of an N8 successor coming early next year. That new phone is said to include a 3.5-inch WVGA screen, 1GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, and an optical-zoom camera with a sensor even larger than the N8's heralded 12-megapixel shooter.

The substantial bump visible on the back of the so-called 803 may indicate an impressive camera. To our eyes, however, the phone has a design sensibility more in line with the Nokia 700 — complete with what appear to be physical call buttons — rather than Nokia's previous flagship cameraphone (much less the new N9). Still, for Symbian fans, any new device is a cause for celebration.
