Earlier today we saw some leaked images of several unreleased Microsoft devices, including what could possibly be the Lumia 1330, along with the Lumia 535. However more interesting to some, was the color these devices appeared in, as several of these phones displayed a new intense blue color that hasn’t been used on Lumia devices before.
The color is much darker than the Cyan blue that Nokia originally used with the Nokia N9, then carried onto the Lumia 800, 900 and phased out in the 920. After which Nokia introduced the glossy red and electric yellow in the Lumia 920 and 820 and then the 1520, while adding the bright green with the Lumia 625 and the vibrant orange with the Lumia 830, 730, 630 and 530.
Nokia however did phase out other colors to make room for these new colors, as none of the original cyan or magenta made it past the first generation of WP8 devices, the glossy red of the Lumia 920 and 1520 seems to have also been benched in favor of other colors, so it isn’t unheard of for Nokia to throw out the old and embrace the new.
It’s worth noting that the color is a very close match the color used in the “Lumia Denim” font in the latest software version by Nokia, which would make some sense. However since none of the devices have actually been confirmed by Microsoft it’s possible these could be scrapped at any moment and never truly see the light of day.
Does anyone like the new intense blue? (dare we call it Microsoft blue?), or should they bring back the cyan?
