Leaked Video Gives A Glimpse Of Nokia’s Cancelled Smartwatch
 

Nokia had been working on a smartwatch codenamed Moonraker. It was rumored that the watch was to be launched with the Lumia 930 handset way back in 2014. However the Moonraker faced an unfortunate fate after Microsoft took over Nokia. Microsoft cancelled all the plans for the Nokia smartwatch and instead initiated work on its own Microsoft Band hardware.

We have seen the images of the Moonraker two years ago but it is now also seen in a leaked video. The video named as Nokibar can be seen on Youtube. In the video you can see the basic functions of the watch.

The smartwatch has a swipe-based user interface which allows navigation betweens apps and features. The smartwatch has a button allocated to switch from app interface to smartwatch interface.

The Nokia smartwatch should not be underestimated. It has the same feature of long presses on the display as found in the Apple or Android Wear watch. Nokia had planned the smartwatch to be successful and even intended to support a calendar, email, messaging and other basic apps too.

The video gives a fantastic demo of what could have been possible with the Nokia watch. The video has been released at a very peculiar time following the cancellation of the Microsoft band. Microsoft has cancelled its plans for the Band 3 device.

Images of the wearable were leaked last month. However for now Microsoft aims to be more focused on its PC and universal apps for VR and AR headsets.
