Back in 2004 Nokia showed off prototype photos of a gaming phone similar to the older N-Gage phone. The new phone, known as the 7700, was canceled before making it on to the market leaving many Nokia fans without a replacement game phone.
Thankfully in China old abandoned designs of yesteryear are this year’s cutting edge, and the Nokia 7700 has been reborn in a Shanzhai body.
The clone branded under the popular Nckia Shanzhai brand and called the ‘NG’ gets a very similar body design to that of the ill fated 7700, but with added controls for dialing numbers and a front facing camera. The screen also seems to be off center and smaller in the clone than it was on the original.
