Lumia 800 Spotted Running Leaked Windows Phone 7.8 ROM

Nokia Lumia 800 owners disappointed at being ineligible for the Windows Phone 8 update, we’ve got some good news for you. A Nokia Lumia 800 has been spotted running what appears to be a leaked version of Windows Phone 7.8.

When Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8, they also mentioned that the current Windows Phone devices will not get upgraded to the latest version of Microsoft’s smartphone operating system. This came as a disappointment to many, but Microsoft was there for the consolation by offering Windows Phone 7.8 for existing WP devices, bringing the new updated home screen with smaller tile sizes and possibly some other features of WP8.

The WP 7.8 leak was spotted by XDA Senior Member Budniu on Polish Windows Phone forum WindowsMania. It shows off the updated home screen neatly organized with the small app tiles, which look quite beautiful and more productive at the same time.

While the ROM isn’t available for download yet, you can join the discussion thread for more screenshots and watch it in action in the video below.
