Ok seriously. If you’re going release some leaked handset shots on the internet and you know they’re going to spread like wildfire, the least you can do is hose that sucker off. Come on guys, it looks like Darryl Jenks got his hands on the Tube and Soul Glo-ed it all up. Whatever the case may be, these pics came from half way around the world so the least we can do is check them out, right? Here it is; Nokia’s upcoming mid-range 5800 XpressMusic aka Tube in all of its greasy glory. There are also some interesting additions to the specs, which currently line up as follows:

  • Measurements: 111 × 52 × 14.5 mm, and weighs only 104 grams.
  • 16 million color TFT LCD, 640 × 360 pixel resolution, 16:9 display mode
  • Haptic feedback
  • 3.2 megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss optics with autofocus
  • Dual LED flash
  • Built-in GPS
  • 140 MB RAM
  • GSM / GPRS / EDGE / WCDMA / HSDPA / WLAN / Bluetooth
  • 3.5 mm audio jack, TV-out
  • BL-5J 1150 mAh battery

All things considered, it could shape up to be a pretty hot little handset. We’re really hoping that those are some pre-release graphics though, especially on the keypad shots. It would be a shame to waste that fantastic 640 × 360 resolution on Windows 3.1-looking buttons. Hit the jump to see what we’re talking about.
