Looks a lot like MeeGo.

Over at Nokianesia, some new images of Nokia’s upcoming “Carla” OS update have been leaked. The images show some very interesting developments for this upcoming update for Nokia smartphones.

 

The biggest change comes in the form of the new lock screen which now uses the ‘swipe to unlock’ method, replacing the old Unlock button. Next up is the new on-screen QWERTY keyboard which looks very much like Nokia’s Windows based phones. Lastly the music player receives a small refresh from the aging design of the original. Even the Browser sees some improvements.

 

All said and done, the new Carla update seems like it’s following in the footsteps of the MeeGo UI  as far as looks are concerned. This new update, though, will only come to Nokia 603, 700, 701 and the upcoming 808 PureView.
