Nokia Set to Unveil Two Windows Phone 8 Handsets?

Nokia is planning to unveil two new Windows Phone 8 devices at a joint press event with Microsoft on 5 September, a report has revealed.

According to The Verge, the Finnish manufacturer will launch its Phi and Arrow smartphones at the event, which will take place in New York City. Both handsets are expected to form part of Nokia’s Lumia range, although the current monikers are acting as temporary codenames.

According to speculation the Phi will be marketed as a high-end Windows Phone 8 handset and is set to come complete with a polycarbonate body and curved 4.7-inch AMOLED display.

The device is also touted to be slimmer than the current Lumia 900 flagship and will feature a microSD card slot for storage expansion and a larger capacity battery.

Details for the Arrow remain thin on the ground, however, sources close to the company are suggesting that it will be pitched firmly as a mid-range handset and will also run the forthcoming Windows Phone 8 platform.

Stay tuned to the Dialaphone blog where we will bring you news from the Nokia event as soon as it happens.
