Nokia® to launch Windows® 8-Powered Lumia Phi and Arrow soon
Nokia is all set to unveil its new range of Windows 8-powered phones Lumia Phi and Lumia Arrow. The Finland-based mobile handset maker along with software giant Microsoft is going to announce the launch of these two mobile phone models during Windows Phone 8 event in New York on September 5.
Features of Windows 8-based Nokia Lumia Phi and Arrow
As far as the features of these two Lumia handsets are concerned, nothing officially has been disclosed by Nokia or Microsoft. On the basis of various rumors that have been making rounds on the Internet, it has been speculated that the Nokia Lumia Phi will feature a large 4.7-inch AMOLED screen and a microSD card slot to further expand its onboard storage capacity. Rumors also indicate that the upcoming Windows 8-based smartphone is going to sport 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) connectivity, a dual-core Qualcomm chipset, NFC sharing feature, long lasting battery, and will be made up of Nokia’s hefty polycarbonate body.
On the other hand, the Nokia Lumia Arrow is going to be a mid-range Windows 8 phone that is expected to be closer to the Lumia 710 in terms of specifications.
AT&T, the second-biggest carrier in the U.S., reportedly plans to stock Nokia Lumia Phi as an exclusive device, throwing much of its weight behind it just like it did with the Nokia Lumia 900. However, the extent of At&T’s marketing plans to promote Lumia Phi is yet to be seen.
