The Finnish mobile maker is expected to launch its one of the first Windows Phone 8 devices, the so-called Nokia Phi at the upcoming Nokia World event on September 5th. It’s been a while since we heard from Russian tech enthusiast Eldar Murtazin, the man who brings some exclusive or leaked information of the upcoming smartphones. If Murtazin’s belief in the launch plans for the smartphone are correct, we’ll get our first chance to see it at Nokia’s event early next month, and it will hit markets in October.
He has revealed that Nokia Phi will sport a bigger 4.7-inch display, which is the same size as the HTC Titan. He described the handset’s OLED screen as beautiful with no points or complaints possible against it and there is a microSD card slot inside, NFC connectivity, LTE radio, while the device packs thinner body than the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 devices.
He has also mentioned that Nokia Phi’s high capacity battery lets the handset to last for one whole day on a single charge. Hence, the battery life is noticeable less than the Nokia Lumia 800 or Lumia 900 devices. Murtazin believes that the Nokia Phi checks in at $930 for Russian markets and the other two Nokia WP8 devices will go for $780 and $650.
Anyhow, these claims come from Elder Murtazin and there is no way to confirm anything. So, take this information with a great big pinch of salt. According to Bloomberg, Verizon Wireless is considering to get a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 this year.
