Nokia to offer Windows Phone 8 smartphones in September

Nokia has been going through tough times lately and the recent discovery that the current crop of Lumia smartphones won’t get an upgrade to Windows Phone 8 has added more pressure onto the ailing communications giant. Still, there’s light in the tunnel – sources close to Nokia now claim the company will ship its first Windows Phone 8 devices next month.

Supposedly the first WP8-based Nokia device will be the mysterious Nokia Lumia X. The device is expected to be unveiled in September 2012 possibly at the upcoming IFA 2012 trade fair. Apart from Windows Phone 8 the smartphone will boast an impressive AMOLED ClearBlack display with HD resolution. Inside the user will also find a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor that will likely run at 1.5 GHz. In addition, the smartphone sports an 8-megapixel photo snapper with Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus and LED flash.

Nokia Lumia X

The thing that captures attention the most is something else though – the Nokia Lumia X comes with a rotating part located at the bottom of the device. Apart from housing the camera the rotating part also offers media keys and apparently gaming keys. Finally Nokia is to bring N-Gage back but it is not known when.

All in all, please bear in mind that the information is not official so some things mentioned here, or even all of them, may change abruptly and significantly.
