New Nokia Phone with Windows 8 will be presented on September 5

The new Windows Phone 8 from Nokia are just around the corner. Within just three weeks when the Finnish company will hold its annual event, Nokia World 2012, which will share with participants presenting the New Nokia Phone Lumia devices, designed to work with the most advanced platform of Microsoft for smart phones.

New Nokia Phone with Windows 8 will be presented on September 5

In the invitation sent to media this fact makes it quite clear, showing the same of similar composition to the interface Metro of Windows Phone, including data for opening doors in the event, also referring to Nokia and Microsoft as Hosts for the occasion.

Fortunately, the thicker the land of the leaks, and to illustrate what could submit Nokia at the event, we learned a couple of missteps that have been uncovered by Unwired View and WPXAP. In both cases, we dealt with components of a pair of phones, which presumably would be two of the terminals going to announce on September 5 in the opening event of Nokia World 2012. Specifically, it is the protective surface of the front of two unique models in the catalog of the Nokia.

In the case of filtering that we have learned through Unwired View, we have a panel that would be defined by a screen of 4.3 inches, which would coincide with the current high-end signature, Nokia Lumia 900. It is noteworthy that, at least looking at this component, it appears that the final design would have the device that would set the front panel would display a rounded appearance around the edges, perhaps along the lines of that seen in the Nokia Lumia 610, but with a larger-and unlike seen in the Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900.

In fact, the straight lines of these yes that would be present at the second potential terminal which would consist of the front panel that has leaked through WPXAP. In this case we encounter itself with a protective cover with an appearance closer to that seen in the two phones in the first level of the Finnish firm. However, in one as another, it is difficult to determine whether the final design will be so dependent on the form taken this component, though, a priori, one would think they will.

Both end faces match, also on two elements of interest review. On the one hand, both boast a small hole next to the earpiece for what appears to be a front camera, the Nokia Lumia 900 and included a side of a megapixel sensor. Furthermore, the logo of Windows Phone that is located in the lower mode capacitive start button has changed its design, now adopting the appearance of the new corporate identity that Microsoft has defined for the whole family of platforms to be put in a position to phones, tablets and computers from next autumn.

The Nokia smartphone with Windows Phone 8 arrive in September

Nokia released its new line of Lumia Nokia smartphone system based on Windows Phone 8 over the next Nokia World 2012.
The annual conference that the Finnish firm place to present their new products, and that this time will take place in Helsinki between days 5 and 6 September, will host the second generation mobile platform the company Microsoft.

The Nokia Windows Phone 8 arrive in September

What they have not pointed out these sources is the nature of the mobile that Nokia submitted to expand the family Lumia. In addition to incorporating Windows Phone 8, which is the latest version of the platform of Redmond, is expected to strain any device to expand its appeal thanks to the presence of technology PureView, unveiled the Nokia 808 PureView and has special peculiarity as the possibility of taking pictures and videos with an unusual quality. Not surprisingly, the said device to capture images with a maximum resolution of between 34 and 38 megapixels and no effective terms, and offers a digital zoom that emulates the results of a powerful optical zoom small format.

Nevertheless, although Nokia has confirmed that we will see mobile PureView system in one of its next Lumia, have not ensured that the second generation of devices with Windows Phone will integrate a model with this technology. What we do know is that we have a prototype that seems to work with Windows Phone 8.

China is the web WPDang that has leaked this model, which, incidentally, themselves baptized as 900 Fake Nokia Lumia, or whatever it is, Nokia Lumia 900 of paste. What you see is a model that indeed looks like the latest and most comprehensive mobile terminal of this family, but with the proviso that displays icons for Windows Phone 8, although, in fact, it could be Windows 7.8 phone.

And, as you may recall, the current generation of devices Windows Phone can not be done with the version called Apollo. In return, these terminals will receive an update dubbed Windows Phone 7.8 that basically emulates the look of Windows Phone 8, and specific system functions more advanced Microsoft.

Therefore, it is difficult to ascertain whether the images shown WPDang correspond to a Nokia 900 with Windows Phone Lumia 7.8 or if it is a prototype that come with the platform to be released in the coming weeks. A clue may be given by the terminal housing, color yellow, which is not available for any of the official models of Lumia 900. In any case, there is a turning point, given that Nokia could expand the palette of this device without too much effort.

Also, the memory section has also been improved. With Windows Phone 7, the possibility of increasing the internal memory of the mobile was zero, something that the user quite limited. However, Windows Phone 8 compatibility with SD memory cards will be assured. Besides getting more space to store information in general, will also be much easier to move files between your phone and a computer.

Following the developments presented by Microsoft, note that one of the technologies of the year – NFC or Near Field Communication – will also be present in the repertoire. But his approach is not exclusive to pay as a credit card or using compatible accessories, also is intended that the client or consumer to share files more comfortable such as photographs, office documents or information from a phone contact.

As for new applications, following the previous thread, Microsoft Wallet will be responsible for making payments by NFC in establishments that are approved and ready.

And is that the firm Nordic-one of the great allies of recent times, will be responsible for mapping that uses Windows Phone 8 in new-generation terminals. Moreover, it sets aside the exclusivity that had the Nokia Lumia and maps are open to the entire platform. One of the strengths is the known use offline or offline in English. How it works It is simple: the client is downloaded to the terminal maps and stored in internal memory. In this way, you can navigate streets and highways and not use the contracted data rate.

Finally, Microsoft has said that the existing terminals with Windows Phone 7.5 can not be upgraded to the latest icons. However, neither be idly: we are working on a new version that integrates more than one new feature and the name that will receive this update will be Windows Phone 7.8.

Windows Phone 7 prepares to land in a market where the lion is played by Android, licensed for 56% of active smartphones in China (data from 2011).

The open source nature of Android was the main reason for its success, having allowed Chinese companies to develop a perfect range of applications in their own language and with selective requirements for Android, which makes them much more popular for the average user. To compete with Android, Microsoft will need to develop the same type of platform to Windows Phone 7, which represents one of the biggest challenges on which Microsoft and HTC are betting.
