Windows Phone 8

Looking forward to picking up one of Nokia's first Windows Phone 8 devices? It may not be too long before we find out what they are. According to Chinese website WPDang, Nokia will unveil the first two handsets from its next-generation lineup at Nokia World on September 5.

Continuing with its Lumia branding, Nokia is expected to label the handsets the Lumia 910 and the Lumia 920. Unfortunately, the report doesn't reveal what these handsets will offer, but it does claim that they won't get Nokia's impressive PureView camera technology, which recently made its debut on the Symbian-based 808 PureView.

WPDang also claims that Microsoft will make an appearance at the event to demonstrate more Windows Phone 8 features. The company gave us a glimpse at the new platform back in June, but there are still plenty of features and improvements we're yet to see.

An unveiling at Nokia World would make the Finnish firm one of the first smartphone manufacturers to announce a Windows Phone 8 handset, which is hardly surprising given its close relationship with Microsoft. HTC, Huawei, and Samsung are also said to be working on devices of their own, but none of them have revealed one just yet.
