Lumia 610 hands on

Nokia is expected to unveil two new Windows Phone 8 devices at an event in New York City on September 5, but the Finnish firm may have a third handset up its sleeve that could make its debut before the holiday season. It's called the 'Glory', according to The Verge, and it'll be a successor to the Lumia 610 (above).

Like the Lumia 610, the Glory is expected to be a budget handset, sporting a 4-inch display, an 800MHz processor, and 256MB of RAM. The device will ship with Windows Phone 7.8 installed, which means that unfortunately, it won't get a Windows Phone 8 upgrade. This won't be Nokia's first affordable Windows Phone 8 device, then.

The Glory won't make its debut alongside the rumored Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 next week, according to The Verge, but it is expected to launch later this year — just in time for the holiday season.
