Nokia Phi Windows Phone 8 – what you need to know

Nokia is said to have jumped on the Windows 8 phone bandwagon with rumours abounding that a smartphone codenamed Nokia Phi is in the pipeline.

A report by Nokia innovations has outlined details of a successor to the Nokia Lumia 800, which will be closer in dimensions to handsets such as the Nokia Lumia 900.

This would see the Nokia Phi feature a 4.65-inch touch as opposed to a 3.7-inch. This would put the model in the phablet category, midway between a smartphone and a tablet, and defined by ABI research as phones that feature a display size between 4.6 to 5.5 inches.

Nokia Phi features

The Nokia Phi is set to be powered by a Qualcomm dual core processor and also feature microSD expansion that will give users access to flexible storage. 4G LTE is also expected to bring the Phi bang up to date.

Design features on the model are set to include a power button, camera shutter button and two volume buttons on the side of the device, in addition to three buttons below the screen, as well as a polycarbonate unibody design.

Other speculation suggests that the smartphone will have the same design as the Lumia 800, while featuring a curved screen.

The Windows 8 OS will include features such as Tap and Do which allows connection to wireless devices, such as headphones, and speakers, by simply tapping them against your device.

Windows Phone 8 due out soon

Utilising Near Field Communications (NFC), Windows 8 eliminates the need for a lengthy set up process.

Microsoft describes Windows 8 in the following way:

“The beautiful, fast, and fluid design is perfect for a range of hardware: from compact, touch-enabled tablets and lightweight laptops, to PCs and large, powerful all-in-ones with high-definition screens.”

With ABI predicting that 208 million phablets will be sold 2015 the as yet unconfirmed Phi could prove to be a shrewd move for Nokia.
