Nokia Phi might be unveiled at Nokia World, with LTE and dual-core CPU on board

Back in May, a mysterious handset known only as the Nokia Phi was revealed by a benchmark application. All that was known about the device at the time was that it ran Windows Phone 8. Now, however, the rumor mill is throwing a few more puzzle pieces on the table.
According to Nokia Innovation, the Nokia Phi is the same Windows Phone 8 prototype handset, images of which leaked a few days back. It is claimed that the smartphone is bigger, thicker, and heavier than the Nokia Lumia 800, possibly close to the Lumia 900 in terms of dimensions. It will retain the polycarbonate unibody design, however, meaning that a user replaceable battery is out of the question. There will be no physical buttons on the front, but four of them will reside on its right side – two volume keys, a power button, and a camera shutter.
As far as hardware is concerned, it is believed that the Nokia Phi (just a codename, most likely) will be powered by a dual-core Qualcomm processor. There will also be an LTE radio on board, which leads us to believe that the smartphone could eventually come to the U.S. An NFC chip and a slot for microSD cards are also said to be included.
Of course, don't forget that what you just read is a rumor, and those should not be trusted just like that, especially when there is no hard evidence in support of the claims above. Nevertheless, the source of this tip promises to provide images of the Nokia Phi ahead of its announcement. Speaking of announcements, Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones are likely to be unveiled at Nokia World, so stay tuned for more if you are also excited to see them.

People i don't think Nokia will bring out pureview windows phone phones this year. We shouldn't get too excited. I think they might release one in the first quarter of next year. Still i hope im wrong :D

The PHI is supposed to be the weakest Nokia windows "8" handset to come to America. I think Verizon's Nokia smart phone will have Prevue camera technology. Verizon is said ti have high hopes to sell it
