Rumours: Nokia Phi with 4.7″ screen – start selling in October? (+a Lumia for Verizon says Bloomberg)

About two weeks ago, Stipan emailed us this image of his calculations on the screen of the Nokia Phi – estimated around 4.65″


It has been a long time since we touched any comments by the much loved ElMu but this isn’t anything scathing about Nokia being bought by someone all over again.

It’s just some hints about the upcoming Nokia Lumia WP8 devices, article below:

There is nothing actually new about the information presented here, as they’re either currently rumours already or public knowledge.

  • Nokia Phi
  • Lumia 800/900 design
  • Thinner, larger
  • 4.7″ screen
  • NFC
  • LTE
  • Bigger Battery
  • 1 day use
  • $935/$780/$600
Nothing else specific is mentioned.
ElMu often has low expectations and comments about Nokia devices, despite bloggers elsewhere praising things to high heaven he might refer to as ‘mediocre’ or ‘average’ so for him to say that this screen is very nice and up to bar with the best models is saying something. Either something is lost in translation there, or the screen is direct straight from Samsung and hence why it’s getting some praise :P.
Not sure what is said in the last few paragraphs. Something about SGSIII spring release managing to sell a significant amount before iPhone 5.
Cheers kirill for the tip
Oh whilst we’re here, BloomBerg says Lumia WP8 is coming to Verizon this year. This has been much expected since Verizon has made bold comments about supporting WP and making it popular like they did with Android. However, with the Verizon Moto event plopped on the same day as Nokia event, there were doubts again. Perhaps it will appear at a later event? Anyway, BloomBerg says that the US’ number 1 carrier, Verizon, WILL be getting a Nokia Lumia WP8 this year.
