Nokia patent may also reveal new Windows Phone 8 device

Earlier this month, an image leaked that could turn out to be one of Nokia's next Lumia devices, based on Windows Phone 8. Now a patent application has appeared that also may offer an early glimpse at what is coming next from Nokia.

LiveSide.net discovered the image, which was posted on the US Patent and Trademark Office website earlier this week. The patent drawing does appear to be very similar to the leaked image that showed up earlier in August.

In any case, Nokia seems to be ready to reveal all about its next Lumia smartphones very soon. The company will team up with Microsoft for a press event in New York City on September 5th and we will be there to get all of the details. An earlier report claims, via unnamed sources, that Nokia and Microsoft will reveal two smartphones at the event, with the code names "Arrow" and "Phi."

Assuming that new Lumia handsets are announced on the 5th though, it's likely that the products themselves won't actually be made available for sale to the general public until sometime in the fourth quarter of 2012.

hey look at that picture of the leaked nokia, the battery icon is much closer to the clock than in earlier builds. perhaps ms had added new notifications on the top bar such as texts or calls

As long as they bring back the curved glass from the 800, I'll love it. Otherwise, Nokia phones are excessively big compared to their competitors (especially compared to the Samsung Focus S)

I'll be happy so long as the screen doesn't get too big, between 3.5-4" is big enough for a phone!

4.7" is the rumour for the high end device.

they will release like 4 new phones in the next few months.. get the smaller ones then instead of hating on their largest phone about being too big

Ok, personally I like it because lumia's design fit for me really well. So newer Lumia with plus/minus same body is something I'm looking forward.
