Details of two more Nokia handsets running the Windows Phone operating system have emerged, as Espoo gears up to reclaim its position at the smartphone summit.
The Ace and Sabre will join the Sea Ray, which we already know about, in Nok Nok's line-up after The Nokia Blog obtained specs for the trio courtesy of an anonymous tipster.
The Sea Ray, to start off with, will boast a 3.7-inch AMOLED display, an eight-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 16GB of on board storage and a 1540mAh battery.
The Sabre will also be home to a 3.7-inch screen but of the LCD variety, a five-megapixel with autofocus, interchangeable back cover and 8GB of internal storage with 25GB of cloud storage on Windows SkyDrive. Judging by the specs, we’re assuming this will be lower-end kit aimed at new smartphone owners.
Finally, the Ace, will rock a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen, an eight-megapixel Carl Zeiss snapper with autofocus, 16GB of storage and an 1800mAh battery. More interestingly, it will support HSPA+, making it Nokia’s first LTE 4G handset. This is reportedly destined for stateside only, at least at launch, on the AT&T network in early 2012.
All three handsets will sport ClearBlack Display technology for their screens, which was introduced on the Nokia N8, and a 1.4GHz SoC processor - possibly a single core number from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon range.
Nokia is expected to launch at least one Windows Phone handset before the end of the year. Whether it’ll just be the Sea Ray or all three remains to be seen, as the Finnish giant remains tight-lipped on its plans.
The handsets are expected to be announced officially at the Nokia World event on October 26th.
