During Nokia World in London on Wednesday, Nokia unveiled two of the company’s Windows Phone smartphones, including the Nokia Lumia 800 and the slightly less powerful Nokia Lumia 710. The Lumia 710, originally codenamed “Sabre,” is equipped with a 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch ClearBlack display with an 800 x 480-pixel resolution, a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording 720p HD video at 30 frames per second, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 1,300mAh battery. Nokia said that a “portfolio of products” would eventually be available in the United States next year but that the Lumia 710 will first launch in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan by the end of the year for €270 unsubsidized. We’ll be bringing you a hands-on with the Lumia 710 as well as the Lumia 800 later in the day.
Nokia will announce the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710 during its Nokia World event in London on Wednesday, WinRumors reported on Tuesday. The Lumia 800 was originally leaked as the “SeaRay” and earlier rumors suggested the phone will pack an 8-megapixel camera and a 3.7-inch display. The Lumia 710 first appeared as the “Sabre” and it allegedly offers a 3.5-inch display, a 1.4GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera and 1GB of RAM. These two Windows Phone 7.5 devices could hit the market as soon as November, in-line with Nokia’s promise to launch a Windows Phone product this year.

Nokia may be poised to unveil at least two new Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) devices during its Nokia World conference next week. Pocketnow spilled an image of the Nokia “Sabre” on Thursday, which reportedly packs a 1.4GHz processor, a 3.5-inch WVGA display, a 5-megapixel camera and 1GB of storage. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said we can expect to see “a bunch” of Windows Phone handsets from Nokia during Nokia World, which kicks off on October 26th.
