Some Nokia Windows Phone handsets to use dual-core ST Ericsson chips

As reported back in April, Nokia plans to introduce about 16 Windows Phone handsets before the end of 2012 – most likely starting with the fourth quarter of this year.

And while the rumored Nokia W8 will be based on a dual-core Qualcomm platform, some of the company’s other WP devices wont’ use Qualcomm chipsets, but ST-Ericsson ones.

More exactly, Nokia will choose the dual-core ST-Ericsson U8500 chipset for a number of its Windows smartphones. At least that’s what Carlo Bozotti, CEO of STMicroelectronics (half of ST-Ericsson) told Forbes.

You can check out the capabilities of the U8500 (which include 1080p video recording and touchscreen display support up to WXGA – 1280 x 768) here at ST-Ericsson.

Forbes mentioned that only Nokia’s “Windows Phone 8” handsets would use ST-Ericsson chipsets. And since WP8 will most probably be out in 2012, any Nokia WP device that’s released this year is almost certainly going to be Qualcomm-based.

    It would be a good deal for Nokia. Nokia use to have Symbian operating
    system on their cell phones but with layoffs from the dead operating
    system (Symbian) it was the right move for Nokia to partner with
    Microsoft to have Windows 7 mobile on their cell phones.

    It is good that Nokia is moving to the ST-Ericsson technologies which will go ahead from iPhone 4. Now, the iPhone 5 Apple is trying to make it more LTE which will have NFC technologies. However, the Samsung phones are way ahead with Android and in the feature with Winodws OS as well. By the looks of the Nokia’s picture (from above) it seems that Nokia needs to redesign its smartphone. If they do, i will buy a Nokia phone, if not I am sticking to Samsung.
