New Nokia Flame 4G (with Windows Phone 8) and Samsung Codina headed to T-Mobile USA
According to a recently leaked document, T-Mobile USA will launch its third Windows Phone 8 handset (after the Lumia 810 and HTC 8X) on April 24. This is going to be a Nokia-made device, apparently called Flame 4G.
Unfortunately, the Flame 4G doesn’t seem to be among Nokia’s upcoming high-end WP8 handsets, but an affordable one – so it won’t benefit from the company’s PureView technology.
TmoNews has it that the Nokia Flame 4G will feature a 4 inch WVGA display, 5MP rear camera, dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. It’s not clear how much the Flame 4G will cost. However, it’s probably going to be cheaper than the Nokia Lumia 810, currently offered by T-Mobile for $149.99 on contract.
As you can see in the document above, another upcoming smartphone made for T-Mobile USA is the Samsung Codina (due March 27). Codina is likely just a code name for the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit SGH-T599 – if that’s the case, it’s going to be T-Mobile’s own version of the Galaxy S III Mini, featuring Android Jelly Bean, a WVGA display, dual-core processor, and a 5MP rear camera.
On March 27, T-Mobile should also launch the BlackBerry Z10, and an LTE-capable Galaxy S III. We’ll keep you posted.
