Nokia reportedly working on two low-cost Window Phone 8 devices - Flame and Zeal.

India, Sept. 10 -- Nokia is reportedly working on a low-end Windows Phone 8 device called the Flame. It is expected to have a 4-inch display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5MP camera. The device has only 4GB of internal storage but it is expandable up to 32GB via a micro SD card. The Nokia Flame is expected to launch next year.

Nokia recently announced two of its Windows Phone 8 devices, the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820. The Lumia 920 is Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 8 device and has a 4.5-inch IPS LCD PureMotion HD+ capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280x768 pixels. The Lumia 920 has 32GB of built-in storage and no microSD card slot. The smartphone has an 8.7MP camera and runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, coupled with 1GB of RAM and a 2000 mAh battery.

The Lumia 820 on the other hand is a mid range device from Nokia and has a 4.3-inch display with a resolution of 480x800 and has an 8MP camera. The device has a 1650mAh battery and supports expandable memory via microSD card up to 32GB.

We'd heard of another 4-inch low-cost Windows Phone device from Nokia, called Glory, in the first week of September. A bare-bones phone with an 800MHz processor, and 256MB of RAM, it is expected to run only Windows Phone 7.8, and to hit shelves only by December.

No pricing or exact launch details of the Nokia Flame are known, but we expect it hit store shelves in 2013 and be priced close to what the Lumia 610 and the 710 are priced at.

Another Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphone called the Zeal is expected to launch next year. The device is a mid to low-end smartphone and is expected to have a 4.3-inch display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB internal storage.
