Apart from Nokia’s PureView and QWERTY phones, Lenovo and ASUS may manufacture WP8 handsets too

Windows Phone 8 may see Nokia bringing in QWERTY and PureView based devices. Lenovo and ASUS may contribute to the manufacture of Windows Phone 8 handsets as well.

As per wmpoweruser, the MSNerd has yet again sought to tweet about the Windows Phone 8 ‘Apollo’ featuring devices.

While the source claims that the Finnish phone giant Nokia, is all set to bring in a Windows Phone 8 handset in a PureView style, it also indicates that the device will however be embellished with an (N8 sort of) 12-megapixel shooter.

In addition, the report also indicates that the same handset will sport a rather neat ClearBlack display with a reasonably good resolution of 1280×720 pixels. 

Adding further to the gossip, Nokia is also rumoured to be working on a yet another Windows Phone 8 handset, which besides flaunting a QWERTY side-slider design, will come with a 4-inch WVGA screen.

Despite being designed for separate carriers, rumours clearly indicate that both of the above, will house the same Snapdragon chipset from Qualcomm.

Clearly, the handsets will be able to boast of some rather great efficiency, as the setup that is expected to boost them is the ever-powerful dual core S4 MSM8960 processor.

Last but not the least is a yet another interesting revelation giving out clear hints that Lenovo and ASUS too are jumping on the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon.

If the gossip holds any truth at all, both will seemingly take up the manufacturing of Windows Phone handsets and hence will be added to the list of Windows Phone makers by joining the likes of Nokia, HTC and Samsung.
