I, for one, am truly excited for whatever Nokia has to display. They have some of the best support, best phone build qualities, and quirky incentives to use their phones over competitors.

FavBrowser says:

They will reveal a tablet with zero cores and no battery. It's so advanced that it feeds itself from tears of Apple fanboys

kalo88 says:

jmajid says:

Andreas H says:

First few years to be honest :)

Simon Tupper says:

Nightmares are a serious business as a kid.

navidee says:

Good I can read the news when I wake at 5:30am for work

That's 2:30am for me. I guess I'll be up late tonight.

xconomicron says:

If you guys can't make it the event...here are the specs now! 
 

Rumored specs from a Nokia employee: multilayer graphene sensor of 27mp in size of 1/2.46″ with a
variable aperture lens ranging from 1.6 to 2.6 and a specialized camera
software for low- and high-light situations. 925 features an AMOLED
screen in resolution of 1280×768. Other specs excluding battery size,
material, size and weight of 149g are similar to 920.

 

jmajid says:

yea, just linked to the MNB site from the Catwalk forum here on WPC
I think its a stretch...but it does lay the path for a HUGE sensor with virtually no hump in the EOS later this year...

xconomicron says:

I was thinking the same!  If this is true...wow is all I can say!

vlad0 says:

Well its expected for the EOS to be better than the 808.. and persoanlly I can't imagine how they plan on doing this without making it bigger, but maybe that is the answer.

xconomicron says:

Yea...speaking of the EOS...now that I've heard the specs for this phone...If it does in fact include a multilayer graphene sensor...I can't help but to think that they could possibly incorporate a larger battery, now that the sensors aren't so big?

Thanks Nokia for choosing London. Can't wait, just got a 920 and it's build and camera are superior! But please please Nokia don't make the same mistake you made last time making it exclusively to crap EE. Make it available everywhere in all colours and see Nokia dominate and spread like our once British Empire did.

111san says:

well the event is only for an hour so not much more than the single updated 920 in terms of hardware....hope stupid investors arent expecting too much out of it since the stock has risen quite a bit the last week...some other factors like upgrades not withstanding this event is what everyone is concentrating on

ldp247 says:

I have a feeling that Nokia will also debuting a tablet in addition to the new phones.

RaRa85 says:

I really can't justify waking up at 5 in the morning to watch the event live after I have repeatedly hit my alarm at 8:30. Maybe I'll start being a morning person tomorrow.lol Gotta start somewhere right?

vlad0 says:

Nokia has the ability to surprise.. i would imagine that if they are doing a 6 hour event, there is going to be something big tomorrow.
Maybe there will be new sensor tech, or.. I don't know, but I am hoping we can see something new from that amazing R&D department.

Nokia, please, SURPRISE me with amazing new apps e games announcements!! :)

erzhik says:

We all know that WPC already know what device(s) is going be to unveiled. Just break an embargo please. Like for 5 min. :)

xankazo says:

Pretty exciting times!

nokia can only innovate so much now. the 920, 928, and apparently the 925 are all about camera improvements and few other changes. they gotta release new products that are totally different from previous ones. but then it goes to MS as well. they already should've had 1080p up and running. and should add support for more power under the hood. when all new flagships are running snapdragon 600s and sport 2gigs ram, windows phones are stuck with snapdragon s4 and merely 1gig ram. i'm not saying that's bad. but honestly it's not future proof. at some point sooner or later, i'm afraid wp8 devices will face what wp7 faced.
seeing competitors like galaxy s4, htc one, nokia is just refreshing it's old product. where is the innovation bar they set with the 920?
come on nokia!
i hope the 925 is more than just camera improvements and few other tweaks.

Switchke says:

It will be able to make you breakfast

erzhik says:

They can do so much until Microsoft makes some serious updates to the OS.

precisely.
nokia betted everything on WP. it's doing all it possibly can. but MS needs to be equally responsive.

the competition is getting stronger. they just can't sit back ease.
specially since WP is still not as established as iOS or android. and Lumia line has to beat iPhones and Galaxies.

CronGM says:

It's gonna be 4:00 AM here when it starts... Challenge accepted.

LYZ1999 says:

Am I the only one that doesn't have to stay up late? The Nokia event starts at 5pm here in Singapore :)

nikhilr51 says:

5pm for me in Perth as well :)
Woooo fellow GMT +8 bro :)

12Danny123 says:

NZ!!!!!!! 9pm GO KIWI's

chunky2055 says:

2 hours to go.....!!!!!!!

abel920 says:

90 minutes!

jomarr says:

Nokia is going to SLAY wigs!

hacer619 says:

when the event starts everyone listens
 

Chef316 says:

One hour and 20 minutes left!!!

Chef316 says:

It's gunna be 2am here :-(

Suedezu says:

I really hope to hear a lot about software improvements to the existing Luma range. I want to know when GDR 2 is coming and what's bringing to the table. WP8 badly needs polishing touches (camera software improvments, battery performance improvements, mail, browser etc) to stay on par with iOS and Android.

camptime says:

If this phone does not support wireless charging It's not going to be easy to upgrade. Only thing that might change my mind would be a 64GB version.

that was such a boo event! nothing new. just a new camera app, and aluminium body phone.
where the hell is "innovation"?
nokia will be finished one day if this goes on!

Why is it only 16 gig storage and no SD slot??
