New Delhi: Finnish telecom giant Nokia is all set to unveil its smartphone equipped with US software giant Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system at a joint event in New York on September 5.

According to reports Nokia may also unveil a slew of products ranging from tablet computers to other smartphone range.

The struggling Finnish company, whose new smartphone is due to be released amidst reports of the unveiling of the new iPhone 5, has launched the first range ‘Lumia’ smartphones after an alliance with Microsoft.

The company, which in 2008 enjoyed more than 40 percent of the global mobile phone market, has been struggling to maintain its leading position that it enjoyed previously for some time now, as per media reports.

Pictures showing the new Nokia Windows Phone 8 mobile handsets have reportedly been leaked on Twitter.

Pictures, apparently showing the new Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 handsets, were released on Twitter on an account called @evleaks.

The pictures show the handsets, which look similar to Nokia's earlier Lumia models, in a range of colours, including yellow and red.

The same account was used last week to leak images apparently showing new HTC devices, the Telegraph reports.

According to the paper, the larger of the two, the Lumia 920, has a 4.5-inch display and the smaller Lumia 820 has a 4.3-inch display but comes in more colours.
