Tipsters have told Bloomberg that Nokia will be showing the phones off for the first time at the Nokia World event in Helsinki that takes place over September 5 and 6. If that’s true, Nokia could have its phone out before Apple unveils its new iPhone, itself rumored to be out in mid-September.

An independent rumor bubbling up at the website Know Your Mobile via Concept Phones suggests that a future “Nokia Lumia X” device may have an optical zoom feature built into a rotating top. If that’s true–that could separate this mythical Nokia’s Lumia X model from other high-end smartphones which largely rely on lower quality digital zoom.
