Nokia has already started accepting preorders for their upcoming smartphones – the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710 through their Nokia Priority dealers. Though the preorders have started, there was no official word as to when the handsets would officially be launched in India. Through their Facebook page, Nokia India has given us a slight hint which points to the possible launch date of the smartphones.

The description reads, “Get ready to experience the amazing! Nokia is going to bring the house down this Saturday! Five cities, one amazing experience. It will blow your minds away! We can’t wait for it. Can you? Be there.” The event will be held between 6PM to 9PM simultaneously at Ambience Mall in Gurgaon, SouthCity Mall in Kolkata, GVK One at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad, Korum Mall at Thane in Mumbai and Forum Mall in Bangalore.
