Later, two very renowned tech Web sites ZDNet and WPCentral also reported that Microsoft has indeed completed the new OS, which has entered the RTM.

Per latest reports, Microsoft will be unveiling its new OS at the end of October. Meanwhile, the Finnish smartphone manufacturer Nokia, in its desperate attempt to catch up with Apple and Samsung, has announced two new Windows Phone 8 devices, Lumia 820 and Lumia 920. The newly released pair of Windows Phone 8 devices come with a higher resolution display, refurbished camera to trim down image blur, and also introduce wireless charging technology.

Additionally, HTC has also sent out invites for a press event that is to be held in New York City on Sept.19, where the company is expected to be releasing a Windows Phone 8 device. HTC, however, hasn't released any major Windows-based smartphone since the launch of Titan 2 in spring.

DigiTimes, the Taiwan-based news agency, recently reported that Acer is also set to launch six new phones in 2013, one of which will run the new Windows OS.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is said to be distributing free Surface tablets and Windows Phone 8 devices among all its employees. However, the company is yet to reveal any specific feature of its new OS.
