The Nokia Lumia 800 is the product of a partnership between Microsoft and the phone manufacturer and it is hoped the device will sell well in Australia.
When it is released in the country next year, the smartphone is likely to be cheaper than Apple's new iPhone 4S, the Sydney Morning Herald noted.
Although no official pricing has been announced yet, the gadget should cost around €420 before tax and subsidies.
One of the ways Nokia is hoping to encourage strong sales of the Lumia 800 is by increasing the number of handsets they sell to retailers, the news provider stated.
The phone manufacturer is also offering more apps than Apple, including free games, maps and music software.
According to the publication, Microsoft and Nokia have described the design as the first “real” Windows phone.
The Finnish brand announced the launch of the Lumia 800 and 710 handsets last week.
