Accompanying this, for the first two weeks, will be a gift bundle worth £130.
It contains an additional wireless charger for recharging on the go (plus the version in the retail box); the Nokia Bluetooth Mini MD-12 speaker, and a voucher for £20 of free apps from the Windows store.
Nokia has said its first high-end phone to run Microsofts’ Windows Phone 8.1 will be available with Vodafone, EE, Phones4U, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco and Amazon.
These will be in the colours of bright orange, bright green and black – where Phones4u will exclusively be stocking the white edition.
This is for a phone that has a 5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 screen, with a 441 PPI and good outdoor readability, thanks to Nokia’s ClearBlack display tech.
It is powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
On the rear is a 20-megapixel camera, with optical image stabilisation and ZEISS optics.
There is also the SensorCore tech built-in, with its low-power motion sensor, aiding in tracking activities, with minimal power use.
Windows Phone 8.1 brings in the Action Centre notifications to the OS, along with the voice activated personal assistant Cortana - due to arrive at a later date.
