Pocket-lint can reveal that Nokia is to unveil a new mobile phone on Tuesday 26 January - just a day ahead of Apple's media event which promises a tablet device and possible iPhone news.

The launch has been confirmed to Pocket-lint by Nokia's UK boss Mark Loughran at the press event that saw the announcement of free Ovi Maps navigation for Nokia smartphones.

Although we can reveal news of the launch, Nokia's public relations staff stepped in to stop Loughran from unveiling any more details about the new phone.

So, what would you like to see from Nokia with this new launch? Are the Finns on the right track with the new wave of touchscreen devices? Do music-focused phones appeal? Could we see a special GPS edition considering the recent Ovi news? Have your say in the comments box below and we'll reveal all on the 26th.

UPDATE: It's a 16GB (i.e., smaller) version of the X6.
