I actually think this one is pretty easy. The big OEMs (Samsung and HTC) have spent large amounts of money on their current designs (HTC One Series, Samsung GS3) so I think that all they will do is make WP8 versions of their current designs:
HTC will have WP8 versions of the One X (720P 4.7"), One S (was qHD but could be 720P or drop down to WVGA) and One V (3.7" WVGA).
Samsung will just make a WP8 version of the GS3 (4.8" 720P, 2GB ram, 16GB/32GB versions with microSD, NFC).
Nokia may just upgrade the hardware on the 800/900 for their new lines.
Open to other ideas???

L900 with a decrease in bezel size add In nfc, hd screen, and A ti omap 5xxx processor would have me sold. I the HTC one s with a hd screen along with a bigger battery running wp8 would be great. As far as samsung sgs3 design but slightly smaller 4.65 inch screen would make me double take

I know most of us don't want refurbished android stuff, but I'm using an HTC rezound right know and I have to say if a WP was running this hardware it would be awe inspiring! Can't wait for WP8!

Also the sensor size is flexible as PureView doesn't mean 41MP, the tech makes just as much sense on 20MP sensor, though going below that probably makes no sense as lossless zoom and oversampling take too much of a hit.

lol, I can see a commercial airing, in Europe, where some ladies are checking out some guys package. They start to flirt with him. You hear a Nokia ring tone, he pulls a PureView out of his pocket, mentos style, and a Nokia logo pops up.

Nokia will bring new designs. The 610 and 710 aren't carbon copies of other Nokia devices, and their line-up is pretty visually diverse. Personally hope they'll pursue at least one design in the vein of the N8 / E7.

All OEMs are going to release a dual or quad core phone, also with an HD screen and lots of tech "candy" like NFC, enough RAM and superb cameras. Top notch everything, although we're gonna see also some low end devices of course like the Lumia 610, which in my opinion are gonna to have at least 1GHz CPU for WP8. Just mt opinion.. :P
Oh yes, and maybe they will just adjust the phones and release a WP8 edition of current phones.. Hardware the same, only the OS different :)

Addon: that hardware which is now in these phones, will "hold on" for a nice amount of time.. Come on, look on the other side, what are people using quad or dual core phones for? Not really much of hard work, nor they're fully taking advantage of all the cores in te phone, I think..

I think Samsung and HTC's hardware will be rehashed (like everyone else said), but I have no idea what Nokia will do. All I know is that it will be hotI own an LG Optimus G but the majority of my posts are on WPCentral. Go figure

(Keep in mind my expieriences are based on me owning a Lumia 800)
I hope Nokia keep the same designs as their current lumia handsets, the larger 900 device and the smaller, more discreet 800 device size.
I'd like to see the curved glass display of the L800 make it's way to the larger device. The lumia 900 just looks like a bulky plain boring block to me. I think with the curved glass screen, it would appear slimmer, sexier.
The display MUST cover a larger area of the face of the devices ("edge-to-edge" displays). This is where the iPhone will be going come october with their new iPhone 5 launch, and it's already a feature of many android phones; thin bezels. Nokia'd 800 has too much 'frame' around the display. Keep the curved polycabonate sides, but stretch the display to cover more of the glass front. This is a MUST. The lumia 800 display feels small when using the browser (this might be because of the low res display though. I'm used to using my iPad :p)
Better speakers. The speaker in my L800 just isnt pleasant. I want a good quality speaker so I can actually enjoy playing music through it. It just sounds noisy.
The vibrator isnt agressive enough. When my phone's volume is down, I rarely feel the phone vibrating in my pocket. The phone is noisy when it vibrates (I've heard this might be something to do with the camera lens being loose?)
The door for connecting the handset to USB needs to go. It's too awkward. You feel scared to use the device while it's plugged in because of how flimsy the little plastic door is. Just go with an open port, but make it look as nice and sleek as the headphone jack port. The door is just silly. It puts me off charging my phone.
Better camera. The camera on my L800 is just not good. The camera needs to rival the quality of the iPhone's camera.

To tel the truth from a business standpoint it sucks that samsung and HTC may end up re branding android hardware for wp8. I but from a business standpoint its a necessary evil the cost would be to great to fully engineer a wp8 device when you already have the necessary hardware to run it. I would rather them take their phones and change the design somewhat but a htc one s type device with a 720p screen would be great. Just like the sgs3 running wp8 would be a great device. me personally I prefer nokia's design and radio know how over both so it's nokia for me
