New Lumia Windows Phones expected in May



Nokia is looking to remind the smartphone industry that its range of Windows Phone 8 devices can mix it with the best of them by holding a special press event on May 14th, which will allow the tech world to "see what’s next" from the Lumia brand. The Lumia 920 and 820 were two of the most popular handsets to make the launch of Windows Phone 8. Although both are more than capable in their respective high-end and mid-range categories, they are now past the six month mark in terms of age. The shelf life of the smartphone is, nowadays, scarcely a year, and Nokia knows that in order to continue the mammoth task of prizing consumers away from iOS and Android, it will need to keep its range of devices fresh and appealing.


Nokia opts to release new handsets nearer the fall, with the Helsinki-based company having favored the October and November months. This speculate that instead of releasing an outright successor to the 920 or 820, the company may instead offer an insight to something different, yet equally as exciting. Word on the street has long since suggested a 41MP PureView Windows Phone could be on the cards, and with the announcement of the Lumia 520 / 620 devices seeming to have covered the low-end of the market. This press event is simply fascinating because it’s anybody’s guess as to what Nokia actually offers to the world.
