While many of us expected Nokia to come back to handset business, it seems Nokia is thinking something different, some ahead and it looks like a box, very close to a setup-box and even closer to what Apple TV looks like. This is the second teaser they did, the first came with all hands up, which we thought has to do something with wearable, but this looks totally different.
WANT TO SEE #MORELUMIA ?
Microsoft has posted a teaser on Facebook which hints at a new Lumia announcement coming on November 11.
The post includes a close up of a front-facing camera and the date 11.11.2014. Along with the image, the Nokia Facebook page cryptically states the motto “Big on experiences” and the hashtag #MoreLumia’.
This might be the youth-oriented midranger that has leaked before with Microsoft Lumia branding. This one is supposed to sport a 5″ HD screen, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon chipset, 1 GB RAM, and a 5 MP camera. In any case, the date given is 11.11, so not much more to wait before all is revealed.
Furthermore, on Microsoft’s website it adds, “Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone”, suggesting that we’re in store for a mid-range device.
Be sure to remain tuned for the announcement next week.
Microsoft is officially replacing its Nokia branding with Microsoft Lumia on the company’s Windows Phones. The software giant is “looking forward to unveiling a Microsoft Lumia device soon,” and, Nokia’s existing phone websites and social network accounts will now be transitioned over to the Microsoft Lumia branding in the coming days. Microsoft has also revealed that it will use the company’s name on the front and rear of future Lumia devices in a simple replacement of the Nokia branding.
While Lumia phones will drop the Nokia brand entirely, Microsoft still has a 10-year license to use the Nokia brand on basic phones. “Microsoft will continue to sell Nokia-branded, entry-level category of phones, such as the Nokia 130,” explains Tuula Rytilä, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Phones at Microsoft. “We have licensed the Nokia brand for such devices.” It’s not clear how many of these types of devices Microsoft will continue to focus on. Microsoft is killing off the majority of Nokia’s feature phones in favor of Windows Phone, with only the very basic mobile phones still likely to be produced in future
