If you are wondering what happened to those lively Lumia smartphones and if they will ever be back in the game, there's news that Microsoft is set to host a hardware launch event in October where two new Lumia phones are set to be launched.
Chinese website WPDang confirmed that apart from the Lumia phones, Microsoft will also be launching a Surface Pro 4 tablet, probably a Surface phone and the Microsoft Band 2.
As per reports, Microsoft is planning to launch two new premium phones named Cityman and Talkman which will be compatible with the new Windows 10 mobile OS. Even though Nadella has so far stayed mum on these phones, Unleash The Phones reported that Cityman will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, an octa-core processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP and 5MP cameras and a 3,300 mAh removable battery.
On the other hand, Talkman will contain a smaller 5.2-inch QHD display and will feature an octa-core processor, 32GB internal storage, 3GB RAM, 20MP and 5MP cameras and a lighter 3,000 mAh removable battery.
Having suffered huge losses from its smartphone business earlier this year, Microsoft is now planning to launch the fewest phones possible to keep the business afloat.
Microsoft's new strategy implies that whether you are a low-range, mid-range or flagship phone buyer, Microsoft will have a phone for you that'll rival similarly-ranged products but also will be the fruit of investments that would have otherwise been distributed to several phones within the same price range.
You will also save yourself from getting confused between a long range of phones and your phone will also be up to date with the Windows 10 mobile ecosystem, an experience that only Apple offers with its iOS infrastructure.
