Mobile World Congress, the largest mobile convention of the year is slated to take place from March 2nd to the 5th; held in Barcelona Spain as usual. Microsoft have announced that they will be present, however they haven’t dropped any hints about what we might expect from them.
Our sources however, have been able to shed some light on what Microsoft have in store, unfortunately it appears that a flagship status phone will not be presented by Microsoft at their event. In fact no high end phones will be presented by Microsoft, our sources claim that Microsoft’s event will mainly involve low-end phones; with the possibility of showcasing a new 6 series device, possibly a successor to the Lumia 625.
It’s possible one of the devices showcased will include the leaked “Microsoft” branded device that appeared a while back (seen above). Microsoft might also unveil a second low-end Lumia phone, which leaked yesterday; that we current believe will be called the Lumia 330, or possible the 430 (should Microsoft drop Nokia’s aversion to the number 4).
In terms of a flagship device, given the recent unearthing of the cancelled McLaren device, which was cancelled due to production difficulties with its 3D touch technology; we can also confirm that Microsoft don’t have a flagship device slated for release anytime soon. In fact should Microsoft stick to their current time-frame, don’t expect to see a flagship status device till late 2015 (around September). Until then the Lumia 930 and 1520 will be forced to carry the high-end battle against the likes of the iPhone 6, the Note 4 and the upcoming Galaxy S6 and LG G4.
