Microsoft reportedly unveiling five Windows 10 phones on September 24
Windows 10 Mobile and new Lumia phones to debut at a separate event in September
Terry Myerson has announced at the WPC 2015 conference that flagship Lumias designed for Windows 10 will be launching soon. The next big event takes place in Berlin in early September and Microsoft has already confirmed a press conference at IFA on September 4.
The event entitled ‘Windows 10 Lights up New Devices’ will be led by Nick Parker – VP of the OEM division. While the event includes the words ‘new’ and ‘devices’, there is evidence that we won’t see new Lumias or Surfaces during that conference, but only tablets and laptops developed by OEM partners. Parker is not involved in development of Lumia phones and the event description doesn’t say anything about phones. The conclusion is that Microsoft will be holding a special, big and separate event for Windows 10 Mobile, where we can see the new line-up in its full glory.
Mobileburn has got reports from their sources that Microsoft will be holding the second event in the United States on September 24. According to the report, the company has prepared to unveil five new smartphones and launch Windows 10 Mobile officially. At this event, presumably led by Terry Myerson, the company is expected to unveil two flagships and three other devices.
Microsoft’s flagships will be running Windows 10 Mobile and will include unique software and hardware features such as a Windows Hello authentication system via Iris Scanner and Continuum for Phones. If the company keeps the Lumia naming scheme using numbers, these phones should be called Microsoft Lumia 940 and Lumia 940 XL. Along with two flagships, Redmond is rumored to be preparing two mid-rangers, which may be called something like Lumia 740 or 840 (XL).
Stay tuned for more information on upcoming Lumia hardware.
