Nokia’s product roadmap leaked: new Windows Phones 2014/2015
Evleaks shared on its website a leaked roadmap listing the upcoming Windows Phones in 2014/2015. Starting with the Nokia Lumia 930, Lumia 630 and 635 which are already available in some markets. Lumia 930 is the international version of the Verizon’s Lumia Icon, pre-loaded with Windows Phone 8.1 update. The 930 is Microsoft’ flagship device for the whole 2014, while another top-end Windows smartphone codenamed McLaren will be unveiled in late 2014.
Nokia Rock should launch as Nokia Lumia 530, an ultra-cheap low-entry smartphone which will reportedly arrive at T-Mobile and Cricket Wireless in the third quarter of the year. The phone is said to have a 4 or 4.3 inch display, 5MP camera and 8GB of storage.
The new Windows Phone devices following Nokia Rock will arrive with the official GDR1 update for Windows Phone 8.1 pre-loaded. Tesla and Superman are described as mid-range devices for AT&T and Verizon. We reported earlier about Nokia Superman, a phone focused on front-facing camera capabilities. It is expected to have a 5MP front-facing shooter, 4.7-inch display and Windows Phone 8.1 + Update 1 out of the box.
A new flagship is scheduled for the holiday season 2014. A device codenamed McLaren could be the rumored 3D smartphone that will detect interactions off the-glass. With hand gestures, users will be able to navigate through the menus.
The Information for 2015 is scarce, but we have four planned smartphones – Makepeace, Dempsey, Cityman and Talkman. The first two are expected in spring 2015, Cityman is a phablet, while Talkman is a new Windows Phone flagship, expected in summer 2015.
