AdDuplex, a cross-promotion network for Windows apps, provides interesting statistics and insights about Windows Phone on a regular basis. The latest tweets from Alan Mendelevich, company’s creator, give us some early information about what will be included in the upcoming official report.
According to AdDuplex, Windows Phone 8.1 continues to expand its presence and is now a dominant OS version in the Windows Phone market with a share more than Windows Phone 8.0 and 7.X combined.
Information about the Windows devices has also been published and we understand that three unannounced Microsoft Lumia phones have been registered in company’s logs, and they have screens between 4 and 5.7 inches.

We recently speculated that Microsoft might be working on one or more flagship devices, but the chances to see them before the Holidays are low. It is more likely to see the successor to the Lumia 1020 or another premium Lumia at the Mobile World Congress in March 2015 where Microsoft is expected to talk about Windows 10 for phones.
While we are waiting for the next Windows phone flagship, the low-end Lumia devices are dominating the market, as AdDuplex reveals that the top 4 smartphones in the U.S are below Lumia 7xx.
Update: There are four new devices spotted at AdDuplex but non of them looks like a flagship. The four unannounced Lumias are:
1) 4-inch, 800 x 480, hardware buttons, low-end
2) unknown screen size, 854 x 480, low-end
3) 5-inch, 720p, mid-range
4) 5.7-inch, 720p, mid-range, possible successor to the Lumia 1320
