Nokia to Announce Three Lumia Smartphones at MWC 2014?
We know that Nokia is holding a press conference on February 24 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, but there is no hint of what to expect until now. The latest rumors suggest that Nokia is planning to announce three Lumia devices at the event.
Sources in Taiwan's handset supply chain told DigiTimes that Nokia will announce a new flagship device, the Lumia 1820 which will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, a 5.2-inch QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) display, and a 3,400mAh battery.
The current Windows Phone GDR3 update only supports 1080p displays, but the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 update to be revealed in April may bring support for higher resolution displays.
Following in the footsteps of its Android counterparts, Nokia is also said to release a smaller variant of the 6-inch Lumia 1520. The smaller variant, known as the Lumia 1520V, will sport a 4.45-inch display and comes with a 14-megapixel rear camera.
The third alleged handset is the Lumia 1525, although DigiTimes did not provide any specs of the device. A tweet by a new and yet unproven leaker hints that the Lumia 1525 will come with a 6-inch QHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
Besides the three Lumia devices, Nokia is also expected to unveil the Android-powered "Normandy" smartphone at MWC 2014. HardwareZone will be there at MWC 2104, so stay tuned to our website for the latest updates.
