Nokia is expected to introduce a new range of affordable Windows Phone 8 Lumia Smartphones at the 2013 Mobile World Congress, according to new reports from Reuters. Sources from within the industry have apparently confirmed that a series of budget-prices Nokia Lumia Smartphones running Windows Phone 8 will be unveiled in order to compete with current low-end marker-leaders including ZTE and Huawei.
The worlds emerging and developing Smartphone markets are fast becoming the most important and lucrative of all – markets it seems Nokia is unwilling to miss out on.
As far as specs and features go, there is little to go on as it stands but chances are we’ll be looking at a series of new Lumia devices built around a similar makeup to that of the Nokia Lumia 620. If accurate, the launch of a several new and affordable Windows 8 Lumia handsets could give both the Finnish company and the WP8 platform the significant push needed to take the global market by storm.
Meanwhile however, we’re also being told to brace for the arrival of a new top-tier Smartphone from Nokia in the form of the Nokia Lumia Eos complete with 41-megapixel camera. If accurate, this would be the first time the company’s fabled Pureview camera technology has been used with a Smartphone running the Windows Phone 8 OS.
And of course, there is still plenty of talk surrounding the idea of Nokia unveiling an all-new tablet PC at the 2013 MWC running either Windows Phone 8 or Windows RT, though such rumors have been repeatedly denied by the company.
