Nokia Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) unveiled the Lumia 925 this week, and it’s likely that we’ll see even more devices from the smartphone maker in the very near future. After all, we saw less expensive versions of the Windows 8 Lumia handsets within months of the company’s higher end models.
We’ve also seen a virtually constant stream of devices from Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) in recent months, including the Lumia 928 and the upgraded Asha 501.

Is An Expansion Of Nokia’s Lumia Line Upcoming?
Now there’s speculation that we’ll see an even greater expansion of the Lumia line in the upcoming months. The Lumia 925 is the metallic version of the company’s 928 handset, so while this isn’t a significant upgrade for the 920, it does hint at better things being around the corner.
The fact that the 925 has an upgraded SmartCam which takes 10 photos at once hints at how close Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) may be to releasing the long-rumored Lumia EOS, which is expected to have the best camera we’ve seen on a smartphone yet. We also might see a Lumia phablet.
Carrier Endorsements For Nokia’s Lumia Line
We’re also hearing good news in terms of the numbers of carriers which are planning to support Nokia’s Lumia line. Carriers around the world, including the world’s largest carrier China Mobile, which even Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is still finalizing a deal with, are pledging their support of Nokia’s Lumia phones.
