Nokia’s Upcoming Smartphone Lineup Leaked [REPORT]

We haven’t heard much rumors or seen actual devices from Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) since the Finnish company closed the sale of its handset division to Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT). But now we know the company’s entire product lineup for the current year as well as 2015. “Well placed sources” told @EVleaks that Microsoft will soon launch two mid-range Windows Phone 8.1 smartphones in the U.S.

Nokia's Upcoming Smartphone Lineup Leaked [REPORT]

What’s the next from Nokia?

Nokia Lumia 930 is unlikely to be launched at any other U.S. carrier except Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ), where it is already selling as Lumia Icon. The mid-range Lumia 635 will reportedly hit AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS), Cricket Wireless and Sprint Corporation (NYSE:S) in either June or July. The device is expected to cost $200 off-contract. It has a 4.5-inch display, Windows Phone 8.1, LTE support and a Snapdragon 400 processor.

The still-rumored entry-level Lumia 530 is expected to arrive on T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) in the summer and on Cricket Wireless in the fourth quarter. It will come preloaded with Windows Phone 8.1. This device will compete with the low-cost Android phones. The next generation of mid to high-end Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) devices will run on Windows Phone Blue GRD1, the update that would come after Windows 8.1. Among those devices, mid-range Tesla will land on AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), and the Superman for Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ). The high-end McLaren will be launched on AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. McLaren will hit the markets “in time for the holidays.”

Nokia has an impressive lineup for 2015

Looking further ahead, Nokia Corporation (NYSE:NOK) (BIT:NOK1V) (HEL:NOK1V) has two more handsets for AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) codenamed Dempsey and Makepeace. The company has planned phablets codenamed Talkman and Cityman for late-summer 2015 release. @EVleaks says that some of these plans may change going forward. But it’s great to see Nokia’s handset team still working hard after the management change.
