Microsoft hasn’t said much about its upcoming Lumia handsets but we already do know that it’s going to release two high-end Lumia smartphones this year. They might not be the only handsets that Microsoft is working on, apparently the company has as much as six new Lumia handsets in the pipeline now. The company has not yet detailed when these devices will be released.
This information comes from popular Twitter leaker @evleaks who revealed through a tweet that there are at least six upcoming handsets from Microsoft.
An update to the Lumia lineup is long overdue so it would make sense for the company to overhaul the entire lineup, offering high-end, mid-range and low-end devices.
It’s important to note that Microsoft has also made a significant change, it has taken a big hit on its Nokia acquisition and fired thousands of employees from that division. There are hints that the company will simplify its device lineup focusing mainly on one or two models in the short term.
This might very well be the last major update to the Lumia lineup before Microsoft turns back the dial, it remains to be seen though how Microsoft spreads the launch of these handsets throughout what’s left of 2015.
