A we all know that although Windows Phone 8.1 is a good update with the right direction, the update is slowly rolling out to users and new hardware that pre-install it is quite rare. As of right now, the only high-end device that has WP8.1 pre-installed is the Lumia 930. Well, these days are coming to an end, as new rumors reported by The Verge about two new devices is on their way to the market.
Unnamed source from The Verge firmly believes that Stephen Elop and his device division of Microsoft has introduced two new phones in an internal presentation that took place earlier this week. One of the two devices has a direct connection to the earlier rumored “Superman,” which has a 4.7 display and a 5MP front-facing camera to follow the selfie trend that other OEMs have gone on. Supposedly, the phone is described as a “selfie device” in his presentation.
The other that was also included in the Elop’s presentation to his employee was the device that has been rumored before, with a high – end lens that popped out of the rear of the device, but selling this as an affordable device. The Verge did not provide us with any information related to the reveal date or specific pricing of the two handsets. However, the news outlet did mentions about an affordable price for both.
Sadly, there is no mention of the project “McLaren,” which further proves the cancelation of the handset.
