AT&T already has pretty much the biggest coup possible for a carrier interested in Windows Phone, the 41-megapixel PureView Lumia 1020. For many WP8 fans, that’s going to be the only phone they need to see, but having some more options never hurts. Right now at AT&T, that means choices like last year’s Lumia 920 or HTC 8X, or going prepaid with the Lumia 520. This afternoon, a new rumor suggests that the carrier’s aiming to bring yet another Lumia device to its stable, with word that it could be getting the Lumia 925 next month.
Supposedly, AT&T has eyes on adding the 925 to its selection sometime in mid-September, though we’ve yet to hear a precise date. When that happens, the currently $100-on-contract Lumia 920 would be discounted down to $50, with the 925 taking the new $100 spot.
Compared to the 920, you’d be making the downgrade from 32GB to 16GB storage, but at the same time reaping the benefits of upgraded camera hardware and the move from an LCD to an OLED display.
We haven’t seen any sort of leaked roadmap or anything supporting these claims, but WPCentral shows supreme confidence in its source, and very much expects this to play out as described.
