MWC 2014 is always the most exciting show of the year, and manufacturers are preparing to show off their latest and greatest (while others are continuing to stay away from the show floor and focus mostly on their own special events). Thankfully, a lot of phone and tablet makers will be there, including Nokia, which already sent out official press invites. The Nokia X (ex Normandy) is expected to be there alongside some other phones rumored, like the Lumia 1520V (or Lumia 1520 mini).
According to unnamed sources, Nokia is preparing an entire series of smartphones running Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 refresh, Windows Phone 8.1. Late April is what we’ve most recently heard about concerning Windows Phone 8.1′s launch window, but that shouldn’t stop an OEM like Nokia (especially now that its Devices division is Microsoft-owner) to show off its brand new crown jewels.
Both high-end and entry-level phones are expected, according to the report, including the Lumia 1820, a phone we heard about back in November. The report quotes unnamed sources claiming knowledge of some of the specs on the Lumia 1820, like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, and the 5.2-inch form factor with a qHD (we’re not sure if we’re talking qHD or QHD — 2K — here) display and a 3400mAh battery.
The Lumia 1520V we mentioned at the top is also expected to be there with its 4.45-inch rumored display and 14MP camera, and so is the 6-inch Lumia 1525. We’ll be there in Barcelona to see how much of this turns out to become reality.
