    Seriously, just show up. The Lumia 830 doesn't count. The last real flagship smartphone Microsoft had for showing off what they (and Nokia at the time) are capable of was the Lumia 1020. That was announced in July of 2013. That was ages ago, and 2014 is almost over. Nothing in 2014 really tops that phone especially in terms of camera innovation and that includes non-Windows phones. The Lumia 930 and Icon don't have glance mode, so they're out… and everything else had some other sort of compromise. I've even started to see articles claiming that Microsoft has given up on high-end ...

    Just last night we were thinking about that supposedly-canceled next-gen Microsoft Windows Phone handset that would have introduced a new “3D Touch” user interface, the smartphone codenamed McLaren. Some of that UI stuff might end up living on in Windows 10, but what of the hardware itself? Well, like we said, there have been pretty adamant rumors claiming that McLaren has been scrapped, with Microsoft moving on to other things. But even if the phone as a commercial product's not happening, images of a purported prototype have already leaked, revealing a very Lumia-1020-looking design ...

    The Windows Phone handset codenamed McLaren isn't happening; despite all the effort put into its rumored “3D Touch” interface, Microsoft has apparently moved on from those hardware plans. But to hear a new report, aspects of the phone's software may survive and make their influence felt in the forthcoming release of Windows 10. One such feature is tipped to involve Live Tiles, and could offer a new “exploding,” “flyover tile” experience, developed under the name Mixview. While specifics about the implementation may easily change between now and when Windows 10 for phones starts ...

    One of the long-overdue updates for the Lumia brand is probably the most important. Just as we've seen the legacy of the Lumia 920/925 revived in the new Lumia 930 (Icon), we've spent the last couple of weeks wondering what the future of the successor to the Lumia 1020 will be. Surely updating the world's best smartphone camera isn't an easy job, but with rumors of the codename Lumia McLaren being canceled by Redmond, we were already beginning to worry. Today we find the first leaked photos of what we expect to be the Lumia 1030, and according to the source, there is more here than meets ...

    So far, interacting with your smartphone by waving around your hands in the air hasn't really caught on as a killer feature. Samsung's been doing it for a while now, but not in a way that has found much acclaim. And Amazon appears to be considering sometime very similar for its own smartphone, expected to launch in just a couple weeks. We've also heard talk about Nokia's interest in this kind of tech, with rumors that a phone codenamed Goldfinger could introduce us to the company's 3D Touch system. Goldfinger itself may never see the light of day, but upcoming devices are still tipped to ...
