Microsoft teases “super-affordable” Lumia news
Windows Phone has been doing a great job of targeting the budget smartphone market, delivering full-fledged models that often manage to undercut their Android competition while giving users some great bang for their smartphone-buying buck. While we’d still love to see a new flagship-level model, Microsoft’s been serious about keeping new affordable options coming, introducing the Lumia 640 and 640 XL just a couple weeks back. Could the manufacturer already be ready to unveil a new Lumia? That’s what we’re wondering today as the company puts out a teaser for some kind of news tomorrow.
For the moment, Microsoft’s not saying much, only offering to continue the Lumia story for us with insight into “how much goes into a super-affordable Lumia.”
That could be something quite innocuous – maybe a deeper look at those 640 models – but it could just as easily foretell our first glimpse at something new.
Even if this is an all-new model, we’re sure some of you will scoff at the whole budget-focused nature of it; after all, doesn’t the Lumia family have enough of those phones by now? But if Microsoft really does see a hole in its lineup, we’d love to know what it’s got planned to plug it. Check back with us tomorrow for an update on whatever it is Microsoft decides to share.
