Microsoft reportedly to focus more on entry-level Windows Phone handsets at MWC 2015 – no high-end until September

Microsoft has announced that it will be in attendance at MWC 2015, which kicks off in Barcelona, Spain from the 2nd to the 5th of March. Sadly, the software giant hasn’t given any clues on what to expect at the event. Will it lift the lid on an entry-level, mid-range, or high-end device? According to a new report, Microsoft will focus more on entry-level devices until September.


The news comes to us courtesy of Geek on Gadgets. It reports, “Our sources however, have been able to shed some light on what Microsoft have in store, unfortunately it appears that a flagship status phone will not be presented by Microsoft at their event. In fact no high end phones will be presented by Microsoft, our sources claim that Microsoft’s event will mainly involve low-end phones; with the possibility of showcasing a new 6 series device, possibly a successor to the Lumia 625.”

So what should we expect from Microsoft at MWC 2015? It is believed that the Redmond-based firm will lift the lid on the rumoured entry-level Lumia 330 or Lumia 430.

Back to Microsoft’s high-end Lumias, the site claims that there won’t be a high-end device from the software giant until September. This means that, if you want to get your hands on a high-end Windows Phone handset, you’ll have to settle for the Lumia 930 or Lumia 1520.

Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt.
