Microsoft has been working round-the-clock on its mobile first strategy lately and the new Windows 10 OS is a good example of it. The company has confirmed its presence at the MWC event this year and the rumour mills are already spinning with the new information.
According to a new rumour by Chinese publication WPDang, Microsoft is set to announce two new Lumia phones at the coveted mobile-centric event, WinBeta reports. What's really special about these phones is the OS they will run on -- Microsoft's latest Windows 10.
The publication reveals that the two handsets are going to be an ally to the entry-level and mid-range lineup, which looks to strengthen Microsoft's position in the emerging markets.
Microsoft's sales increased by 28% in the low-end Lumia smartphone segment compared to last year by selling 10.5 million devices. Continuing the journey on the well-established path seems a sensible move on behalf of Microsoft, which is still on the verge of gaining dominance in the competitive smartphone industry.
Microsoft will be hosting an event at Mobile World Congress in Fira Gran Via, Barcelona from March 2-5. The company hasn't confirmed the details of any new product launches but it is highly-expected of the software giant to bring some new devices.
With the two rumoured Windows 10 Lumia devices, Microsoft will be unleashing a preview of what the new OS will look like in action. However, the fans are expecting a flagship launch during the event after the Lumia 930 was released during MWC 2014 event. Even so, there will be other Windows 10 phones from Acer at MWC, so at least we are certain to get the first glimpse of the much-talked-about OS.
