Nokia CFO: Next Lumia to be a 'hero' phone

0. phoneArena 03 May 2013, 09:09 posted on

We can't wait to see the next Lumia flagship phone, which will probably be the Lumia 928, and it looks like the same goes for Nokia. Speaking to analysts after the company's Q1 earnings call, Nokia's Chief Financial Officer, Timo Ihamuotila, has hinted that there's definitely a reason for us to be looking forward to the next high-end Lumia...

Apparently the culprit is the SG4, as one poster said, "Those phones are blazing, and honestly my old Note 2 was faster than this S4."

But two can play that stupid game:

I don't know what the deal is with companies having to be 1 OS for phones, HTC for example makes both android and windows handsets.

and look how there doing, not very well luckily for them they seem to be improving with the HTC one (great device)

nokia are focusing on one os to come back as major players in the mobile world and its working.....for a fanboys like yourself who loves to mouth off about how you have so much choice with android to then be begging and moaning for nokia to go android and even more to slate every other android device that isnt samsung your pretty one way and biased

your view is android is perfection and samsung are gods......we all know your this way we have seen your comments

If you buy either Samsung or HTC your an idiot. Both the HTC One and S4 are terrible devices. Extremley disappointed in 2013 phones so far. I have had a Nexus 4 since launch and I see no reason to switch besides sharper displays.

Thats because nothings running. Get a low end android 4.0 or higher device and run at minimal task and it will be smooth.

If you want a smooth phone get an intel powered one. It will fail at games but will be smooth and multitask like a champion.

Yeah, but look at where HTC is now. Android = Samsung, WP = Nokia.. So HTC really stands below Samsung and Nokia both ways, even though they do make great phones. That's why Nokia choosing WP only was the best option, like chaoticrazor best put it.

The people buying the phones care, common sense should have answered that for you. But i guess i gave you too much credit. And i never said Windows phones don't lag. I was just showing the troll what he said is false. More reading comprehension please.

better features? lol android is just costumizable! nothing special! besides even though its already at version 4.2 its still laggy as hell!!

a REAL awesome OS is that its optimize even to run on an ancient technology yet it is modern! symbian can do what android can! nokia just need to rewrite symbian!!

Meego is way better option than symbian and WP! but heck nokia just ditch it!

Thats a lie Kozza, but I agree to a certain point, android stutters on some apps.

IDK. From everything that has leaked, the L928 seems like a warmed over L920. Almost like a L920S. I think the real 'hero' phone will be the one that includes the 41+ Mp PureView sensor. That one will most likely launch Fall, 2013 on AT&T.

Nokia is definitely capable of doing something great in camera department.. But it's not everything, they need to strengthen other aspects too... Love to see competition..

If the leaked pics of the Lumia 928 are the real deal, then I don't see that being the hero. It's more Clark Kent than Superman.

@charming... What feature are you talking about on Android that's better? I'm sorry but customer satisfaction rate regarding WP and Nokia is pretty darn good. And Nokia already have features missing in Android.

Nokia always make great phones but windows lack of apps is killing them! And also samsung's great marketing strategy is something nokia should really emulate!

The lack of apps in Android didn't killed it; quite the contrary: it became no 1 selling platform.
Why do you think WP can't do the same considering it's app store is growing faster than the play store did a few years ago?!

It has much more to do than with apps, that is only one of the problems with it.
