Microsoft sends out invitation for MWC event on March 2nd

Microsoft sends out invitation for MWC event on March 2nd
Microsoft has started sending out invitations for a press event that it will hold at MWC in Barcelona on March 2nd. Don't expect to see a new flagship Windows Phone model introduced at Barcelona as most reports indicate that a new high-end Lumia model won't be introduced until sometime in September. Indications are that a low-end model in the Lumia 6xx range will be unveiled at MWC.

Another model that might be primed for an sequel at MWC is the Nokia Lumia 1320. Despite its phablet-sized 6-inch screen and a large 3400mAh battery, this is not a high-end phone as evidenced by the 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage onboard the phone. One other report says that we will see the RM-1072 make an appearance at MWC. This is rumored to be a low-cost version of the Lumia 830 with a 5-inch screen offering a resolution of 720 x 1280. An 8.7MP PureView camera is on back and the device is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400. We could see the unnamed phone priced at $275.

We will be in Barcelona for MWC 2015, providing you with the latest news and product announcements. Besides the devices Microsoft plans on introducing on March 2nd, we should see the HTC One (M9) and the Samsung Galaxy S6 unveiled on March 1st. Stay with us!

Thanks for the tip!

The only reason I'm paying attention to this is because I want to see what Microsoft can do with that SD 810 and it's compatibility with Windows Phone 10

Hopefully the rumors are wrong and it is a flagship they have really kept under wraps. HTC can't be the only one with a true flagship windows phone! We need diversity!

Your comment just proves that obviously there is something wrong with you. I mean what if somebody told you I hope all of Arab women are being raped by white man??? That's just wrong, and so what if some asshole wrote on PA site something about Arabs!?! Who cares just ignore it. We the predators have an unique perspective on human race:)

it is possible for Microsoft to introduce a Microsoft branded "Lumia 1030"- 41 mega pixel smart phone with a 5 inch 1080p screen & 1 gig of Ram as a "Windows 10 READY" smart phone to replace the trusty old Nokia Lumia 1020 41 Pixel Windows smart Phone. I still believe that Microsoft is now replacing "ALL" it's Nokia Lumia designed models with Microsoft branded "Lumia" smart Phones and the Newer ones to come will be marketed as "Windows 10 Ready" smart phones. Please take note that Nokia of Finland can start making smart phones again I believe in 2016 so Microsoft does not want confused customers so it has to have all Lumia smart phones rebranded as Microsoft Windows smart phones I also hope Microsoft will introduce at MWC it's lower priced Full Windows Tablets to replace it's discontinued RT OS Tablets the"Surface 2" and the "Nokia Lumia 2520' Tablet. These RT Tablets cost less money to buy than the "Surface Pro line's 3 CPU model Tablets which starting price is a 799 USA dollars, way too high a price for a lot of people.
