New Nokia Lumia 530 "Rock" to succeed the Lumia 525?

New Nokia Lumia 530
It looks like Nokia is already planning to release a successor to the Lumia 525, which itself was introduced several months ago as a refreshed Lumia 520.

According to @evleaks, there’s a mysterious Nokia Lumia 530 (apparently codenamed Nokia Rock) in the making. The handset's model number strongly suggests that it's related to the Lumia 520 and Lumia 525. Since both the 520 and 525 are low-end, cheap devices, we’re expecting the Lumia 530 to have similar characteristics, perhaps featuring a display of around 4 inches.

As you may have heard, Nokia is reportedly also readying the launch of a Lumia 630 / 635, plus an alleged high-end Lumia 930. All these upcoming handsets will most likely run Windows Phone 8.1, which should be released by Microsoft in April.

While the Lumia 630 already appeared in a few images, for now the Lumia 530 and Lumia 930 remain elusive. What we can assume, though, is that - like the 630 - the Lumia 530 and 930 will have on-screen buttons (since Windows Phone 8.1 now supports this). 

Let's hope we will have more details on these new Nokia Lumias soon.

It will if it sports a flash and a front camera without changing the price.

I thought the 530 came out and the only change is the RAM.

That was the 525 and the only increment was the updated RAM.

Don't worry you will see specs upgrade and same price as 520 or even lower price. Elop mentioned that our device will upgrades more in space n features and will put lower n lower prices.

Nokia sick of people calling their phones "bricks", because Nokia phones clearly aren't bricks - they are more like "Rocks", which are heavier and bulkier than bricks.

Totally agree even though I have only owned Nokia Phones "Rocks" is great way to describe them. If someone mentioned "rock phone" for instance, who wouldn't think of Nokia? I know I certainly would...

525 hasn't even released in my country, yet we already have it's successor. It's good news for me, since I meant to replace my 520. I'm still not interested to buy a flagship WP, yet.

T-Mobile pick up the high end Nokia. Otherwise Jump is not a great deal.

Jump is not a great deal either way... It's just insurance with a fancier name.

Hope that this price is the same as the 525. In Windows OS even budget phones dont lag unlike android budget phones.
