Nokia slashes price of Lumia 1020 in Europe: could this be in preparation for a new high-profile Lumia?
It is the timing of this latest price cut that is particularly interesting. First, because it comes just as Nokia is about to hold an event, where it's expected to unveil new Lumia devices. Second, due to the fact that phone makers use price cuts like this one to clear inventory before the arrival of a refresh of a device, so we have some reason to think this could signal a Lumia 1020 successor.
All in all, we should say that we could only speculate whether this is indeed freeing the way for a new Lumia flagship, but luckily, Nokia’s event that could answer this question starts later today. We’ll be covering everything around the anticipated Windows Phone 8.1 launch and the new Lumias, so stay tuned.
