Road map of expected Windows Phone releases discovered
posted by Alan F. / May 05, 2013, 10:44 PM
Nokia, of course, will be releasing one to as many as three handsets on May 14th during their press event in London. The Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon is pretty much a gimme. The question is whether the Nokia Lumia 925, as rumored, will also be unwrapped during the event. And there is also the hope that the Nokia Lumia EOS and its 808 PureView-like 41MP camera sensor will also be introduced at the same time. The Reddit post also mentioned the Samsung Chronus, which was mistakenly labeled in the post as a Windows 8 notebook when it is supposedly a aluminum clad Windows Phone 8 handset.
We mentioned at the beginning of this article that one of the models listed on the road map was a 5 inch, FHD device. This is coming from Chinese manufacturer Huawei which purportedly will offer a Windows Phone 8 flavored version of its Android powered Huawei Ascend D2. This is expected to be called the Huawei Ascend WQ 5 and will be equipped with the same 13MP snapper on back that is seen on the Ascend D2.
Will we see all of these models in the June through August time frame as the Reddit poster claims? First up is the Nokia event in London which will be here before you know it.

well that can be sorted in coding unless developer left the game unoptimized if it was ported many games were like that then they got optimized for low rams and u cant have a phone with no compromize and still have lowest pricepoint do u want them to remove camera :P

Again, different OSes call for different hardware specs. You can't compare WP's flagships to Android's solely based on RAM. The software architecture is completely different, and you'd be wrong to think that WP "needs" more than 1GB RAM in its current release.

Apart from Nokia, i'm also interested in what HTC brings. I was actually surprised by the HTC 8X. It was as good as a Nokia phone, in terms of the build. It felt awesome in hand and felt thinner than it actually is. The choice of materials was awesome, too. I hadn't had the chance to see a Samsung or a Huawei Windows device, so don't know much about them.

who wants to bet that one of the 5" devices is a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Windows phone 8 on it? :P (just like the ATIV S was largely an SIII with WP8 on it)
