We all would agree on the notion that Windows Phone hardware has not made any major progress since several months. Yes, we have witnessed the launch of some of the notable handsets, including the Lumia 830, which is an amazing mid-range device and Lumia 532, which is good enough for the entry-level market. It has been 9 months since the launch of a notable Windows-based smartphone, known as Nokia Lumia 930. Isn’t it high time for Microsoft to provide us with another impressive flagship?
Sadly, a Windows-based high-end smartphone is not going to come anytime soon. As hinted during the press conference, Terry Myerson, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft, said that, “flagship Windows phones will be coming later this year.” he said. Myerson also mentioned about the Mobile World Congress and the Microsoft Build conference, both the events will be organized in March and April respectively. The aforementioned events might hold major releases by Microsoft, although we are not sure if it will unveil any high-end Windows phones at either of the events.
As understood by the face of it, Microsoft is going to delay the launch of new high-end phones until Windows 10 is ready to be launched. With a mix of powerful software and hardware, Microsoft could possibly steal the show. Although the timeline for the launch is too long, but we hope the wait will be worth it!
