Nokia just unveiled its latest smartphones during the BUILD developer conference, following Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8.1 announcement, but the Lumia 930 is basically a repackaged Lumia Icon. So what else is coming from the company that was just recently swallowed up by Microsoft? Today, a new rumor suggests Nokia is working on a device codenamed “Superman.”
One of the highlight features detailed in a report from The Verge Monday is its front-facing camera. The news outlet suggests the Superman will have a 5-megapixel front shooter, which may be on a par with the 5-megapixel wide-angle lens on the HTC One (M8). The phone is also expected to ship with a 4.7-inch display, but little else is known about the device.
The Verge said it won’t launch for at least a few months, since Microsoft is reportedly planning to release two Windows Phone updates in the coming months, the first of which is set to arrive in June. However, Superman is reportedly going to coincide with the launch of the second update scheduled for sometime after June.
The Verge also notes that it’s possible we won’t see Nokia’s name on the handsets, since Microsoft is only going to own the Lumia branding. We may see it launch as a Microsoft Lumia product or a Microsoft Mobile Lumia phone.
