Nokia may be looking to extend its Windows Phone range down to super-low price points, but it’s still got plenty of love for handsets further up the food chain. While its new Lumia 900 flagship is expected to launch in the US within the next couple of weeks, and internationally over the next few months, the company is of course working hard behind the scenes on the next generation of its Lumia devices.
According to a report from The Verge, it looks like Nokia has plans to launch two new Lumia handsets running the next major version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Windows Phone 8, when it arrives later this year. Well-placed sources claim that both of those devices will launch on AT&T, but there’s no info yet as to whether or not other US networks will also offer them.
The devices are referred to by their codenames – ‘Prodigy’ is understood to be a new flagship handset, while the ‘AC/DC’ is believed to occupy the mid-range. It’s likely that both devices will receive Lumia branding when they go on sale, probably before the end of the year.
We recently reported that Nokia is apparently developing a handset with a hardware keyboard, but we don't yet know if this is the Prodigy or the AC/DC, or another device entirely.
