Nokia could be about to lift the lid on new smartphone contenders this month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), as speculation over gadget-makers' plans for the event continues to ramp up.
According to a source familiar with what goes on at Espoo, Nokia’s MWC press call will be marked by at least one new top-end smartphone. Intriguingly, the tech deepthroat apparently didn’t specify which operating system it’ll run, but only a loon would bet on anything other than a Windows Phone.
More intriguingly, he also disclosed that the handset will “run an unusual software feature normally found only on high-end smartphones”.
That suggests to us that it could herald a new Drive-style service specific to Nokia Windows phones, as the phone-maker attempts to further distinguish its devices from the WP herd.
As far which phone will be unveiled, the smart money right now must surely be on the much-rumoured, but as yet unconfirmed Lumia 910.
Billed as a European version of the US-only Lumia 900, the 910 will reportedly feature the same 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display and 1.5GHz processor but will swap the 900’s eight-megapixel snapper for a 12-megapixel number.
