Microsoft Invites Media For MWC 2015 Event


MWC 2015 is just about to start in a few days in Barcelona and many tech companies are set to launch their products. Earlier this month, Samsung and HTC sent media invites for their respective launch events at MWC 2015. And now the new owner of Lumia, Microsoft sends invites for their event.
The invitation does not contain much detail or any hint about what Microsoft is planning to launch there. But it is expected to be a mid-range Lumia smartphone, thanks to the rumors. As per the invitation, the event will be held on March at 08:30 AM CET (1 PM IST). Samsung and HTC will launch their respective smartphones prior to Microsoft i.e. March 1st, 2015. 

The invitation was first received by HDBlog website, and says that Microsoft might introduce a low end Lumia device in 6xx series at the event. In the recent past, we have seen many rumors and leaks that give us a peak at Lumia 1320 successor. Its specifications were leaked in December last year and could be named Lumia 1330 or 1335, according to the latest naming system by Microsoft. It is expected to come with some basic specifications that we have seen in many smartphones in the past.

It is also being slated that a ‘lite’ version of Lumia 830 could also be launched with some altered specification. It is said to have an 8.7 MP PureView camera and Snapdragon 400 processor. Besides these, it was also said that Microsoft might announce their flagship phone at MWC 2015 event. But now the rumors say that it will arrive ‘later this summer’.

In the last month, Qualcomm confirmed that Microsoft is one of their partners that will bring smartphones with Snapdragon 810 processor. For the real things, we will have to wait patiently at least till March 2nd when Microsoft will showcase its new products.
