The deadline is near for Lumia, as new rumors intimate that Microsoft might stop the brand. According to WinBeta, a source inside Microsoft claims that the company will discontinue selling off all Lumia handsets by the end of the year.
After Microsoft stopped the release of Lumia due to which few devices left in the market. It makes sense, as the handset has been dropping per quarter in exchange share, giving it a less expensive proposal for developers. Microsoft has also been selling Lumia devices with buy-one-get-one offers and other discounts schemes.
This does not show that the Windows 10 for Mobile is dead. Microsoft has two main update lists in 2017 and has been supporting third-party companies to resume making promoting devices.
Reports continue to flow everywhere about the chance of a Surface-branded phone. Despite it’s resembling like that project was either sold to the end of 2017 or has been removed away. Laura Butler, Microsoft’s Director of Engineering at Windows Fundamentals, has been intimating that something might be in the products.
Microsoft’s mobile phone brand Lumia was first launched in 2011 and set itself alone by holding a clear and manageable UI that transmitted information without processing apps. Over the years, it is evolved under Nokia and picked up small market share time by time. But after Microsoft bought Nokia’s phone division, and after new CEO Satya Nadella discharged most of the employees, the brand seems to be a farce.
After the introduction of the Lumia 950 and 950XL last year, Microsoft attempted to come back into the platform by refreshing Windows Phone. The operating system was basically restored and operates a lighter version of Windows 10. Continuum was also introduced. Continuum enables users to connect their Windows handset with monitor and run a lighter desktop version of Windows 10.
Unluckily, a buggy launch, delaying updates, minor app support, and the absence of stimulating devices has ended Windows 10 for Mobile. Fans of Windows Phone are now setting all their beliefs on a Surface Phone, whenever, or if ever, that happens.
Presently, only Microsoft can rebuild its mobile division, and if it plans to do so, it will demand the complete influence and assistance of the company.
