    According to evleaks, this coming fall will witness the release of a new Lumia flagship codenamed McLaren. A year from then (Fall 2015), another flagship going by "Talkman" is set for release. Meanwhile, about a year or so from now we can expect the Lumia 1520's successor, codenamed "Cityman."

    This is in addition to some lower and midranged models set for release.

    It seems once again that the dominant carrier will be AT&T, though the next flagship (McLaren) is said to be picked up by T-Mobile and Verizon as well. Good news.

    Well, perhaps we finally get some respite from those who keep clamoring for flagships and better low-mid range phones than the 630.

    They better keep this in track for an early Q4 release, though. And keep 'em in stock in stock everywhere as well. Our collective bodies are ready.

    Never a bad plan for WP consumers to plan upgrades in the fall/early winter.

    Best part:. "The fall flagship, then, will be a device codenamed McLaren. Shipping in time for the holidays, McLaren should see wide release, with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile all reportedly signed up to carry it."

    Yes!!

    We happen to have upgrade up in October. I'll enjoy my Icon until then, then it's time for the first Windows Phone flagship on all three US carriers!

    Thank you, Evleaks. That feels much better. At least there's something high end to look forward to - even if they are just rumors at this point.

    Yup, feel free to wait 5-6 months. I've learned to use my upgrades as soon as they're available.

    I have to pay full retail to me the icon doesn't seem worth the upgrade over the 928 the battery and the lack of micro sd

    If the McLaren is a Microsoft device rather than a Nokia, there is a shot my carrier (Bell Mobility; Canada) will pick it up. I'm thrilled with the prospect of a legitimate flagship device with a sub 5" screen. I'm just hoping the HAAC microphones make it in there along with some sort of Pureview camera tech and a large battery. 2700-3000mah would be ideal. The 3d touch and NYC view features would simply be icing on the cake.

    I'm now on the fence about using AT&T Next for a 930, vs. waiting until November for this with a standard 2-year deal.

    I personally wish the McLaren has a phablet variant with a stylus. Would be perfect(for me at least) for the air gestures

    My wife's phone just got to the end of her upgrade cycle but I bought her a 925 (paid retail for it) about three months ago so the upgrade is just sitting there now. (we are on AT&T). I may use her upgrade to get a new phone and take the sim out of my 820 for it and use it on my line. But to be honest I don't see anything I really would like to have now. By the time they release 8.1/Cyan to the current phones we may have another choice or two. Lets hope so. Microsoft is moving a little too slow for my tastes. Apple, Samsung, HTC, LG and just about everyone else has phones out or about too come out and it will be months before we get any options from Microsoft. Not real happy with the direction Microsoft is taking.

    I'm trying to guess their series number...

    Q4 2014
    Rock -> 530
    Tesla -> 639 (international version of 638?)
    Superman -> 730 (or 735 if Tesla turned out to be 730... I have a good feeling on this and I don't know why)
    McLaren -> 935

    Q1 2015
    Makepeace -> 830
    Dempsey -> 1030
    both devices are still mysterious, right?

    Q4 2015
    Cityman -> 1330 or 1230
    Talkman -> 939

    now the question is: "will they be branded as Nokia Lumia or something else?"

    I'lll have this HTC Radar for 3 years by then.. Uhf. Still don't hate it, though. ;)
    Awesome! I'll probably skip whatever Sony/HTC/LG WP's and get this here McLaren! I'll have to wait until after my friend's iPhone 6 gabbing. If* he gets it, because if he does he won't shut up about it.. :/

    any design notes on these. I hope one is designed like the windows surface phone concept. I would pay serious money for 2 of those as long as they are workhorses under the hood with SD card provisions.

    intuition
    the 1020 was released on July 2013, so 1.5 year span to the 1030 is quite logical considering that the 1020 came 2 years after 808

    now the question is: "will they be branded as Nokia Lumia or something else?"
    They can't be branded "Nokia Lumia". Microsoft doesn't have the right to use the Nokia-brand on any Lumia smartphone that will be presented and released after the 25th of April, as per the terms of the deal with Nokia. The 930 will be the last Nokia-phone.
    This has also a very logical reason: Nokia - the real Nokia, the one that still exists and has all the patents - can return to the smartphone market as of 1st January 2016. And Nokia's new CEO has clearly left the door open to that (along with the fact that the "Technologies" division is directed also towards developing things for "future devices and services").
    So it wouldn't make much sense, from Nokia's point of view, to allow Microsoft to release Lumias in 2015 under the Nokia brand when Nokia can return with true Nokia devices in 2016. Not only that, Microsoft may want to *try* and make a name for themselves in the smartphone business...even though they'll live for quite a while under the shadow of what Nokia was.

    Unless of course everyone just blatantly violates the deal. In which case we might see some less-friendly answers from the likes of Samsung and Google.

    I might consider the Cityman if it will be a really worthy replacement for my 1520. So far, I'm very happy with this beast.

    I'd like the Cityman since I'm interested in getting a phablet. I onto want to wait tat long though.

    I'm hoping that McLaren is the successor to the 1020.
