    I'm hoping Microsoft will announce a new Windows 10 Mobile phone that will be shipping on January 22nd, and it will have an 8-core, 2.8GHz processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, all possible sensors to be able to get the job done, and a 52+MP camera that has a 1.75" sensor, and will sell for only $99.99 unlocked and off contract, with all carrier frequencies for all countries including frequencies for 4G LTE, and no carrier exclusive crap.

    4.7" screen size for me, please! (That's my sweet spot for my hand size.)

    Yeah, $99.99 MSP, with Amazon, Radio Shack, or someone having a pre-order sale if you order it on the 21st, you get it for $39.99, limit of 10. I'd buy 10. ;-) And sell all but 2 on the 22nd, for a profit of course.

    Anyone else want a deal like that? Yeah, I know it's not going to happen, but as long as we're making up what we think we're going to see happen, might as well have a good time doing it.

    I don't understand why people argue about the fact that Windows Phones (most of the time) are underpowered. That is just a fact! I know that WP runs smooth on low-end hardware NOW, but maybe not in the future. Just look at the "Hey Cortana" feature that only runs on high-end processors due to the fact that old processors just can't keep up with the new updates. Maybe WP doesn't need the high-end hardware now, but the future does. If you spent 600 dollars on a phone off-contract (which is the way to go here in Belgium), you expect that the phone will run for at least 2 years!

    My expectations are lower. I would jump to buy a 1020 with updated CPU and 64gb of storage and Windows 10. Maybe 10% slimmer and lighter with 4.75" screen. That should be doable given the fact that the 1020 was released a year ago. Oh and it has time traveling capabilities.

    Give me 1020 with faster (faster CPU) camera, 1080p IPS display and 8.1 Denim, and I'll be happy.

    I don't know what the future holds,
    but i believe that they have a few surprises for us.
    I don't know what, but early last year MS and Canon had a few things together concerning patents.
    Canon is wel known with there printers and camera's,
    wel a printer in a smartphone is not so brite so we can rule that one out,
    so what stays is the camera.
    Keep that in mind, and that with all the camera apps they developing.............
    I wouldnt be the least surprised when they come with a killer camera in the next generation phones.

    For storage, well more mega pixels and higher quality video's needs more storage.
    So 32 or 64 GB wouldnt soon be enought, the limited storage in the cloud is the same thing.
    But you can always pay for extra storage in the cloud..........keeps the money going.
    Of course you can back them up on a pc or what ever, but we are creatures of habit and people are quite lazy.
    That's one end, the other end is that they are going for larger storage,
    64 or 128 Gig but that makes the phones to expendable for the mainstream market, so they leave the option open for extra storage like Sd cards.
    I for one think they go for the last solution.
    The problem is speed, SD cards are well known that most cards can handle fast video recording for a long period of time.
    Solution for that is to save video to the phone memorie first and copy it later in the background to the sd
    so speed is no longer a issue then.

    Maybe not this year, most stuf is stil a legacy from nokia.
    But soon they are bringing out 100 percent fulbreed microsoft phones.
    Thats the moment they wil drop full suport on the older lumia's ( what is already hapening with some wp8 devices with the denim update ), they simply dont have a choice, move up or move out.
    When 64 bits cpu is going to be mainstream its finished for this generation Lumia's, except for some miner updates.

    So the future windowsphones are going to be completely different of what we have now.
    My guess is that the next gen highend lumia's going to have 3 or 4 gig ram, 128 gig storage,
    64 bits octa cpu and is a 20mp cam mainstream just like 5 mp selfie cam.

    But not in this year ;-)

    My contract, on AT&T, with an HTC 8x was up in December 2014. I'm still waiting for an upgrade from Microsoft. The 830 has a Snapdragon 400 and the 1520 is too big for me. I know Windows runs buttery smooth on the 830, but I want a 5" 1080p phone with an 800 processor or higher, and 128 gb sd card support. I'm not saying Microsoft has to make the phone, I'm just saying I will not buy a phone from them unless it has at least those specs. The clock is ticking because the two year old HTC 8x will not last forever. Call me greedy because I want an 800 processor, a 5" 1080p screen, and 128 gb sd card support on an AT&T phone, but I really don't think I'm asking too much.

    Just wait a little while before you buy.
    I am guessing that as soon as the new ones arrive the current generation are dropping in value.
    I hope they bring out an other 6" device.

    Yep! So much potential... But that's what this ecosystem is known for. My HTC 8x screen cracked and sold it on eBay for parts but I now wish I kept it and replaced the screen.

    Whoa 3 gigs of RAM? Sounds powerful, fingers crossed for this one and I think it's gonna be very pricey, but considering this will probably gonna be flagship it's understandable, I hope MS will make low end version but with minimum 1 gig, no more 512 MB, so I can switch from my current Lumia 530 to new one, LOL

    I hope its slim like the 925 or 830, and I hope the 5 inch thing is true, otherwise im out. I opt for the 830 over the 930 because the 930 was too thick and heavy for my liking.

    The only reason to buy a "flagship" phone is either to show off to iPhone6 friends or because you need it for the better camera (aka 1020), because you're into photography and/or video.

    Other than that, look at the 830, 930 phones (or the 1520 if you want bigger). Very well priced hardware and absolutely capable of... making calls :)

    I'm thinking that the IBT article is crud. It reads like a copy and paste article made up to look like news. A collage of news if you will. The amount of times I go on sites like that and just shake my head in frustration.

    My preferred news sources are WC, then Thurrott, then MJF. There are a couple more I may look at, but they are the top 3.

    As for flagships, I'm saying early q3, and then more in q4. MS must know that the 1030 and 940 are in need of some loving. The 1330 is gonna be in there too as is a 1530. Whatever they release, the devices will have to tick a few boxes:

    Regular but decent (9...)
    Niche usp phone (1030)
    Niche large flagship (15..)
    Lower spec large thing (13..).

    I do worry that any summer release will be the type of phone I want (1030), but be just short on something else, like the qi, which I really like as a feature. Thankfully, I never got into the glance feature, although I suspect that will become standard on the flagships.

    ? With all the wants and needs that's being thrown around surrounding what may come with the W10 announcements shortly, has anyone ever put any thought into it as to whether W10 will somehow stop devs from discontinuing their app support on the platform. We all love to point fingers at the devs for shabby work on apps and almost non-existent work on the more pop apps. Tbh MS is the one to hold all blame for what's happening on this OS as it's commonsense that devs need to see numbers in any OS in order to make decent or to want to make decent apps for the OS, how can that occur if us the consumers looking on at the WP OS and see that it's still in transition and yet at this point still missing areas within itself that been commonplace for a while on others. Do you truly expect that we the consumers will see MS now put all that's avl in the W10 OS for mobile devices and not think that maybe they'll be slow to make improvements or be innovative. The issue MS has right now in their battle with ANDROID and IOS is that consumers are COMFORTABLE with what they have either upgrading to a newer device or in some few instances switch OSes.

    I love WP and I want the best for it but seriously WP8.1 was announced in early 2014 between Jan & Mar and I didn't get it until Sep, here still waiting for Denim(WP8.1.1), and WP8.1.2. It takes too long a process to get updates to make the OS seem as if it's catching up to IOS and Android. With all the advancements in Tech today should we really be catching up at this point. Come to f..k on....... Live Folders!!!! That should have been a given with Cyan. When MS can develop an OS that will actually make the consumers believe they're not losing out on anything then the devs will be encouraged to improve what's avl and dev new apps for the OS given the response to consumers actually going into the stores and purchasing the devices. The issue still remains that consumers will not buy any device on any OS knowing that the ability to get EVERY popular app isn't there. So with that said where does it start, OS or DEV?

    I maybe optimistic but I have a feeling the removal of a lot of the larger apps developers may just be working to reintroduce Universal versions...hopefully.

    Those specs better not be real. We need better resolution screen and 810 processor to compete with Android flagship phones.
