    So when do you guys the Lumia flagship will come, because Microsoft promised a flagship this summer, which is also when windows 10 will be rolling out, so it makes perfect sense for the phone or phones (hoping for a 940 and 940xl) to be announced during BUILD this month, and then released sometime in the summer which could be anywhere from 2-3 months from that to fit that summer promise..so I don't know why I keep seeing people around here in the forums talking about how they can't wait for windows 10 to be finished in the fall or how they think the flagship will come this fall, when Microsoft has clearly said the flagship is coming this summer, and windows 10 is rolling out this summer also (which means it would be finished by then).... so yeah I speculate and hope we get a glimpse of Lumia's high end future at BUILD this month

    We MIGHT hear or see sth at BUILD, but there is no guarantee... For now all we know is that there is supposedly a 15xx coming

    I'm setting my own expectation of August through October at least in the U.S. on At&t for the 940XL with Surface Pen support. Microsoft make it happen.

    I hope its sooner. They should try to beat the new iPhone to market but everything points to around that time.

    What does everyone else think?

    Announcing a new model is very different from it "coming". Especially for MS.
    I'd be very surprised if I can walk into a store and buy any new Windows "flagship" phone this calendar year.

    I'm happy with my 930.

    Partially because it stills says 'Nokia' on it.

    I hope that it'll be June or early July. I really don't want to go through another summer without a PureView camera (ATIV S user here). An October / November release would be a bummer, 3 years after the wp8 launch devices (920, ATIV S, 8x).

    What terrifies me is the thought of a 940 this summer, and then a 1030 a few months later. Same thing happened to me sitting on a 920, and I'm holding out for THE best.

    MS never promised a flagship this summer. They said they are still committed to offering a future flagship and that it would release with Windows 10, but I don't recall them saying summer. Just because the Win 10 PC OS comes out this summer does not mean the flagship will. Win 10 Mobile probably won't be ready at the same time and Daniel has been saying late fall, probably November so don't get your hopes up for any announcements at Build.

    Prepare to be frustrated. In the U.S. at least I expect whatever device (singular) to be announced for a single carrier then actually released around november/december in small quantities at each store which will be hidden in the back room. More advanced countries in Europe will do slightly better with maybe 2-3 carriers carrying it. Canada, zilch. Calling it now. 😃

    It wouldn't surprise me if MS does not do a successor to the 1020 since they consider it a niche device. They will probably do a successor to the 920/930 and 1520 series. Perhaps as a 940 & 940 XL.

    I also will not be surprised if Nokia returns to the phone market in 2016 with the true 1020 successor but running android!

    Me too. Also a Lumia 930 user. In terms of usability, I am completely satisfied with 930. Not to mention the great camera. Being a little bit thicker than other flagships, people tend to recognize it as a non-flagship. I especially like the back of the phone (mine is Gold-White).

    Ouch, November / December would be rough.

    I'm definitely hoping they don't pull the same crap they did with the 920, 925, 1020. That was too much, I'm holding on to a 920 but would have liked to know that the 925 and 1020 were right around the corner.

    I'm waiting for the 1520 successor, once that appears, I'm jumping on it.

    Since we are looking at any time from August to December, I'm wondering if they will try to one-up apple and release just before, or just after Apple comes out with whatever is next for them... Doesn't apples new phone generally come out around the end of October?

    I think they need to release it before Apple releases the next iPhone. Otherwise, it'll get little to no coverage in the media. We'll be the only people who notice it, but the average Joe or Jane who stops at the carrier store won't notice it, and the carrier store reps will just push the iPhone.

    I think Apple announce September, then release October. I have spent hours wondering whether it is better to released before or after Apple announce/release.

    Part of me thinks that they would be better off beating Apple to market. I think if they are any later, then they will be slaughtered by the world and their dog clamouring fir fruit flavoured phones.

    Problem is that if anyone shows a glimmer of interest in WP comparison with iPhone in that periodsales reps drones will just say "come back next month when the new iPhone is in stock". Customers will return with the mindset to have an iPhone, drone gets his commission, WP does not even get picked up for a demo.
    being able to hold and use them side by side is where the sales may come.

    Even if the flagship Windows Phone is released at the same time or after the new iPhone, customers can't compare side-by-side if the Windows Phone is in the back of the store. The iPhone always gets premium placement at the front of the store where the customers see it as soon as they walk into the store.

    I believe they will release one before Apple and do major marketing for it. Plus, there will be something for the tech sites to compare with Apple's new phone.

    It has to be before iPhone. Especially for a flagship. If they release after Apple they are dead. We've waited too long for an upgrade. I'm switching to an S6 for the interim. I will see next year how Windows 10 with its miraculous universal apps is doing. Maybe a 1040 will lure me back sooner though?

    I think it would need to come before Apple, but I think an August or September release is optimistic, based on the W10 previews. They have so much to do.

    Is Apple even releasing a new phone this fall? They just released two phones. What are they going to reinvent this time? The SD card?

    So MS probably won't announce anything major at Build except for maybe more budget phones or a 740/740 XL series. Then when desktop PC Windows 10 is released sometime in the summer, that's when they need to announce the flagship(s)! Even if Windows 10 mobile version is coming later in the fall.

    In the meantime I'll just sit here and wait for my Denim update!
