Soon we will see plethora of Windows Phone smartphones hitting the market shelves, and the clue that leads to that is the announcement that Microsoft made earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress 2014. At the international technology fair, the major software giant actually revealed the names of the OEM partners, who were ready to build smartphone hardware that would run on Microsoft's mobile platform Windows phone.
Now one among the lot - Lenovo, was last time rumored to release the smartphone powered by Windows Phone OS this summer. However, it couldn't make it. Now the latest news coming courtesy of the German website Mobile Geeks, suggests that the device pre-loaded with Windows Phone 8.1 OS will be launched within this year.
But that is again not a rock sold statement. According to Mobile Geeks, Liu Jun (President of Lenovo's Mobile Business Group) said that the company will definitely introduce a Windows Phone 8.1 device sometime this year.
There is no detail pertaining to the specs of the handset at the moment, and we also don't know whether the company would go for a mid-ranger or a high-end Windows Phone device.
Also another interesting news that Mobile Geeks uncovered about Lenovo's future plans was wearable device. Reportedly, Liu Jun also told Mobile Geeks that Lenovo intends to release wearables in the near future. If you are not aware, Moto 360 is one wearable device you might be thinking about, since Motorola is now owned by Lenovo. But it is not the Moto 360 that Liu Jun is talking about but the Lenovo-branded one. We are guessing that the device would hit the market sometime later this year or early next year.
