Microsoft may have already taken Nokia under its wing via its mobiles department, but we are yet to see something groundbreaking with the deal in place. However, it seems like all that is about to change.
According to reports, Microsoft is looking to release a brand new device dubbed Nokia McLaren this November. Apparently, the device is said to arrive with 3D touch technology. And if you are guessing too much, obviously, McLaren is just a codename for the device.
Moreover, this so-called Nokia McLaren is the same device that was previously leaked under a different nickname, Goldfinger. And now it appears that WPCentral has more info on the upcoming flagship smartphone that will be released by Microsoft this fall.
"I can add to the story quite a bit, specifically some details around 'McLaren.' But first, I should mention that AT&T is slated to get the new green Lumia 1520 sometime in late June or July as part of the Windows Phone 8.1 launch," WPCentral states.
"I don't know if it'll be 32 GB internal or 16 GB, but with micro SD expansion, the ability to install apps and games to the card and 128 GB support, it doesn't matter anymore."
The report also claims that Nokia McLaren will indeed include 3D Touch technology. Moreover, this is the same technology that was revealed last year by The Verge's Tom Warren. Hence, this may not be something new in terms of information.
Microsoft is currently expected to unveil the Nokia McLaren this fall, although it's still unclear whether it will be showing the device off at the upcoming IFA 2014 in early September. More details on this are expected to arrive in the future.
