Microsoft-owned Nokia is currently brimming with new ideas and products that will change business for ever.

 

Although Microsoft is already developing a brand for forthcoming smartphone products following the acquisition of Nokia, the company is still not ready to shed more light on it.

In the meantime, Nokia is working on a new smartphone with the codename "Superman" that will feature a high-resolution camera specifically targeted to encash on the selfie phenomenon, according to a report from The Verge.

The Nokia Lumia Superman could be a smartphone with a focus on the front-facing camera.

Nokia ‘Superman' Coming Soon with 5MP Front Camera

Sources familiar with Microsoft's plans informs The Verge that the Nokia Lumia Superman will feature a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, instead of a normal 1.2MP front-facing shooter.

Furthermore, the Nokia Superman will feature a 4.7-inch display, and is expected to debut sometime later in the year. The first Windows Phone 8.1 update is tipped to arrive in July, but the Superman should hit the market alongside the second update due later this year.

Additionally, Nokia is said to be preparing Nokia Goldfinger smartphone, although it was originally destined to be launched earlier this year with the Windows Phone 8.1. The Goldfinger handset alongside two other Windows Phone 8.1 phones are still undergoing testing.

 

Nokia Brand won't be used on Future devices

The former chief executive of Nokia, Stephen Elop, recently stated that Microsoft is developing a brand for forthcoming smartphone products following the acquisition of Nokia.

"The Nokia brand is available to Microsoft to use for its mobile phones products for a period of time, but Nokia as a brand will not be used for long going forward for smartphones. Work is under way to select the go forward smartphone brand."

Elop, to a certain extent, clarified that the software giant will not use Nokia or Microsoft Mobile to crack the highly competitive handset market.
