Microsoft has got Two Phones Ready for Launch: A Selfie Phone and a Premium Phone

As Microsoft continues to focus more on Mobile under the leadership of its new CEO, Satya Nadella, it seems to be having new Phones in the Work.

As The Verge reports, Stephen Elop (Devices Chief) showed off the new devices at a Company Meeting. It seems that one of them would be codenamed “Superman”, and will be focused towards delivering better selfies. There was a report earlier about this “Superman” Phone, and if the reports are to be believed, then this phone has a 5MP Front-Facing Camera, developed by Nokia, which has a penchant for great Phone Cameras.

The Second Phone is codenamed “Tesla”, and will be a Premium Phone, but won’t have a Premium Pricetag. Its Camera will have Nokia’s excellent Pureview Tech, and it will be released at an affordable Price.

It seems that these products are almost-ready, and we can expect launches soon.

We are more excited about the Premium Phone. We already know how impressive Pureview is. And now it is coming to cheaper phones, which makes it more accessible. If Microsoft manages to make a Cheap Premium phone, that is actually Premium and doesn’t screw anything up, then Microsoft may have a hit on its hands.
