Nokia to announce its Windows Phone 8.1 devices on April 19?

Nokia may have new devices to show us on April 19th, well-informed (to say the least) EVleaks is saying. At this point it’s unknown what will be announced at that time. However, since Microsoft will also launch Windows Phone 8.1 in April, chances are we’ll see the first Nokia smartphone(s) using this platform officially unveiled.

Earlier we’ve heard that Finns will use Mobile World Congress to announce three new phones; Alas, that hasn’t happened and perhaps we see these three at the April event. The trio I’m talking about includes Lumia 630, Lumia 635 and Lumia 930. The first two are mid-range devices, one of which (Lumia 635) rocks dual-SIM capability. As for the Lumia 930, it should be successor to the popular Lumia 920 model.

We expect to see the new phones dumping physical capacitive buttons for on-screen ones. That’s just one of the features Windows Phone 8.1 will bring to the table; there are also better notifications, support for other chips, and so on and on.
