Microsoft and Nokia codenames get leaked for this summer

Nokia Microsoft

This week is certainly expected to be a rather busy one for Windows Phone and what better way to kick things off than with some leaked codenames. Courtesy of @evleaks, the popular leakster Twitter profile, new Nokia codenames have been published for everyone to begin speculating with. In addition, we figured we would toss in a few Microsoft codenames to make it all even more interesting!

According to the leakster Evleaks account, eight codenamed Nokia products are in development - Ara, Leo, Moonraker, Onyx, Peridot, Superman, Tesla, and Vantage. That's all we have on the products. No further information or imagery was included.


We've also managed to obtain some more codenames that you can expect to see in the coming months from Microsoft. Some are accessories, but most are unknown at this stage.

June 5th

  • Microsoft Hughes
  • Microsoft Adcock
  • Microsoft Capers

July 22

  • Microsoft Galway
  • Microsoft Dublin

We're also still waiting to see what comes of 'Goldfinger', though out last info on that phone was not until Q1 2015. What are you wanting to see come out of Nokia and Microsoft post-acquisition?

Microsoft and Nokia codenames get leaked for this summer



Almost gave me a heart attack Mr Edmonds... I thought this is about WP8.1 being available :P

Anyway, why does it seem like Nokia still has a full product line? So when exactly are we going to see a Microkia handset?

At some point after the acquisition i would presume. Unfortunately the real world isn't like sim city, just buying a brand doesn't allow you to simply release products. They still need to be designed and developed first.

My brother went to CES after he won a Nokia contest a couple of months ago. He met with Nokia reps and they told him they already have a line of phones half way thru 2015!! It's crazy how far ahead they are getting ready for.

Why? It's not like getting a phone from design to shelves is a fast process... And that's without coordinating anything with the myriad of external companies involved.

The link is password protected. Which means it is still not yet published to the public. But the blog post is already done. So pretty much confirms its.out today. I'm sure Dan has an article ready to publish also.

Exactly what I thought.
Suspected Tesla because when I hear the name, I think of specs similar to the solar charge (which was rumoured for the L1525)

And Superman just sounds like a big badass. I'm a bit skeptical about the price range to expect.

Please stop commenting about unrelated topics on the news articles. Its really irritating seeing the same posts such as "give us wp8.1" or "when will wp8.1 dev preview be released" bla bla...IT WILL HAPPEN WHEN IT HAPPENS. JUST STOP!!!

Hey man, no need to get angry..it's a happier moment for WinPhans and we can't just help. This time comes one in a while so allow us to chill and celebrate. After today u won't see "give us 8.1" but rather u will see "Cortana can't hear my voice, 8.1 is soo great, 8.2 features to come, etc)...just relax

I guess u r ri8, even I am excited....but I don't go around writing the same comment on a news article, then a post and repeat, u know what I mean...

Actually you are writing on the Word Flow keyboard, that's what the standard keyboard is called but it doesn't have swipe or shape writing ;)

WHERE THE F&%K IS MY CORTANA!!!!!!.... Wooohaaahaha LOL, calm the hell down great impatient mob of "developers" ;) your 8.1 will surely be here within 48 hours... !

I love the "Tesla" I am a big big fan of Nikola Tesla such an amazing genius that we should thank every time we switch on the lights or the car, the radio...

I know...... I meant to say that there could be a connection between the two. Windows Phone based on Phonebloks concept would be awesome.

Thanks for the link!
But I don't know what, when I click on the article and login, it won't show up. Rather throws an error :(

Good for Nokia the corporation with micro ..many model's same update with 2 years support..not like Android

Don't get mad with them Sam, we were waiting for so much time for something new on oor phones....i feel them.

Respected Sam,

SORRY for being off-topic, but could you PLEASE help us by giving an approx time for WP8.1 Dev Prev update if you have an idea, so that we can stop "checking for update" again and again and pet the cat?

Best regards,

Ara, Leo, Moonraker, Onyx, Peridot, Superman, Tesla, and Vantage... They all sound like superheroes

HAHAHA....what can i say, my lumia 920 went for service and i won't get the wp8.1 until i get my phone back :'(

no it doesn't, there are no reported cases whatsoever,Daniel posted it one of his articles!moreover i tried it myself when it was first released for GDR2 updates...dnt worry!!

Its true. It doesn't nccessarily voids warranty. Even the Dev Prev program itself says it MAY void warranty, without confirmation. I got my Lumia repaired once after aplying Dev Prev. It works fine.

It may void the warranty cuz the update doesn't contain s the CYAN update from Nokia and they don't recognize the preview as an official update....they think it's something like jailbreak.

oh common dont speculate...theoretically it may void but practically it hasn't happened to any of us..what makes u think u would be that unlucky??relax and go ahead with it when you get back your phone..

Man you really have to be enough unlucky to get your Lumia repaired 8 times in half a year but yes in most cases Dev Prev doesn't void warranty. At least not in my case. Frankly speaking, I think it all depends on the service centre you bring your phone to. They didn't check my phone if it had Dev Prev or not. They just repaired it. In other cases, they may check and deject it and you've to pay.

But I thought WPCentral already had an 8.1. Anyway looks like there will be a lot of competition in the News industry to post the 8.1 release news first :)

The thing with these codenames is that they seem much better names to have on the commercial releases than the final ones. Moonraker for me!

Common guys, just comment on this article, don't go off topicWPCENTRAL will report when WP 8.1 is available for download

This is what qualifies as an article on this site these days and that's why I've stopped coming here. 

Wow, apart from Dan and Sam you're also active.
Something surely is going to happen soon... *fingers crossed*

or is it just my over excitement...

Those leaks were exciting. Er, yes really very exciting...I heard some more from madeupleaks.com - Ironman, Waterlilly, Barcelona, and Mercury. Take 'em with a pinch of salt, but hope you enjoy them...

Hope for many more WP in coming months with special features... for now nothing new. We expected 3D touch  and many more at Build but did comes nothing...

What about printing on Windows Phone 8.1? I hoped for something in this way but seems any news...

ok taking a look at previous lumia devices:

520, 620, 720, 820, 920, 1020, 1320, 1520, 2520

and taking out the 520, 620, 920 (Due to the fact they're getting succesors that we know of)

we're left with 720, 820, 1020, 1320, 1520, 2520

going on a guess here im assuming that the onyx + peridot devices are lower end or mid rangers so possibly the 720 + 820 succesors or maybe 2 new asha's (although the lumia theory would make more sence)

so now we're left with the 1020, 1320, 1520, 2520

i don't know why but i have a feeling that the superman device is probably a sucessor to the 1020

and i can't figure out the rest but assuming 3 of them are upgrades for the 1320, 1520 and 2520.

pretty much an educated guess but yeah :p

This article has generated enough traffic than it was supposed to!!excitement overflowing...sam dan just get a confirmation that today is the day..and we will let you sleep!!

Am I the only one waiting on information and leaks regarding a Surface Mini or even... Surface Phone? Tired of all the Nokia phones that end up disappointing me, one way or another.

I think he is talking about getting Cortana update by changing region before update as Cortana doesn't come to India now
