Microsoft revealed in its 10-Q filing of its fiscal third quarter 2016 financial results that it had sold 2.3 million Lumia phones during that time period.
The numbers were buried in a section of the filing that Microsoft sends to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Microsoft also revealed it had sold 15.7 million other phones (likely feature phones) during the same period. A year ago, Microsoft said it had sold 8.6 million Lumia phones during the fiscal third quarter of 2015.
While that number is indeed a big drop compared to a year ago, there's also been almost no marketing or sales push for Microsoft's latest Windows 10 Mobile phones, such as the Lumia 950, the Lumia 950 XL, the Lumia 550 and the recently launched Lumia 650. Microsoft is selling unlocked versions of all of these phones themselves, and only one of them is currently being offered by a U.S. carrier (AT&T for the Lumia 950). The Lumia 650 will be sold by AT&T's no-contract subsidiary Cricket Wireless in the U.S. starting on May 6. With all of that against the Lumia division, selling 2.3 million units is not a terrible number.
