Just in case there was any doubt that Microsoft plans to continue making Lumia smartphones, the head of the company's Windows and devices division, Terry Myerson, confirmed that it still plans to launch new premium Lumia smartphones in the near future.
Myerson made this statement as part of Microsoft's first Worldwide Partner Conference Keynote address in Orlando:
"Last week we announced a focusing on our Lumia lineup, but let me be clear: soon you will see premium new Lumias designed for Windows 10."
Myerson is referring to Microsoft's plans to lay off 7,800 of its workers in the next 12 months, the majority of which will come from its phone division. CEO Satya Nadella has already revealed that Microsoft is still "committed to our first-party devices including phones."
It's possible that Microsoft will make its official announcement on its new Lumia phones at the IFA trade show in Berlin in early September. The company has already announced plans to hold a Windows 10 PC device press event for that show on September 4.
