Microsoft has teased its selfie smartphone ahead of IFA 2014


IFA 2014 is coming up this week and we’re all anxiously waiting to see what products will be announced at the trade show. Microsoft has already confirmed that it will have something to show us at IFA. Today the company has posted another teaser of what to expect. The teaser lines up with rumors about Microsoft unveiling a new Lumia smartphone which will also be known as a “selfie” phone. Its pretty self-explanatory, the smartphone is likely to have a good front facing camera that’s ideal for taking selfies.

Microsoft has published a new teaser invite for its IFA 2014 event, where it is expected to showcase its much-anticipated but as-yet-unannounced selfie-focused Lumia 730 smartphone. The company teased the invite on its Conversations blog, with the caption ‘Ready for #MoreLumia?”, along with a group selfie of three users. The image also states “September 4, 2014 at 10am CET” on the top right corner, with a countdown to a live webcast from the Berlin event. It is worth noting that the Redmond firm’s first teaser for its Nokia Lumia 730 smartphone last month also showed an orange-themed image that said, “Ready for more” and “Join us for more face time.” In July, Microsoft’s rumoured selfie-focused smartphone was also reportedly shown off at an internal company meeting by Stephen Elop. In the meanwhile, Phonearena claims to have obtained images of the Lumia 730 Dual SIM as well as what appears to be its single-SIM LTE variant, the Lumia 735 4G. Last month, the rumoured Lumia 730 was leaked by a Vietnamese retailer – tipping the handset’s design, pricing, and specifications.
