Samsung and HTC will be the ones to watch at MWC next week, but there will be other major companies launching smartphones at the event. Chief among those is Microsoft, with Redmond likely to announce a number of new handsets from its Lumia range. However, if you are pining after a flagship device from the company, then you may be left wanting.Microsoft will showcase four new smartphones. The first will be the RM-1031 (Lumia 1031?), which will arrive with a 4-inch 480p screen, which is almost certainly an entry level device (oh yes, another one). Next up is the Microsoft RM-1062, which will be a phablet with a 5.7-inch screen with 720p resolution. Next up will be the RM-1072 and will come with a 5-inch 720p screen, and the RM-1099 will also carry a 4-inch 480p screen. So, that?s another four smartphones to go with Microsoft's already sizeable collection of entry level and budget devices. Microsoft, make a flagship!
