Looking to strike while the iron is hot, Nokia is apparently working on a low-end, low-cost 4.5-inch smartphone, which could be viewed as the true heir to Lumia 520’s budget-conscious throne.
After months of speculation, seemingly unintentional confirmations, vaguer and more thorough spills of information, Nokia’s Lumia 525 has moments ago become official as a minor but meaningful Lumia 520 upgrade.

Even with the highly anticipated Lumia 1320, 1520 and 2520 going official a couple of weeks ago, there’s no shortage of speculation concerning upcoming Nokia devices. In fact, we’re facing a genuine rumor overload… again, this time starring the Lumia 525, 929 and “Illusionist”.
With the Lumia 520 becoming the most popular Windows Phone device, everyone’s been looking forward to its upcoming successor, the Lumia 525.
While last week’s Nokia World press event was certainly action-packed, with a new Lumia smartphone duo, the first ever Lumia tab and a trio of basic Asha handhelds seeing daylight, the Finns didn’t put all the cards on the table and kept an ace or two up their sleeves.
Nokia is promising over half-a-dozen new devices to be announced at its Nokia World event on October 22. Will this be what Nokia needs to make itself more competitive against established device giants?
It’s not much of a secret anymore that Nokia has a number of tricks up its sleeve, which will all get uncovered come October 22, but even with a certified rumor bonanza going on, guessing the exact line-up of the Abu Dhabi event was not easy.
