Nokia to unveil cheap Lumia 610 alongside high-end camera phone at MWC [video]

Nokia on Tuesday released a teaser video showing off the remarkable camera included on a handset it plans to unveil next week at the annual Mobile World Congress trade Show in Barcelona, Spain. The device is thought to be a high-end Windows Phone with a 12-megapixel camera that has surfaced in a number of earlier reports. A new report on Wednesday claims that Nokia has plans to announce a new cheaper Windows Phone at the show next week as well, however, suggesting that the Finnish phone maker plans to address multiple market segments with its Windows Phone announcements once again. Read on for more.

During the Nokia’s first round of Windows Phone announcements, the vendor unveiled the high-end Lumia 800 and the entry-level Lumia 710, an affordable handset currently available for just $39.99 on contract from T-Mobile in the United States. The company then unveiled a second high-end Windows Phone at last month’s Consumer Electronics Show, the AT&T-bound Lumia 900. Now, Reuters reports that Nokia will take the wraps off the Lumia 610, “a new, cheaper smartphone using Microsoft’s Windows Phone software,” at next week’s conference.

Reuters also reaffirms earlier reports stating that Nokia plans to unveil an international version of the Lumia 900 set to launch on AT&T next month. It is likely that this high-end smartphone is the camera phone referenced in Nokia’s new teaser video, which follows below.
