Nokia looks to be planning to unveil some new Lumia hardware and/or software on the first day of Microsoft's Build 2014 show in San Francisco.
The company is holding a press announcement on April 2 in downtown San Francisco, according to an invitation it sent to press and analysts on March 25. The announcement says "Join Us for More," and uses the hashtag #MoreLumia. There also is Windows Phone and Lumia branding on the announcement.
Information has been circulating for a while about possible future Lumia phones expected to debut with Windows Phone 8.1. Those phones include devices codenamed "Moneypenny," "Goldfinger" and "Martini." However, the invitation for next week's event uses the same smiley face logo that Nokia uses for Nokia Mix Radio, its streaming music app.
According to Windows Phone Central, Nokia also is working on a firmware update for its devices that will piggyback on Windows Phone 8.1, which supposedly also is codenamed "Blue." (Nokia has been using colors as codenames for its firmware updates, as of late. Previous Nokia firmware updates have included "Amber" and "Black.")
