Microsoft's Lumia Line Will Be Killed Off In December

Production of Lumia phones will likely halt at the end of the year. While that lineup is finished, the company’s Windows 10 mobile plans for 2017 would allude to a successorآ—likely the long-rumored Surface Phone.

آ…it appears Microsoft is working to end its Lumia range. According to an employee at the company, who wishes to remain anonymous, the company is preparing to "end sales" of the range this year, December 2016. It does, however, seem a little odd to actually end sales, instead, we believe that Microsoft will be ending production of its Lumia devices. This latest piece of information fits in line with recent actions from the company, where it has permanently cut the prices of many of its Lumia devices over the past few months. This seems to be an effort to sell off remaining stock and coincides with December being the final month since the price cuts have become larger as time has progressed.
