Thought Samsung has long since moved on from the second-generation Galaxy and tech news in general forgets about essentially any phone (even the Lumia 520) almost without fail once they've been out for a short period of time, there's a battle going on at T-Mobile between these two machines. Both the Nokia Lumia 521 (as it's called when you see it working with T-Mobile) and the Samsung Galaxy S II are currently tagged "Top Seller" on the carrier's stock listings, this honor only otherwise given to the HTC One and iPhone 5 at this very moment. What makes this set of devices so special?

Nokia “Treasure Tag” will keep your keys in place with Bluetooth and NFC

There's an accessory line in the making said to be coming from Nokia in the form of a so-called "Treasure Tag" NFC dongle.

Nokia 6-inch phone panel appears on factory floor

Here not even a week after Nokia revealed that it had, indeed, been working on a smartphone larger that its hero 920 lineup, another - even larger - panel has appeared in China. This 6-inch panel has appeared via notoriously accurate leakster IC Tech who suggests that this panel rings in at 6-inches diagonally, this trumping the already large 4.7-inch panel of the Nokia Lumia 625.

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1020 PureView might not need an introduction, but it may need an explanation. Announced with no small amount of fanfare (and hyperbole from Nokia CEO Stephen Elop) the new Windows Phone borrows Nokia's photography tricks from the notably-niche 808 PureView of 2012, refining it with Microsoft's OS and a more streamlined form-factor to make an attempt at the mass-market. That mass-market will get the Lumia 1020 on AT&T from July 26, but the 41-megapixel marvel has already been on the SlashGear test bench, so read on for our full review.

Nokia Lumia 625 detailed in full leak with 4.7-inch display

It's one day early and certainly "Something Big" as Nokia suggested just this morning: the Lumia 625, complete with 4.7-inch display. This device will be working with a 4.7-inch IPS display at 800 x 480 pixels, surprisingly, this suggesting that - as it was guessed - this device will be headed for a more budget-minded crowd.

Nokia teases “something BIG”, likely Lumia 625 [UPDATE]

Nokia teases “something BIG”, likely Lumia 625 [UPDATE]

It would appear that the fabled Nokia Lumia upgrade (larger than the Lumia 925, that is) may be just around the corner as the company itself suggests "something BIG" is on the way. With nothing more than a single NOKIA logo on orange and a teaser ringing up with "we can't tell you what it is yet", it certainly could be something we've never heard of or seen before. But with the device itself appearing in China through radio certification just last week, you'll be keen to bet on it.

UPDATE: Yeah that's pretty much a lock.
