Good old Nokia is probably up to its old confusing naming schemes again. Fortunately for us there haven't been more than 3 Nokia-branded, HMD-made smartphones so far. But before July gives way to August, there might be four in total already. According to WinFuture.de's sources, the true Nokia flagship, a high-end model, is just around the corner.

Nokia “Mercury” was the Surface Mini Microsoft should have done

Not all devices, even those highly leaked ones, see the light of day. Some get unceremoniously abandoned on the cutting room floor. Last week, we caught a glimpse of the much fabled and sadly still-born Microsoft Surface Mini. Now we're being treated to another canceled 8-inch Windows device, the Nokia "Mercury", which would have become the Lumia 2020. Unfortunately for Nokia, it never came to be. Unfortunately for Microsoft, this could have been a better hit.
