News: Microsoft is banking on Windows 10 compatibility to invigorate devices business.
Microsoft is planning to boost its struggling smartphone business with new launches targeting niche markets.
Two high-end Lumia smartphones, apparently set to be launched on Tuesday, will use the advantage provided by compatibility with Windows 10 to build appeal among business users.
According to the report in the Wall Street Journal, the fact that the new operating system will allow people to replicate desktop experiences on their mobile devices is key in the plan.
This marks a pivot away from targeting the mass consumer market.
Other enterprise-ready features include enhanced biometric security; leaked photos on Windows Central suggest that the 950 will have an iris scanner to boost security.
The rumour mill suggests that the event will see the launch of the Lumia 550, Lumia 950 and 950 XL smartphones, Band 2 wearable and Surface Pro 4 tablet.
