The speculation regarding Microsoft and the Lumia branding have been in the air for a pretty long time. No one knows exactly what’s going to happen or what Microsoft’s plans are for the smartphone series. In the middle of multiple business moves including the breaking of ties with Nokia, the Lumia brand is — and has been for a while— in danger of being discontinued.

Lumia out of stock

One might think that Microsoft would have a firm plan for its own handset line, but people have begun to question even that since the Windows developer went to list and delist the Lumia catalogue on its website several times. This made fans and users alike feel like there is no future for Lumia.

Now, another troubling sign coming from AT&T: The carrier delisted all the Lumia devices off its website aside from just one. At the moment, you can only buy a refurbished Lumia 640 XL for $84.99. There is also a Lumia 950 listing that currently states that the product is out of stock. Aside from that, the two models are unavailable with no additional information.

Surface Phone might save the day

There have been talks about a Surface Phone for a while. It would emulate the success of the Surface line of hybrid laptops but put the tech into a smartphone instead. There is no official confirmation as to when people can expect this handset and what it will offer, but many believe it could save Microsoft’s mobile department.

With the Lumia collection not doing well and Windows 10 Mobile platform falling apart, it looks like this particular Microsoft department is facing some unpleasant times.
