Nokia is posing another save the date call for the media, as Oct. 22 brings Nokia World in Abu Dhabi. During this event, a total of six devices are slated for release by the Finnish company.
In this teaser poster from Nokia's official Twitter, it seems that the company is looking for a way to push its devices forward into the future, at the same time putting it at the forefront of connectivity between people.
"At #Nokia, we believe in technology that brings people closer. Join us on October 22 #innovationreinvented."

Three other similar tweets with accompanying teaser images reveal that Nokia believes in "technology that grows in leaps and bounds" and in technology that makes us more human."

The most awaited reveal would be the Nokia Lumia 2520, which is the company's take on 10.1-inch tablets. This device is predicted to sport a 2.15GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Windows RT 8.1 OS, battery-powered QWERTY keyboard and protective cover.
It will also feature a pretty good camera at 6.7-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, which puts it as one of the tablets with the best cameras in the market.
Not to be left behind in the 6-incher industry, Nokia has also been reported to launch the Lumia 1520, its take on the 6-inch phablet device. The Verge reports that the leaked images have shown that it has square edges and thin bezels on the sides to enable the bigger screen without adding fat to the phone.
Other features expected of the Lumia 1520 include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and 5-megapixel and 16-megapixel cameras.
Low-end Phones: Nokia's Bigger Market?
While the Nokia Lumia 2520 and the Lumia 1520 are considered to be rallying for the higher end of the market, Nokia has been showing a good fight in the low-end segment, with most of the profits of the company attributed to the sales of its more affordable smartphones.
This may also point to the fact that the unnamed and unspecified four other devices that Nokia will be rolling out are speculated to be budget phones, as these are the ones that will have bigger chances of raking in profits for the company.
In a report from Phone Arena, the latest figures from AdDuplex point to Nokia being representative of the Windows Phone market at 88% and 31.6% of this is attributed to the Nokia Lumia 520.
Following the Nokia Lumia 520, the Lumia 920 (13.8%), Lumia 620 (13.6%), Lumia 820 (8.6%) and Lumia 720 (7.8%) make up a rather big share in the market globally. This shows the company's pull of customers towards their low-end segment.
The same thing cannot be said for Nokia's more high-end line, despite the hype that it touts one of the best smartphone cameras around. Perhaps this is the reason why only two of the six phones slated for release are going to be in the mid- to high-end status, just so Nokia will not limit itself to one single global market.
