What new Nokia products will launch during Microsoft's event at IFA 2014? We investigate.

IFA 2014 is set to kick off in Berlin next week, with a slew of new products from some of the biggest names in the tech world expected. Among those big names is Nokia, which dominates the list of the best selling mobile phones of all time. Now owned by Microsoft, has Nokia got an exciting new smartphone to show off next week? Here's what to expect from Nokia at IFA 2014.

Microsoft has scheduled a press conference in Berlin on 4 September. The tag line for its conference is "ready for more?" complete with a huge hint at new Nokia Lumia devices. In the 'o' of 'more,' you'll spot the camera lens you'll find on some of Nokia's Lumia phones.

Microsoft has already recently launched the Nokia Lumia 630, 634, 930 and the Nokia Lumia 530, but it's expected that the company will reveal at least one more smartphone, if not two.

IFA 2014 rumours: Nokia Lumia 730

The Nokia Lumia 730 - codenamed 'superman' - is a possibility, alongside the Lumia 830.

The Nokia Lumia 730 will be the mid-range Windows Phone from the company, and is likely to have a new design and new firmware, according to leaks that emerged mid August. It's expected to cost around £250, and is rumoured to be a "selfie phone," complete with a 5Mp front camera and a 4.7in display.

It's expected that the Lumia 830 will be a high-end Windows Phone priced at around £350. It could have a 4.5in 720p display with a 20.1Mp PureView camera, SD card support and decent specs, rumours suggest.
