Earlier this week, we got a glimpse of the first Lumia smartphone to come without the Nokia branding, but with Microsoft’s logo instead. And it looks like the Redmond giant will be unveiling this very smartphone next week.
A teaser image has been posted on the Conversations blog which shows a small portion of a smartphone with the words More Lumia above. There’s a tagline as well, which reads ‘Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone.’ This clearly hints at an affordable handset having all of the latest features onboard.
What’s interesting is that Microsoft already has its hands full in the budget market with the Lumia 530 which is it the cheapest WP8.1 device, the Lumia 630 and the Lumia 730. It’s still a mystery what the upcoming phone will be called and we’re assuming that it’ll most likely be an upgraded version of the Lumia 630 featuring a front camera and more RAM.
The upcoming device is most likely the same phone which got listed on TENNA as the RM-1090 with Microsoft’s logo on the front and rear. What we know about this handset is that it will have a 5-inch qHD display with a pixel density of 220ppi, dual SIM support, HSPA connectivity and dual cameras.
The rear snapper will most likely be rated at 5MP, while the front will have a VGA camera. And the processor here will without a doubt be a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon chipset since that’s the lowest we’ve seen in the new lineup so far.
There’s still a few days to go for November 11 which is Tuesday, to arrive, so we might just receive more details about the upcoming Microsoft phone by then.
