Nokia’s announcement of the first ever dual-SIM Lumia handheld is inching closer and closer, and as such infamous insider @evleaks is able to gather a growing amount of intel on the Moneypenny, aka Lumia 630 or 635.
The key hardware specifications, such as the display size and resolution and processor’s make and model, continue to be classified, however several new minor features have been revealed earlier today, thanks to a screenshot of Lumia 635’s homescreen.
By the looks of it, the 635 is bound to accommodate just one SIM card, so the Lumia 630 should fly solo in dual SIM territory. Both versions are expected to support 4G LTE speeds, so while they’ll hardly be powerhouses, they’re to find a nice, comfy spot somewhere in the very middle of the mobile totem pole.
On the software side of things, the UI is to get a couple of slight tweaks, as well as a pretty significant one: on-screen buttons. It’s thus almost set in stone the “Moneypenny” shall run Windows Phone 8.1 out the box, meaning the earliest it could start selling is next spring.
Will it be worth the wait? If the rumors prove accurate, with a 4.5-inch 720p display and 1.5 GHz dual-core processor at its core, plus a sensible price point, I don’t see why not. Do any of you?
