Ever since the Finnish smartphone manufacturer Nokia was acquired by Microsoft, there were expectations from the latter to announce the Microsoft Lumia brand of devices. Now, it appears like the first such smartphone sans Nokia branding would be breaking cover on November 11.
The Redmond based software giant Microsoft has come up with a teaser with an image of a new smartphone and a date, November 11. Also, there is a tagline “Big on experiences” tipping that the device would be coming with enhanced photography features. However, the teaser does not reveal any other details regarding the specifications and features of the upcoming smartphone, though we will get to know the same in four more days.
It is quite probable the smartphone that would be launched at the next week’s event could be the RM-1090 handset as has been spotted in TENAA, the China’s equivalent of the FCC lately and on the US FCC as well last month. The handset is listed to boast of an orange colored build and carry a Microsoft branding and logo printed on its rear panel. The logo placement is in-line with the new branding plans of the company that got confirmed lately.
The Windows Phone 8.1 operating system based RM-1090 handset that was spotted on TENAA is listed to feature a 5 inch qHD display carrying a resolution of 540×960 pixels. The device is claimed to support dual SIM functionality, 3G for connectivity and powered by a 1,900 mAh battery. Additionally, the smartphone is slated to feature 8 GB of internal storage capacity that should be expandable, a 5 MP rear camera and a VGA front facing selfie snapper. As for colors, it will come in black, white, gray, blue, orange, blue and green color variants.
Notably, the specifications of the RM-1090 listed by TENAA adhere to those specifications revealed by the FCC certification website last month.
While Microsoft announced that it will be replacing the Nokia branding on the Lumia smartphones with the Microsoft branding, the former will be retained on the entry level phones such as Nokia 130 as per a license agreement between the firms.
