Recently, we passed along a rumour that claims Microsoft is planning to lift the lid on two new high-end Lumia handsets in the 2nd half of the year. It seems the Redmond firm has another smartphone in the works, as a budget Lumia has entered India for testing.
The screenshot you see above was taken from Zauba, India’s import/export database. It shows that the unannounced RM-1127 has entered Microsoft’s facilities in India for testing purposes.
Unfortunately, not much is known about the RM-1127. The listing only reveals that the device sports a 4.7-inch screen and supports a single SIM card slot.
The listing does not mention pricing, but it does value the mystery smartphone at $71, which is around £47. This is an indication that the RM-1127 will be an affordable handset.
Unfortunately, that’s all she wrote at the moment, but we’re guessing the RM-1127 will run Windows 10 for phones, which is the latest version of Microsoft’s Windows for mobile devices.
As for the two high-end Lumia handsets, they are rumoured to have been code named “Cityman” and “Talkman.”
The Talkman is rumoured to sport a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera (probably a PureView camera), a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, a 64-bit hexa-core processor made by Qualcomm (probably a Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core processor with four ARM Cortex-A53, two ARM Cortex-A57 cores, and an Adreno 418 GPU), 3 GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh removable battery. It is said to be slimmer than the Lumia 930.
The Cityman is said to sport a 5.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera (probably a PureView camera), a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 32 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 64-bit octa-core processor made by Qualcomm (probably a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with four cores clocked at 2 GHz, four cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, and an Adreno 430 GPU), 3 GB of RAM, and a 3,300 mAh battery.
