Microsoft’s first Lumia device without Nokia branding will be unveiled on November 11. The Redmond-based company recently made the announcement on its Nokia Conversations blog alongside a teaser image of said device sporting a camera module in what appears to be the front right corner of the handset.
The brief post says Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone. Come back on November 11 to find out more. They also threw in #MoreLumia for good measure.
The photo is the third in a series of images released by Microsoft. The other two reveal Microsoft branding on what looks to be the front and back of the handset. Judging by the photos alone, the phone will carry a colorful plastic shell which seems to fit with earlier rumors suggesting this won’t be a flagship but rather, a budget-minded device.
Chinese site Tenna recently leaked specs for a phone known as the RM-1090 which is believed to be the Lumia handset in question. Those specs include a 5-inch HD screen, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, dual-SIM support, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a VGA front-facing shooter and a 1900mAh battery.
The site claims the phone will come in black, white, gray, blue, orange, and green.
Some expect the phone to launch as the Lumia 525 but we won’t know for sure until next Tuesday.
