Dual-SIM smartphone homescreen shows possible Lumia 630 name
Two separate leaks suggest Nokia is still working on new mobile devices, despite the impending acquisition of its Devices and Services division by Microsoft. The home screen of a device codenamed Moneypenny has apparently surfaced, at the same time as new images of a protective cover for the long-rumored Lumia 929.
The home screen from the @evleaks Twitter account offers little in the way of clues to the device, though the two separate phone tiles, messaging tiles, and signal icons at the top strongly suggest it to be a dual-SIM device, while the time of 6:30 is believed to refer to the device name of the Lumia 630. Though this does not reveal what the device will look like, the Windows 8.1 shot with dual-SIM items suggests it to be a release destined for emerging markets, areas typically associated with dual-SIM devices.
Accessory seller Wireless Ground lists an "Armor stand case" for the Nokia Lumia 929, with the device making another appearance since it was last seen brandishing a white backing and Verizon logos on the rear. It is though to have a five-inch 1080p display, a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
