One of the condition details that were laid out in Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s devices and services divisions for $7.2 billion USD was that the software giant’s next iteration of Lumia Windows Phone devices will no longer be sporting Nokia’s once ‘iconic’ logo. The phone maker will continue to exist as a separate company but as far as smartphones go, Nokia is officially cut off from the industry.
Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone, The Lumia RM-1090 has been leaked thanks to the device being spotted at the Chinese TENAA certification website. True to Microsoft’s acquisition conditions, the device displays a Microsoft logo that is present above the display and on the back side of the chassis, with no Nokia logo to be found.
Since the device made a visit to the FCC in the U.S back in October, a glimpse of the device’s hardware specifications were leaked. Starting off, the Microsoft Lumia RM-1090 features dual-SIM card slots for facilitating two carrier numbers. Both numbers will be able to be used simultaneously. In addition, the Windows Phone also possesses a 5 inch display that is resonating a resolution of 960 by 540 pixels (more commonly known as a qHD display).
The battery providing the necessary juice to the device has a maximum charge capacity of 1,900 mAh and the complete dimensions of the RM-1090 are 140.2 x 72.4 x 9.3 mm. In terms of mobile connectivity, the upcoming Windows Phone will be limited to GSM and 3G with HSPA, and the operating system running on the device being none other than Windows Phone 8.1. So far, those are all the details that have been leaked. Microsoft might be looking for a competitor that can take the fight to Google’s Android One handsets, but for that, the company will have to price the device aggressively.
