Microsoft will reveal its first Lumia handset without the Nokia brand on November 11th, some seven months after the Redmond-based tech giant completed its acquisition of the Finnish phone-maker.
Promising to ‘deliver the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone’ in a post on its Lumia Conversations blog, the Big M offered nothing else in the way of details.
However, a detailed leak from China has revealed just what we can expect to see.
The dual SIM device is set to feature a 5–inch qHD display, 8GB of on board storage, a 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.
Word is it’ll only feature 3G, meaning it will most likely be a true bargain-basement effort.
Microsoft officially confirmed that it had retired the Nokia brand last month.
The news came after lengthy speculation about its plans following its acquisition of the Finnish company’s devices and services businesses back in April.
Microsoft has its work cut out when it comes to growing the Lumia and Windows Phones brands.
The latter only accounted for 2.5% of all smartphones in the second quarter of this year according to IDC analysis.
