Nokia's first dual SIM Windows Phone handset seems to be the Moneypenny (Lumia 630 / 635)
It appears that Nokia is finally ready to launch a Windows Phone 8 handset with dual SIM capabilities. Only a few days ago we told you about Nokia Moneypenny - a codename that stands for two slightly different smartphones: Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. We assumed that one of these was a dual SIM device. And it looks like we were right.

Famous leakster @evleaks tweeted a screenshot that’s reportedly from the Moneypenny's UI.

The image reveals Windows Phone 8 (obviously) and the existence of two SIM cards that both have access to 3G networks. Also revealed are the presence of Nokia MixRadio, HERE Maps, and the official Vine app for WP.

The

screenshot's resolution is 480 x 854 pixels. Windows Phone 8 does not support this resolution, but it supports, among others, the 720 x 1280 pixel resolution - which has the same aspect ratio as a 480 x 854 image. So we're inclined to believe that the Moneypenny is a 720p handset.

Little else is known about the upcoming device for now. However, since dual SIM smartphones are quite popular in emerging markets, that's where Nokia will likely release the Moneypenny first. But let’s better wait for an announcement from the company to see exactly what this is all about.

No I think it's a FWVGA handset. It runs apps in WVGA, and has onscreen buttons (taking up 480x54).

FWVGA wouldn't make sense. The only resolutions officially supported by WP8 Update 3 are: 480 × 800 (aspect ratio 15:9), 768 × 1280 (aspect ratio 15:9), 720 × 1280 (aspect ratio 16:9) and 1080 x 1920 (aspect ratio 16:9).

Yes it does, It makes extra pixels for te onscreen buttons, while still keeping the 15:9 aspect ratio for apps.

it would make perfect sense , the extra 54 pixels in the length is for the on screen buttons while the interface will retain the normal 800 pixels (length) . B4 lumia 800 comes to the world , Nokia used n9's (which has FWVGA ) with windows phone and on screen buttons and the scenario was exactly like this one.

Well I think u don't remember that evleaks said that on screen keys might be available to wp8.1...so this might support FWVGA....bt I don't see that it is 8.1 as there are no s significant change in ui

It won't stop.. You guys don't realize that the reality of the future of mobile lies with Android, Windows Phone, and Apple, with WP being a big part of the equation.

hey Rodneyej1....question please...I am thinking of buying a 720 but want the 920 which seems to have issues with the battery. Do you know if it was the North American version or the International version that had the problem? How much battery life do you get? was it solved with software update? any help would be appreciated...anyone

You said it.. You only took a quick look at WP in the store, and you've never owned a WP device.. Heck, it was probably WP7 you saw, and you're to foolish, and closed minded to realize that WP has come a long way since then.. What really makes your opinion worthless is that you haven't ever owned a BB10 device, and you've never even seen Jolla, so you don't know what they are like compared to WP..
What makes you think that you are going to convince someone who has loved WP for years, experienced the platform get better, and admits to it being his best experience ever,, that WP is bad❔ How could you convince me of that❔ Why do people like you even waist your breath❔

3G on both the sims, now that's good, hope that atleast one of the sim also supports 4G, and it's Dual sim dual active device, and not dual sim dual standby device, that most Chinese manufacturers churns out. For specs I think it should have atleast 4.7" HD screen, 1GB RAM, Quadcore processor, with expandable storage, and Battery of atleast 3000MAH.........
