Pictures of what looks like the first ever Microsoft Lumia leak
Less than 2 weeks ago, Microsoft announced that it will be dropping Nokia's name on its smartphones from now on, branding all Lumia phones with the Microsoft logo, while feature phones and "dumb" phones would still carry the Nokia one. The team from Redmond also noted that the first Lumias to come out with the new branding will be unveiled "soon", but no more information was given.

Today, we get a glimpse of what may be the first Microsoft Lumia device to hit the market. A few pictures were leaked on Weibo (China's social network), claiming to show a device named RM-1090, which has passed MIIT certification for distribution in China.

It is obviously an entry-level handset, perhaps one of the Lumia 530's class, with an added flash on the back and face cam on the front – maybe Microsoft plans to do what it did with the Lumia 520 and 525 – both devices were released a few months apart from each other, and the 525 is only an incremental upgrade over the 520.

Looking at the pictures, one can confirm (assuming they are authentic) that Microsoft does not intend to change anything about the design language of the Lumias, other than the logo. As far as what hardware these new handsets will have under the hood – we've absolutely no clue at the moment. Keeping our ear to the ground for more rumors or, who knows, a Microsoft announcement maybe.

Tenaa pictures are always ridiculously ugly, so expect that design is much better in real life.

No it won't. It's a shiny piece of orange soup with oversized top bezel and unpleasant brand.

Sony Xperia Z3 has even bigger bezels, for some reason no one cares.

Also,this has to be a bigger 530 so don't expect much.

I spent a few minutes on the lumia 730 in a store yesterday, I'm really impressed by its design, build quality and the AMOLED display especially for dat price. And WP8.1 was good too. I'd really recommend the 730 over the overpriced 830 anyday. This Microsoft lumia looks cheap BTW.

Lol where I live you can get Xperia Z1, LG G2 or Nexus 5 cheaper than 830. Budget flagship my a$$.

How is it obvious of this being a mid-ranger? It would be funny if this turns out to be the most advanced phone on the market..

Microsoft teams up with Fisher Price. Microsoft doesn't seem to get that this is probably their last shot at any market viability assuming that ship already hasn't sailed. They need to come up with something really bold and different and not just re-badge old Nokia designs.

Another low end phone. No one would buy better smartphone with WP. Every Lumia is similar to other Lumia, some Lumia is with a LED flash but without a face cam, other Lumia is with a face cam but without Glance Screen, another Lumia is with Glance screen but without LTE and so on. All Lumias are only lowends.
