The RM-1072 is a low-cost Lumia model with a 5-inch screen and 8.7MP PureView camera?
Because AdDuplex is a mobile ad network for Windows Phone apps, founder Alan Mendelevich is able to see certain model numbers of new Windows Phone handsets as they are being tested. He usually sends out tweets with information about these "mystery" models. One such model is the RM-1072. According to a report published on Sunday, this is going to be a low-cost alternative to the Nokia Lumia 830.

According to someone with knowledge of the device, the RM-1072 will feature a 5-inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. A quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU will drive the phone and 8GB of native storage will be on board. Additional memory will be available through the phone's microSD slot. On the back of the handset will be an 8.7MP PureView camera while a .9MP snapper handles self-portraits. The unit will support dual SIM cards. The rest of the specs are supposed to match those of the Nokia Lumia 830, which means we should expect the phone to come with 1GB of RAM and a 2200mAh battery.

The RM-1072 is expected to cost $275, lock, stock and barrel. The model has already been certified in Indonesia along with the RM-1099 and the RM-1077, two other mystery Lumia phones that we hope to hear more about soon.


Thanks for the tip!

With a great pureview camera and a higher price tag. Though it should have been snapdragon 410 in my opinion.

With an 8.7 camera I very much doubt it'll be Pureview, seeing as there'll hardly be room for oversampling, and since it's a low budget model, it's unlikely to get OIS or any of the other Pureview goodies...

FIND THE Nokia Lumia smart phone that matches the specs of this smart phones and it's the one that will go out production. Microsoft is now replacing Nokia Lumia branded smart phones with Microsoft branded Lumia smart phones go Microsoft Go ! now they have replace the old Nokia Lumia 920, 930, 1020 and the humongous 1520

Hmm folks will they replace the Nokia Lumia 2520 RT OS Tablet with a microsoft Lumia Tablet. They could use the same case deign and put an Intel Atom quad core CPU in it
with 2 gigs of Ram and have it run full Windows 8.1 / Windows 10. if they sell it at the 350 to
450 price range with a 10 inch 1080 screen Microsoft will have a winner and a tablet people can afford to buy !

Microsoft already has a tablet with RT, the Surface 2. I've owned both and currently have the Surface and I can tell you, the Surface is much better than the 2520.

Its why he said, replace the arm chip with a intel one cherrytrail or something, and resell it using full windows at a price point lower than their surface lines.
