A Microsoft-branded Lumia back panel pictured in the wild - posibly the Lumia 1330
We've been hearing about a sequel to the Lumia 1320 for a while now – a Windows-toting phablet that's, supposedly, going to come in single- and dual-SIM variants, named Lumia 1335 and Lumia 1330, respectively. Now, from the depths of Rumorland, beyond the eastern horizon, we get a picture of the upcoming phone's back panel, compared to the new Lumia 535 no less.

So, yeah, it is obviously going to be a big phone and we can see that the opening for its camera sensor is also rather considerable – leaks support that Microsoft will equip the 1330 with a 14 MP camera – quite the upgrade, compared to the Lumia 1320's 5 MP snapper. The rest of the rumored specs list a 5.7", 720p display, a Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1 GB of RAM (some rumors claimed 512 MB of RAM, but come on), and a 5 MP selfie snapper – keeping with the trend, we see.

This will be the second Lumia device to bear the Microsoft branding and it will again be a budget device – the 13xx series are the cheap "versions" of the 15xx Windows Phone phablets. It is expected to be released in the first half of 2015, however, a US release may be delayed.

Yes! 1GB RAM!. 14MP and a 5MP on a midranger is great :)

That tiny LED flash is certainly can't help much in low light condition, Microsoft should put a dual LED or a big single LED flash for such a high resolution camera like this one. Off-topic: Dear PhoneArena, why both Lumia 730/735 and Lumia 830 are yet to be reviewed here? Other sites like gsmarena.com have already reviewed both of it.

It's a budget device, what do you expect? Maybe they need to cut the cost down a bit since they're using Zeiss optics for the camera.

You're right, but l think it would be better if Microsoft exchange the Zeiss lens with 2GB RAM.

I wish WP could harness the potential of ARMv8 soon, SD 400 have become so mainstream by now.

Whats the problem of the S400 beeing mainstream ?? And changing just for "change sake" its just stupid... The S410 might be ARMv8 but has the same performance as the S400 . An upgrade would be the S610 or a S615 , but then it wouldn't me no more a cheap entry/mid ranger

Yoo the Microsoft Lumia 435 is coming out before this smart phone. folks who like Nokia branded Windows smart phones had better buy them NOW because Microsoft is now putting it's OWN LOGO on all new Windows smart phones and will rebrand replacements for the Nokia Lumia smart phones they will continue to have made for sale.

Good phone as long as they don't mis-price it like the Lumia 830. This should be at most $399.
