Nokia RM-1018 spotted at the FCC, could be the rumored Lumia 530

Nokia RM-1018 spotted at the FCC, could be the rumored Lumia 530
As we were digging through the FCC's database this morning, we came across a mysterious smartphone that's most likely a new Nokia Lumia model. It is listed under the Microsoft Mobile brand with a model name RM-1018 and with Windows Phone running on it. The handset sports a removable battery, a microSD card slot, and features all the necessary radios and connectivity features, including 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. 

Further hardware specs aren't listed, as is usually the case with phones that we spot at the FCC. What is stated, on the other hand, is the physical size of the RM-1018 – the phone is 62.3 millimeters wide and 119.7 millimeters tall. Having these figures in mind, it is quite possible that the phone in question is the rumored Nokia Lumia 530. It is said that the latter carries a 4.3-inch display, and one would fit pretty well in a phone with proportions like these. Of course, that's just a speculation. 

That's pretty much all that we know about the RM-1018 so far. We'll update you once we learn more about it.

Nokia RM-1018's dimensions are similar to Lumia 52x series. So if this comes with a 4.3" display then the bezel will be really really thin. So this'll most likely be 4" itself. Remaining configuration looks possible.

If 530 comes with these specs and the same price as 525= Best Budget Smartphone.. Dual Core Snapdragon 200 4.3 Inch 480p Display(540p would be great) 1GB RAM 8GB Internal + MicroSD Dual Sim 5MP Rear + Front Cam + Flash 1800 mAh Battery

Hmm although this is not a Nokia/Microsoft X phone I expect one to be sold in the USA. I think the rumors about a Lumia type MS X2 Forked Android smart phone are true look for it to arrive for sale in the American market Place by september 2014 just in time for the Christmas shopping season. Microsoft knows they have to up the specs of the Nokia X2 so it can sell in the Android market in the USA
