Nokia RM-976, possibly the Lumia 630, appears at the FCC
Rumor has it that Nokia is about to launch its first dual-SIM Lumia model pretty soon. It could be known as the Nokia Lumia 635 and it will probably be available in single-SIM form, Lumia 630, as well. And now, it seems like the latter variant of the device just appeared at the FCC.

The phone in question is listed as the Nokia RM-976. Naturally, it offers all the usual connectivity features – Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS – while cellular connectivity is handled over the 850/1900 GSM frequencies. From the format of the software version running on the handset, 1052.0000.1351.10049, we can conclude that we're indeed dealing with a Windows Phone 8 device. Furthermore, the filing confirms that the Nokia RM-976 will be 66.7 mm wide by 129.5mm tall, just like what was stated in that leaked product sheet of the alleged Nokia Lumia 630. The sketch of the phone reveals that this new Lumia will have a removable back cover, user-replaceable battery, and a slot for microSD cards.

As is usually the case, the FCC papers don't include anything in regard to the hardware specs of the Nokia Lumia 630. It is expected, however, to come with a 4.5-inch display, as mentioned in the Zauba parcel tracking database. The resolution of the panel could be 720 by 1280 pixels, although that's just an educated guess. Also, it is expected to see the Nokia Lumia 630 running Windows Phone 8.1 with virtual on-screen buttons instead of physical ones for navigation.

That's pretty much all we know about the Nokia Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 so far. It is still not clear whether the smartphone could be announced at the rumored April 19 Nokia event.

I have an 8x now as a backup to my 925. Nothing wrong with my 8x, has been one of my favorite phones so far in its use since launch date. As my hd7 as well.

The 8x was great... HTC should've just let Nokia take over it...

Still loving my 920 and WP8.1 will breathe new life into it but I wouldn't mind having a new device to go along with it. ;)
