Nokia's first dual SIM Windows Phone handset seems to be the Moneypenny (Lumia 630 / 635)
It appears that Nokia is finally ready to launch a Windows Phone 8 handset with dual SIM capabilities. Only a few days ago we told you about Nokia Moneypenny - a codename that stands for two slightly different smartphones: Lumia 630 and Lumia 635. We assumed that one of these was a dual SIM device. And it looks like we were right.

Famous leakster @evleaks tweeted a screenshot that’s reportedly from the Moneypenny's UI.

The image reveals Windows Phone 8 (obviously) and the existence of two SIM cards that both have access to 3G networks. Also revealed are the presence of Nokia MixRadio, HERE Maps, and the official Vine app for WP.

The screenshot's resolution is 480 x 854 pixels. Windows Phone 8 does not support this resolution, but it supports, among others, the 720 x 1280 pixel resolution - which has the same aspect ratio as a 480 x 854 image. So we're inclined to believe that the Moneypenny is a 720p handset.

Little else is known about the upcoming device for now. However, since dual SIM smartphones are quite popular in emerging markets, that's where Nokia will likely release the Moneypenny first. But let’s better wait for an announcement from the company to see exactly what this is all about.
