Evidence Emerges for New Nokia Lumia Models
Recently, it seems like all the news about upcoming Nokia Lumia handsets has dealt with device codenames. Those include models like the rumored Catwalk and the Flame we just saw on a leaked roadmap. Today, however, we actually have some numbers to look at, with signs emerging of three new Lumia models.
First up, there’s the 520 and 720, both of which have just received their certifications from Indonesia’s version of the FCC. That should serve as strong evidence that these two are very much real, though exactly what they’ll be is still unclear. One theory has it that they could arrive as Windows Phone 8 versions of hardware similar to the 510 and 710, respectively, and while that claim comes from what Nokianesia calls a reliable source, we don’t have any evidence to support the allegation. Presumably, they’d need to be a little beefier (more RAM) to handle WP8.
Separately, the Lumia 1000, the first four-digit Lumia model, has made an appearance in a registration form used by China Mobile. Just by sake of being such a high number, it feels like this could be a higher-end model, but there’s nothing yet directly connecting it to specific rumors of such hardware.
