We’ve had the opportunity to hear about Nokia’s Windows Phone model RM-860 a couple times recently, first learning that it’s coming to Verizon, and just yesterday finding out that it has a 1280 x 728 resolution, possibly painting it as the carrier’s version of the Lumia 920, if not another higher-end Windows Phone 8 device. We’re still waiting for confirmation on just what device it actually is, and as we look forward to Monday’s Nokia MWC press event, where there’s a chance we might hear the phone announced, it’s managed to pop up in the FCC’s database, where it shows its certification paperwork.
Indeed, the presence of a CDMA radio and support for Verizon’s LTE bands confirms what we’ve heard about RM-860′s carrier affiliation. Unfortunately, this is one of those FCC filings without a whole lot of pictures, or anything juicy like a manual, but there is something interesting to be found regarding the FCC label’s placement itself.
With the 920 as we already know it, the label went inside the battery compartment, while the RM-860 places it on an outside edge. Which edge, though? If this was the top or the bottom, wouldn’t we be seeing either a headphone jack or a micro USB connector? For now, it’s a bit of a mystery.
