Leaked Lumia 630/635 “Moneypenny” screen appears to confirm dual-SIM support, virtual buttons

Last week we started picking up some new details about the Nokia phone codenamed Moneypenny, previously tipped to be one of the first models to ship running Windows Phone 8.1. The handset appeared to be designed with a dual-SIM option, and we heard that it may launch as the Lumia 630/635. Now there’s a screenshot to go along with all those rumors, and it sure appears to confirm what we’ve been hearing.

Based on the signal strength and call/SMS indicators, we sure seem to be looking at a situation where both SIMs will be able to be active simultaneously. We already know that Nokia has its eyes set on developing markets, and giving those users this sort of flexibility may be key to winning many over.

The other big reveal here is one you might be liable to overlook at first glance; check out those on-screen virtual buttons down at the bottom. We’ve heard plenty to suggest that Microsoft was dropping hardware buttons as a requirement beginning with the release of WP8.1, but this is among the first real evidence of the change. Something tells us that we’ll be seeing a whole lot more screenshots like this one in the weeks to come.
