Lumia 635 screenshot leaks to complement last week’s 630 pic


Among the many Nokia devices we’ve heard rumored to be in production, we’ve had a few opportunities over the last several weeks to learn about this hardware codenamed Moneypenny. The story that’s emerged paints Moneypenny as a pair of handsets, the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635, and besides being new additions to the Lumia mid-range lineup, the phones should also bring dual-SIM support – or at least, one of them might. One week ago today we had the chance to look at a leaked screenshot of the 630, and now we get to examine the other side of that coin, with the 635 seeing the publication of a screenshot of its own.

Big difference here: no obvious indication of dual-SIM mode. Instead of those two 3G connections we saw on the 630, this time there seems to be just one – though we take the step up to 4G connectivity. Just like time, we see the return of on-screen virtual buttons, adding even more support to prevalent rumors that Windows Phone 8.1 will drop its requirement for these buttons being implemented in hardware.

What we still lack is a strong understanding of just when the 630 and 635 might launch. Reliance on WP8.1 has us thinking that their debut might be closer to spring, but that’s far from a certainty; we’re not betting on a showing as early as CES or anything, but the following months are still one big open question – for the time being, at least.
