Despite the fact that Nokia unveiled a handful of new devices at its major event in October, the company is believed to be working on multiple devices right now that are expected to be released prior to the close of its deal with Microsoft. Purported code names of these devices were first leaked back in November, that’s when we heard that there might be a dual-SIM Nokia smartphone code named Moneypenny. An alleged screenshot of this device has been leaked which hints at a couple of features that it might tout.

Moneypenny has previously been rumored to be a dual-SIM device. The screenshot clearly shows two signal strength indicators which reveal that 3G radio is housed inside the device. On the home screen there are multiple tiles for the phone and messaging apps, presumably for each SIM, though that might make things a bit confusing for users. Judging by the homescreen’s layout, it appears that the Moneypenny will ship with Windows Phone 8.1 pre-installed. Also evident in the screenshot are virtual Windows, search and back keys that have previously been physically built onto the device itself. Rumor has it that Windows Phone 8.1 will replace capacitive buttons with virtual ones. The leaked screenshot comes from @evleaks, who has been known to be right about these things.
