Is Nokia working on a successor to the Lumia 520? Presumably that is the case, unless they were planning on having the low-end market dominated by phones like the Moto G and the Moto E. That being said, it was just last week that we caught wind that Nokia could be working on a successor to the Lumia 520 in the form of the Lumia 530.
Now according to a post by @evleaks, word on the street has it that the handset could be making its way stateside and onto T-Mobile’s network where it could be known as the Nokia Rise. We’re not sure if the Nokia Rise name is a codename or if it will be the name of the handset when it launches.
After all with devices like the Nokia Lumia Icon, we don’t see the handset couldn’t be known as the Nokia Rise. Unfortunately @evleaks did not mention as to when we might be able to look forward to the handset, but with information about the device starting to leak on a more frequent basis, perhaps we won’t have to wait too long to find out more.
Based on the specs of the handset that we saw in benchmarks, the Lumia 530 is expected to pack an 800×480 display. It will also come with an Adreno 305 GPU. It’s not much to go on right now, but hopefully more will be revealed in the near future, so check back with us for updates then.
