We have been hearing about a bunch of Lumia devices that could be launched soon. One of the devices we have heard about is the RM-1072 and now thanks to the folks at NPU, potential specs of the upcoming handset have been revealed. According to NPU and based on the specs of the device, it looks like the RM-1072 could end up being a more affordable Lumia 830.
For starters the handset is expected to pack a 5-inch 720p HD display. It is also going to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor (clock speed unknown at this point), and will come with an 8.7MP rear-facing camera, a 0.9MP front-facing camera, 8GB of onboard storage that can be expanded upon via microSD.
If you’re wondering why this sounds very familiar, it is because its specs are almost identical to the Lumia 830. The main exception here would be its cameras. The Lumia 830 comes with a 10MP rear-facing camera with ZEISS optics, while the RM-1072 comes with an 8.7MP sensor instead. It is unclear if the RM-1072 will also feature ZEISS optics but it is speculated that it could be a PureView camera.
In any case the handset has already passed certification in Indonesia as per our earlier report, so we reckon it is only a matter of time before it is made official, perhaps at MWC 2015 which kicks off in March, so do check back with us then for the details.
