Nokia’s alleged Moneypenny Windows Phone is said to come in single SIM and dual-SIM variants, if a new leaked screenshot is to be believed.
The phone tipster, @evleaks, has posted a new purported screenshot that claims to reveal the Start screen of the alleged Nokia Moneypennny, a codename linked to the James Bond movies. The leaked screenshot shows the alleged Nokia Moneypenny supporting single SIM and also supporting 4G networks.
The tweet by @evleaks reads, “Moneypenny (635 flavor). ” The tweet suggests that the alleged Nokia Moneypenny might come in two SIM variants – single and dual. We assume that the dual-SIM variant of the alleged Moneypenny might be targeted at emerging markets like India.
In addition, the rumoured Nokia Moneypenny seems to be finally confirmed as the Nokia Lumia 635, if the new tweet by @evleaks is to be believed. Earlier, we reported that considering Nokia’s device naming nomenclature, we expect that Nokia might place the alleged Moneypenny in its third generation of Lumia line-up and call it the Lumia 635.
Further the leaked screenshot also shows Live Tiles on the Moneypenny’s Start screen for Nokia MixRadio, HERE Maps, Internet Explorer, Photos, SkyDrive, Microsoft Office, Instagram, Asphalt 8, Vine and Vimeo app for Windows Phone.
Much like previous leaked screenshot, this one too shows on-screen navigation control buttons for back, Start and Bing search, which till now have been a part of capacitive touch buttons. If the leaked screenshot turns out to be true, Microsoft can be expected to get rid of capacitive buttons on the Windows Phone devices, and replace them with on-screen navigation controls.
An earlier leak by @evleaks had suggested that the first dual-SIM Windows Phone might be the alleged Moneypenny.
Previous reports have already revealed that Nokia’s upcoming Moneypenny might be one of the first Lumia devices to run the revamped Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, codenamed ‘Blue’.
