Mysterious Nokia device passes through the FCC – model number ‘RM-1090’

Nokia

Not too long ago, Microsoft took the wraps off the Lumia 730, 735 and 830, but if you think the company is done for the year, think again. Recently, a new Nokia device carrying a RM-1090 model number passed through the FCC, which is usually the last stop before devices hit retail.

The alleged device measures 139.9mm x 71.1mm, which are almost identical measurements when compared to the Lumia 830, so we can expect it to be a 5-inch Windows Phone handset. Additionally, it comes with Dual-SIM, WLAN, and Bluetooth LE support, as well as several telecom frequencies. 

Now, coming over to the more interesting piece of information. Back in August, the folks at AdDuplex mentioned the same device, RM-1090, in their monthly statistics report. They spotted Nokia devices with model number RM-1090/1091 in their data, boasting a qHD resolution of 540 by 960 pixels. They mentioned that the purported handset was spotted mostly in China and Taiwan, and surprisingly enough, the documents were submitted by Microsoft’s office in Beijing.

This could mean that the company is already testing the device, and while there’s no word about what the handset may offer currently, it’s under the limelight and we may get to know more about it as time passes by. Stay tuned to WinBeta, as we’ll update you if we find out any other information about the mysterious device.
