Nokia Rise is T-Mobile USA’s version of the Lumia 530
A few days ago Evleaks shared the news that the Nokia Lumia 530 — the successor to the 525 — is in the pipeline. It was suggested that the upcoming handset has the codename the Nokia Rock, but there has been a new development.
Today the renowned leaker revealed that the device codenamed the Lumia Rise is the T-Mobile USA version of the Lumia 530. There’s still no word on the specs or availability, but it’s likely that more details will creep out over the coming weeks.
