Nokia is reportedly planning the first dual-SIM member of its Lumia smartphone family, and now we have a glimpse at what the device — said to be codenamed ‘Moneypenny’ — might look like.
Serial tipster @evleaks posted a product render of a dual-SIM Lumia to his Twitter account. It features two separate tiles for messages and for calls, and dual reception bars, all of which indicate two lines are present.
Win Beta notes that the device is most likely a lower priced Lumia — due to the lack of a third row of apps on the home screen — but that’s seemingly a given since dual SIM devices are popular in emerging markets. The device — perhaps named 630 after the clock counter on the render — could strengthen the Lumia family’s appeal in markets like India and China where using two SIMs is popular.
