Nokia has been rumoured to be working on a smartphone codenamed
Moneypenny, which is also supposedly among the first Windows Phone
devices to run the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 OS, aka Windows Phone
Now, prolific phone tipster, @evleaks has revealed that the
alleged Moneypenny Windows Phone device could be launched as Lumia 630
or Lumia 635. However, the tipster clearly mentions that the naming
could totally depend on the device's configuration. @evleaks tweet reads, "Nokia
Moneypenny = Lumia 630/635 (depending on configuration)."
worth pointing out that the Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia Lumia 620, Nokia
Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 820, Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 1020 belong
to the second generation of Nokia's Lumia line-up, while the third
generation includes phones such as Nokia Lumia 925, Nokia Lumia 625, and
Nokia Lumia 525. Considering the Nokia's device naming nomenclature, we
assume that Nokia might place the alleged Moneypenny in its third
generation of Lumia line-up and call it the Lumia 635.
rumour suggested that the Finnish major has been planning to release a dual-SIM variant of the Moneypenny
In addition, @evleaks also reveals that an upcoming
Nokia Asha phone, thought to be called Nokia Spinel could be the Asha
230 and writes on Twitter, "Nokia Spinel = Asha 230". However, the phone tipster has
provided no details to support the claims.
Notably, both the
alleged Nokia Goldfinger and Moneypenny smartphones codenames are linked
to the James Bond movies. We already know that out of the two Nokia
phones, Goldfinger was the higher-end device. The Nokia Goldfinger
smartphone is said to
feature Nokia's '3D Touch' technology, which would let users navigate
the touchscreen interface without actually touching the display, while
other gestures under consideration included flipping and scrolling.
