It isn't the first time we are seeing the new Microsoft-branded Lumia handset on the web.

Apparently, the forthcoming smartphone also seemed like a distant cousin of the Lumia 530 in terms of design and style.
However, today, more details were brought to light. Running the Windows Phone OS, the upcoming handheld is said to feature a 5-inch HD screen and should be available in a wide range of colors, including black, white, green, blue, and orange. Something simialr to the previous Lumia handsets we have seen gracing the market.
"It appears that the device will be specifically aimed at the Chinese market, so no other countries will get it, but similar Microsoft Lumia handhelds should launch in the rest of the world very soon," a Softpedia post states.
