Microsoft is teasing a new smartphone in Indonesia. Microsoft Indonesia has posted an image, teasing a dual-SIM smartphone which looks closer to the Lumia 1320. The image reads, "Dual SIM card made that smart," hinting at Microsoft plans to reveal a new member of its Lumia line of smartphones.
From the teaser image below, it looks like Microsoft could well be coming up with the sequel to the Lumia 1320. The teaser doesn't offer any details beyond the imminent launch of the so-called Lumia 1330. Rumoured specifications include a 5.7-inch HD display and a Snapdragon 400 processor inside.
The screen will be smaller compared to the Lumia 1320 which featured a 6-inch HD screen. However, not too much is expected of a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 720p. Another feature is 2GB of RAM, which would be an improvement over the 1GB in the Lumia 1320.
The forthcoming Lumia 1330 is going to target the mid-end of the smartphone market, currently dominated by the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and the Micromax Yu Yureka.
The Lumia 1330 has already been cleared certification in India, so the launch may take place sooner than expected. At the same time, Microsoft is expected to launch a new smartphone in India on February 19. If rumours are to be believed, the firm will launch the Lumia 1330 - the sequel to the Lumia 1320.
In its last quarterly earnings report posted, the Redmond-based company said it sold 10.5 million Lumia units from October to December 2014. That's up from both the 9.3 million Lumia devices sold in the previous quarter, and the 8.2 million units sold in the year-ago quarter.
