Rumors are what we have been dealing with in the past few months while building up to the highly anticipated Mobile World Congress (MWC) event that has now successfully kicked off in Barcelona, Spain. However, it seems like the rumors are potentially never ending and more have arrived related to Nokia ahead of its soon to start MWC presentation.
According to reports, a new press image of the upcoming Nokia Lumia 630 smartphone has been leaked online, thanks to popular Twitter-based leakster evleaks. And as the image shows, Nokia's latest mid-range smartphone (also the successor to the popular Lumia 620) will now arrive with on-screen buttons, while dropping the traditional Nokia capacitive touch buttons under the screen, and support for a third live tile column.
The new device, expected to release this year according to the tipster, certainly looks like a budget handset from Nokia, guessing by its design. However, there haven't been an confirmation made related to the device's specifications or a specific release date.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en-gb"><p>Nokia Lumia 630, 2014 <a href="http://t.co/hrxVCYfkiQ">pic.twitter.com/hrxVCYfkiQ</a></p>— @evleaks (@evleaks) <a href="https://twitter.com/evleaks/statuses/437607061967237120">February 23, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
As of now, if the rumors are to be believed, Nokia's Lumia 630 will arrive with a 4.3-inch WVGA display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor that's clocked at 1.7 GHz.
Also, the device is said to support 1 GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2000mAh battery and 8 GB of internal memory with the option to expand it further via a microSD card slot also available.
The leak also follows an announcement which Microsoft made on Sunday saying that it will support "soft keys" in an upcoming software update for all phones running the Windows Phone platform.
