So, guys and gals!! Be ready to welcome the latest Lumia family member, the Lumia 435 to the Lumia range, soon. Yes, we can now sort of confirm that Microsoft will take the Lumia range beyond 5XX series and the latest entry-level Lumia will be called Lumia 435.
We also believe that earlier leaked Lumia variants RM-1068, RM-1070, RM-1071, RM-1032, RM-1034 and RM-1069 belong to this device only, which will arrive globally in both Single-Sim and Dual-Sim avatars.
RM-1068, RM-1070, RM-1071, RM-1032, RM-1034 are the five variants that can be seen in above screenshots taken from FCC certifications of the device. As you can see RM-1068 and RM-1032 are Dual-Sim variants, while other three are Single-sim variants.
With its variants already passing certification in Indonesia and at FCC in USA, the 4-inch Lumia device which may have hardware touch-buttons and comes with a 800 x 480 resolution display (confirmed), looks destined for a sooner release.
The FCC report also reveals size specs of the device and it seems to have 118.1 x 64.7 mm size, which compares to Lumia 530 size specs of 119.7 x 62.3 mm.
Microsoft Mobile has earlier shared its intent to focus on making market for windows phone. For this Microsoft has planned to kill some future Nokia X family products and bringing them as additional low-cost Lumias for targeting the more affordable smartphone segments. Lumia 435 can be seen as Microsoft’s ultimate tool to take the fight to Android.

And now, Peter has been so kind to tip us with this image from China (though, we can’t confirm the veracity of this image). The size specs match to what was found in FCC certification for Lumia 435. On top of that you can see the Nokia X family design, so it all sums up well.
