Exclusive: RM-1072 a cheaper Lumia 830 alternative with 8.7 MP camera, Dual-Sim & 8 GB storage

Lumia 8309 front NPUOut of three new Lumia device families that were first spotted in Adduplex, we have exclusively reported about Lumia 435  and Lumia 532 (RM-1069, RM-1070, RM-1071) and these are official now. We have also reported exclusively about Lumia 1330 / Lumia 1335 (RM-1062, RM-1063, RM-1064, RM-1065) details.

One device family that we haven’t reported much about other than what we knew from Adduplex data is RM-1072,  but that’s going to change now. Here is what we have learned about this device.

RM-1072 may be launched as a low-cost Lumia 830 alternative and will have a 8.7 MP (may be PureView) camera and 8 GB storage. Other specs are similar to Lumia 830.

Updated:

We can now confirm that the device will have a Dual-Sim variant too and may be priced around USD 275.

Have a look at all the details below.

5-inch, 720p display

1 GB RAM

Dual-Sim

Quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor

8.7 MP rear camera ( May be PureView unit from Lumia 920 / Lumia 925)

0.9 MP FFC

8 GB internal storage

MicroSD card support

RM-1072 has already passed certification in Indonesia and we will keep a keen eye to share anything more that we come to know about it.

Do tell us, whether you would be interested in this device if it comes with similar pricing to Lumia 730?

    Microsoft does with smartphone exactly as it did with Windows and Office versions: it multiplies for nothing useful the version to confuse users and complicate the choices!
    Examples: Windows, starter, windows home, windows professional, windows ultimate…etc. Almost the same with office and now with smartphone (Nolia-Lumia)!
    Personally, I found this policy confusing and nonsensical!
    Simply ridiculous!
    Microsoft should reduce the number and focus on few affordable models (three models per year are largely enough); one cheap, another midd-cheap and a third expensive for arrogant, geek and superficial people to vent with!

  • Indonesia still doesn’t have Lumia 830, and we all are asking for it since last year. It would be disappointed if it doesn’t has LTE (dual sim is never be LTE)

    Sounds like an interesting model – just a little awkward that it still has the 0.9mp front camera when 5MP is starting to become almost standard. 😛 But certainly the very nice screen and back camera are more important to most users – other than teenagers/”I am a celebrity” of course… 😀

  • CrASUL

    My guess is that it will be a dual sim device

    • Kamal

      Yes, we can confirm that too 🙂

    Why would you get this over a 730?

    Also, what on earth are they going to call this thing? I am one of those weird people who think that the current naming scheme is the way to go when they release as many phones as they do, but they are sort of stepping over a ledge at the moment. They can’t name a crippled version of the 830 as 835.

    • viipottaja

      Err. Better screen, better back camera, better (subjective of course) design. Also, this sounds like a variant aimed at carriers – i.e. MS can offer it cheaper than 830 to them and thus get it on many more store shelves, and it can be offered by the carriers at a very low price to consumers.

        also, it seems aimed to developing markets. The current 830 is kinda aimed at western markets with its only 4G sexy slim metal body variant.
        The above phone with its duel sim capability, lower price, abit lower specs (due to lower price) can do well in developing markets.
