Two samples of an unknown 4.7-inch Microsoft phone identified as RM-1127 were spotted arriving in India.

The tracking website Zauba, which had previously revealed several new Samsung devices entering India for testing, has now listed an unknown Lumia device. According to the listing, it has arrived in New Delhi from Finland on the last day of April. As usual, the supplementary information is very limited and only states that there is a single SIM slot and that the display measures 4.7 inches. The value is stated at $70 equivalent, so this is most likely an entry-level device, which corresponds to Microsoft's current strategy. Low-priced yet well-built and responsive, such Lumia phones sell quite well throughout Asia, including India.

It is also indicated that the phone's samples carry fake IMEIs and are meant only for internal testing. Most likely, it will be a few months before the device launches.
