Microsoft could unveil Lumia 750 and 850 at MWC 2016
Rumors of a new Lumia smartphone came about early last month when the device passed Indonesian certification. Now, the same RM-1182 model number has shown up again under certification for use in China. The device could very well be the Lumia 750 or 850, the latter of which leaked numerous times before the end of last year.
If the source proves to be true, then the RM-1182 should be coming to the China Unicom network. Unfortunately, there is still no mention of the official retail name of the device or any hard specifications other than the lack of fast-charging support.
The rumored Lumia 750 or 850 is expected to carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 5.5-inch or 5.8-inch FHD display, and at least 16 GB of internal storage space with Windows 10 Mobile. The timing of the leaked certifications and render images suggests an official reveal sooner rather than later with the Mobile World Conference being a likely time frame.
The updated mainstream Lumia lineup follows after the official announcement of the flagship Lumia 950 and 950 XL earlier last year.
