Nokia has been rumoured to be working on a smartphone codenamed Moneypenny, which is also supposedly among the first Windows Phone devices to run the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 OS, aka Windows Phone Blue.
Now, prolific phone tipster, @evleaks has revealed that the alleged Moneypenny Windows Phone device could be launched as Lumia 630 or Lumia 635. However, the tipster clearly mentions that the naming could totally depend on the device’s configuration. @evleaks tweet reads, “Nokia Moneypenny = Lumia 630/635 (depending on configuration).”
It’s worth pointing out that the Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia Lumia 620, Nokia Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 820, Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 1020 belong to the second generation of Nokia’s Lumia line-up, while the third generation includes phones such as Nokia Lumia 925, Nokia Lumia 625, and Nokia Lumia 525. Considering the Nokia’s device naming nomenclature, we assume that Nokia might place the alleged Moneypenny in its third generation of Lumia line-up and call it the Lumia 635.
Recently, a rumour suggested that the Finnish major has been planning to release a dual-SIM variant of the Moneypenny smartphone.
In addition, @evleaks also reveals that an upcoming Nokia Asha phone, thought to be called Nokia Spinel could be the Asha 230 and writes on Twitter, “Nokia Spinel = Asha 230”. However, the phone tipster has provided no details to support the claims.
Notably, both the alleged Nokia Goldfinger and Moneypenny smartphones codenames are linked to the James Bond movies. We already know that out of the two Nokia phones, Goldfinger was the higher-end device. The Nokia Goldfinger smartphone is said to feature Nokia’s ‘3D Touch’ technology, which would let users navigate the touchscreen interface without actually touching the display, while other gestures under consideration included flipping and scrolling.
