With no sign of a 2015 flagship in sight from Microsoft, power users are getting desperate for a new device; however it seems their prayers won’t be answered so soon. A new phone has appeared online, claiming to be the Lumia 330; as the name implies a new low cost Lumia, going even lower than the 5xx model series.
The leaked phone is rumored to come with a 480p 4″ screen, measuring about 11-12 mms thick, and with dual sim 3G capabilities (no LTE). Surprisingly the phone appears to come with physical OS navigation keys, instead of the traditional soft touch keys we’ve grown accustomed to on low-end Lumias (not that I’m complaining). On the other hand the device appears to be missing a physical camera button, which one again appears to be preserved for *pureview* devices.
The leaked Lumia device is expected to launch sometime early 2015, perhaps at MWC (early march)?
What do you think of the new device? Does Microsoft really need more low end Lumias? Isn’t it time for a new flagship?
