Nokia may be once again creating some exclusive phones for regional carriers and this time it’s reportedly the Lumia 505.
The phone first popped up on the questionable Facebook page of Guerrero Móvil, where not much info was provided besides the image and it being exclusive to Telcel. At the time, that wasn’t enough for us to run with the story as there was no other confirmation of that device (and to be honest, anyone could throw together that carrier mockup).
But now over at WinP.cn, they have evidently come across Wi-Fi certification information for this phone, which certainly seems to confirm that this low-end device exists.
The Lumia 505 (RM-923) reportedly features an 8MP rear camera and is most likely Windows Phone 7.x device (there’s no evidence that it is a Windows Phone 8 phone). The Lumia 505 is thought to be the sister device of the Lumia 510, which also features Windows Phone 7.x and has the “old” Windows flag for the logo. In other words, that’s not a mistake but on purpose. Overall, this looks to be a similar approach to the Lumia 810 on T-Mobile versus the Lumia 820 released worldwide.
Not much else is known about the Lumia 505, but presumably it will have a single core 1GHz CPU, 800x480 4” TFT display, 4GB of storage, 256MB of RAM with a 1300mAh battery.
