A new mobile phone from Microsoft has been spotted getting the approval of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, but so far the details of what it might be remain a mystery.

The listing for the device, which was dated July 3, shows that the official model number for the phone is RM-1018. Aside from the fact that it has a single SIM card slot and a microSD port, there's nothing else that's been revealed about this product's hardware.

While the FCC documentation doesn't provide much in the way of clues, there is already speculation that this phone could be the rumored Lumia 530, the long awaited successor to the popular budget priced Lumia 520. The documents do show that the phone was tested with the Nokia BL-5J battery, which is used in the Lumia 520 and 525. However, we certainly won't know for sure until Microsoft makes an official announcement on this new device.

What do you think RM-1018 will turn out to be?

Thanks to Bill for the tip
