Earlier today, evidence came forward for an unreleased RM-1109 Lumia phone destined for Brazil. Unfortunately, no other information about the device was found except something related to battery size. Speculation suggested it could be the rumored 'Lumia 1330'.

Now, the same site that trekked through Anatel's documents have churned up another record connecting RM-1109 to the unannounced Lumia 640. Janela Tech is reporting that this device is dual SIM and sports integrated digital television (DTV), something that is increasingly popular in that region.

It is currently unknown if the Lumia 640 is an exclusive to Brazil, which seems likely, or another mass-market lower-midrange Lumia. More information about the phone is under embargo at Brazil's regulatory agency, Anatel, until after Mobile World Congress in March. The timing suggests we will hear more about this device during Microsoft's conference. Alternatively, it may only receive a local announcement, due to the smaller market involved.

Update: New information has come forward to suggest that this is really the unannounced Lumia 640

Mobile World Congress is just a few short weeks away, and Microsoft is expected to unveil some new additions to the Lumia line. No flagships are on the horizon to our knowledge, not at least until later this summer. However, an expected replacement for the aging Lumia 1320 is certainly plausible, bringing the affordable phablet series up to par with the '30 series of Lumias.

The site Janela Tech has found a filing with Anatel, the regulatory agency in Brazil similar to the FCC that jives with a new Lumia model they may be for a Lumia 1330. The model number RM-1109 is tossed around the documents, but the only piece of real information about the device is its battery model and size: BV-T5C model and 2500mAh of power.

File this one under odd, but it looks like Microsoft is set to bring a regional variant of the Lumia 530 to Brazil in the coming weeks. Website Janela Tech has combed through some documents from ANATEL, the Brazilian regulatory agency akin to the FCC and found references to a 'Lumia 532' phone likely due in the near future.

Not much is known about they mystery device, although the model name RM-1032 is used in the documents. The phone appears to be 3G only, dual-SIM and due to the 5xx series we can bet it is nothing to excited over, likely being just a regional variant.

Budget phones have been Microsoft's theme for the last few months, and that trend does not look to let up. Latest rumors have a Lumia 435 and Lumia 1330 on the immediate horizon, likely for a Mobile World Congress announcement or perhaps even sooner.

The Lumia 435 has not been discussed much around here due to the lack of hard evidence, but now that looks to be changing. ANATEL (Agencia Nacional de Telecomunicacoes) is Brazil's equivalent of the FCC in the United States. As such, they occasionally let slip new phones before their public announcement, and that is what has happened with the Lumia 435.

The Lumia 830 is the next upper mid-range devices to come from Nokia, now owned by Microsoft. The device is seen in alleged photos a few weeks ago, along with various bits of information including unique releases for US carriers and a global launch.

Now, the Lumia 830, complete with 'Microsoft Mobile' internal branding, gets caught passing through Brazil's Anatel certification (analogous to the FCC in the US). The phone is all but official now, and so far, it looks to be one interesting phone.

Good news for those in Brazil, you can add the Nokia Lumia 710 to your Samsung Omnia W and HTC Ultimate (aka Titan). The news comes from WinPhone Blog (fan site) who noticed that the mid-range phone passed Anatel, that country's equivalent of the FCC. While no release date is specified, the rest of the filings info is confidential till January 1st, 2012 but from previous experience, WPB expects a mid-January release.

The Lumia 710 should be a popular phone with it mid-level specs and solid design. No word on pricing or carrier, so we'll keep an ear out.

Brazil already launched the HTC Ultimate aka Titan, so why stop there? Looks like TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile) is slated to get the Samsung Omnia W to compliment the Ultimate in that country.

The news comes via WinPhoneBlog Brazil, who confirm that the device has passed Anatel (that country's version of the FCC) including pics of the battery, charger and even the full manual (PDF) for your perusal.  In case your forgot the specs of the Omnia W:

  • Super AMOLED screen of 3.7 "
  • 8 GB of storage
  • 512 of RAM
  • VGA Front Camera
  • Rear 5 MP camera with LED Flash and Autofocus
  • 1500 mAh battery
  • Dimensions of 115.6 x 58.8 x 10.9 mm
  • Weight 115 g
  • DNLA
  • WiFi HotSpot

In other words, a solid middle of the road phone, which seems like good marketing. No word on release or pricing, but it should only be a matter of time before we find out.

We've mentioned how the HTC Ultimate aka Titan, with its massive 4.7" Super LCD screen managed to pass through Brazil's FCC equivalent ANATEL. That's a pretty good sign that the phone is coming to Brazil sooner than later, heck we even saw its accessories and manual to boot.

Now we have a date for its announcement (but not release): October 20th

On that day, HTC is set to reveal "the launch of the year" with Lee Ittner, Vice President from HTC Latin America, Cristina Palmaka from MS Brasil and Hilton Mende from Vivo (a Brazilian carrier) in attendance.

At the press conference, we can expect to see the Ultimate née Titan in its full glory and we bet a release date will be given too. Our guess is it won't be more than a few weeks into November, which gives you some time to save up for that slick phone!

About two weeks ago we broke the news of some new device names appearing in the app "I'm a WP7!". The first was the Radar 4G which within days became to be known as T-Mobile's new Mango phone coming this holiday season. Now, we can shed some light on another mystery phone: the HTC Ultimate.

The Ultimate, by name alone, sounds to be a massive offering and indeed it appears to be the HTC Titan, but for other markets. In this case, the Ultimate is the official name of the Titan for Brazil. The information comes by way of the Brazilian ANATEL, the regulatory agency analogous to the FCC in that country. The full device manual has been posted (and shared with us) including photos of the Ultimate along with its accessories.

Now, to be clear, we don't have the specifications of the Ultimate except for the battery: 1600 mAh, the same size as the Titan. In addition, from the photos, it looks to be an exact match so we're going to just assume they're the same phones--but you can be the final judge.

The good news is the Titan née Ultimate, is coming to Brazil. The bad news is the Ultimate née Titan, is not some super-awesome unannounced Windows Phone and instead, HTC appears to be just offering two Mango devices this holiday season.

Big thanks to Albert P., for the information!
