Some (probably many) would say there are already more than enough low end Windows Phones, but now NokiaPowerUser reports that another may be on the way.

The RM-1099 is a low-end Windows Phone that has previously been noted to be pass through Indonesian certification in January 2015 and that has also been imported into India according to Zauba.

According to NPU’s sources the device may be similar to the Lumia 435, but feature a slightly higher megapixel camera.

The rumoured specs include:

  • 4-inch, 800 X 480 display
  • 1 GB RAM
  • Dual-Sim support
  • Snapdragon 200 Dual-core processor
  • 2.2 MP – 3 MP rear camera, 864 x 480 video recording (as compared to 2 MP camera of Lumia 435), possibly with autofocus.
  • VGA 0.3 MP FFC
  • 8 GB internal storage

However with the Lumia 435 already on sale in India, such a device will crowd Microsoft Mobile’s low-end line-up even more. We have asked this question many times before, but do our readers think Microsoft needs another low-end Windows Phone?
