In the recent past, a lot of rumours about the successor model for Lumia 1320 have evolved. New reports claim that the single SIM edition will be rolled out as Microsoft Lumia 1335 whereas the dual SIM edition will be released as Microsoft Lumia 1330. Freshly leaked photos of the Lumia 1330/1335 have surfaced in China through Baidu.com that makes it all the more evident that the Windows Phone powered phablet will be unleashed soon.

PhoneArena says that judging by the size of the camera module, it will be a large-sized device. After the Lumia 535, the Lumia 1330 is going to be the second handset to feature the Microsoft branding. It is expected to come out with a cheaper price tag because the 13xx series handsets are considered to be low-end editions of the 15xx Lumia series, says PhoneArena.

One of the leaked images show the Lumia 535 kept inside the back cover of Lumia 1335, says Nokia Power User. Through this, one can understand how big the Lumia 1330 will be. Microsoft has not announced anything on the successor model for the Lumia 1320. However, the rumour mill claims that the device will hit the stands by spring 2015. Neowin says that the Microsoft Lumia 1330 will be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 event in March.

PhoneArena adds that the device will be marketed towards non-US markets. In the U.S., the handset will support LTE connectivity through Sprint. However, its arrival will be delayed.

The Microsoft Lumia 1330 is speculated to feature a 5.7-inch OLED screen that supports HD resolution with a pixel count of 258 ppi. Since the phablet is a low-end device, it will be powered by a Snapdragon 400 chipset featuring a quad-core processor along with Adreno 305 graphics. The chipset is supported by 512 MB RAM. Some other sources claim that the handset will come equipped with 1 GB of RAM.

The internal storage of the device would be either 16 GB or 32 GB. The rear will house a 14 MP PureView technology enabled camera whereas on the front, there is a 5 MP camera. Lastly, it would come preloaded with Windows Phone 8.1 OS.
