Last week, NokiaPowerUser revealed the specifications of the upcoming Microsoft Lumia 1330 phablet in an exclusive post. The report on the website shed light on all the major specifications of the phablet and also details on the announcement timeframe. Now, most of the specs that were leaked last week have been confirmed, thanks to a GFX Benchmark screenshot that reveals virtually every key hardware specification of the Lumia 1330.
The screenshot reveals that the device (RM-1062) comes with a 5.7” display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 (257PPI), Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor with the Adreno 305 GPU, 512MB RAM, 32GB onboard memory, 14MP rear camera with 1080p Full HD video capture, and a 5MP front-facing camera with 1080p video capture. Most of the specifications match with what NokiaPowerUser’s previous report had claimed, except for the RAM. While their source had claimed that the phablet will come equipped with 1GB of RAM, the leaked benchmark screenshot points to only 512MB RAM. This does seem a bit baffling considering how the Lumia 1330’s predecessor Lumia 1320 already comes with 1GB RAM. A memory downgrade from 1GB to 512MB doesn’t make any sense whatsoever. Guess we will just need to wait until the official announcement of the device to find out if it really will come with just 512MB RAM.
Meanwhile two new versions of the phone have shown up at the FCC for certification – RM-1066 and RM-1067. The RM-1066 is reportedly the single-SIM variant of the phablet while the RM-1067 is the dual-SIM variant. Five other variants had already been leaked courtesy of AdDuplex – RM-1062, RM-1063, RM-1064, RM-1065, RM-1066, and RM-1067. With the device appearing at FCC already, we suspect that the phablet may actually be announced sooner than MWC 2015 as reported by NokiaPowerUser in their first leak from last week. Although the spec-sheet doesn’t sound too impressive on paper at least, we are still curious to see if Microsoft will include any standout feature on the phablet to differentiate it from Android rivals.
