Nokia “Moneypenny” Rumored To Be The First Windows Phone Dual SIM Smartphone

/ 5 years ago


The year is about to end, but we still hear about new things even when we cut it this close to New Year’s Eve, and just in time for Christmas too! Nokia is bound to release more smartphones, one of them being the Nokia Moneypenny, first revealed about a month ago. Since the, we haven’t got the foggiest about what the device is, just a codename to stick to it. Well, more information just surfaced thanks to @evleaks.

@evleaks posted a screenshot of the Nokia Moneypenny having dual SIM phone capabilities. This will be the first dual SIM phone running Windows Phone. We can clearly see the two signal bars on top and the two separate Live Tiles for messaging and calls.

Another interesting aspect about this particular phone is the on-screen navigation keys. It was rumoured that Microsoft may allow OEMs to have onscreen keys instead of capacitive buttons, and we may be looking at the first device that incorporates this. The idea is to save costs more than anything else, hence the “Moneypenny” name, which leads us to believe this will be a low to mid ranged phone.

A release date is not clear at the moment, though it is said to target developing markets like India and Pakistan. But I don’t think the rest of the world will miss out on a first Windows Phone dual SIM smartphone as well.

Thank you Chip Loco for providing us with this information
