Nokia seems to be all set to announce the rumored RM 860 smartphone, which is expected to be the latest variant of the Lumia 920. Recent reports indicate that a Nokia device named RM-860 has passed through testing via Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
"The team over at AdDuplex, who provide ads for Windows Phone apps, revealed to The Verge today that it has spotted instances of the RM-860 being tested on Verizon through its logs recently," reports The Verge.
Furthermore, The Verge reports "AdDuplex says the device has the same screen resolution as the Lumia 920 (1280x768), one that's particularly unique for Windows Phone 8 devices. We're told that Nokia's Laser will have similar, if not identical, hardware specifications to the Lumia 920."
This is not the first time that a Nokia device with the code name RM 860 has appeared. Previously gamer entries revealed that a Nokia device code- named RM 860 has been listed as "Occasional Gamer."
Rumors of new Nokia Lumia handsets have been floating for a while now. Previous rumors have indicated handsets named EOS, Catwalk and Laser. Speculations also suggest that Nokia may launch a refreshed Lumia 920 with an aluminum body.
Currently, AT&T is the sole carrier of the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. Verizon carries the Lumia 822, which is the carrier's version of Lumia 820. It may be good news for Verizon subscribers to find a top-end Windows Phone 8 smartphone in the carrier's portfolio.
