First Microsoft-branded Lumia Windows Phone revealed in leaked images

A couple of weeks ago, Microsoft confirmed what we've all known for some time, regarding its plans to drop the Nokia brand from its range of handsets, shifting instead to 'Microsoft Lumia' branding. It also showed off a couple of images of what future devices might look like wearing its logo.

Of course, the entire Lumia range - much of which has recently been updated - is currently on sale with Nokia logos all over them. But future handsets will be released with Microsoft branding, and the first such device has just been spotted on the website of Chinese industry regulator TENAA, in images leaked on social network Weibo.

The images show what seems to be a large but budget-focused Lumia handset, based on the plastic body and simple design, with Microsoft logos on both the front and rear. The handset is referred to by its model number RM-1090, although it is not yet clear what its Lumia product name will be when it goes on sale.

Expect the device to feature lower-end specs to match its cheap and cheerful design. Given that it's now passing through regulatory approval checks, it seems likely that its launch isn't too far away.
