A new Nokia Lumia 735 handset may debut next week alongside the Lumia 730 and Lumia 830 models, if a new leak is to be believed.
Nokia has scheduled a launch event for next week, on Sept. 4, when the company is expected to take the wraps off its latest devices. The Lumia 830 and Lumia 730 models have already leaked online on several occasions so far, but it now seems that another device may be joining the fray: the Nokia Lumia 735.
While the Lumia 830 and Lumia 730 have had their fair share of leaked images and unofficial specifications, the Lumia 735 now comes as a surprise. According to the latest leak, this handset may be a version of the Lumia 730 "selfie phone," but sporting 4G LTE connectivity.
As you can see in the image above, the new leak that surfaced on Baidu shows the Nokia Lumia 735 with 4G LTE on board and the Lumia 730 with dual-SIM support, with the two handsets shown side by side.
As GSM Arena points out, the fact that the Lumia 735 is listed with 4G and the Lumia 730 appears with dual-SIM doesn't necessarily mean that the latter will not support LTE. The publication believes that both models should be 4G LTE-enabled, and the image merely shows two different colors of the Lumia 735. .
"Both handsets look like they have a 4G connection at the time of the shots, so we may in fact be staring at two of the Lumia 735's color versions, the most conservative ones actually: white and black," writes GSM Arena. "Undoubtedly, we're bound to see many more daring hues for this model, like for its non-LTE capable sibling."
In terms of appearance, the Nokia Lumia 735 seems to sport a polycarbonate unibody design with thin bezels around the display. When it comes to specifications, this purported Lumia 735 should be along the same lines as the Lumia 730, which is rumored to come with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage capacity. Other rumored specs include a 2,000 mAh battery and a 5-megapixel front shooter that would make the phone perfect for selfies. On the software side, all new Lumia devices should run Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box.
Nothing is officially confirmed at this point, but Nokia's upcoming event is just a few days away. This means that we'll soon know all there is to know about the company's latest Lumia devices straight from the source. We'll keep you up to date as soon as more details become available, but take everything with a grain of salt in the meantime.
