Ever since the next generation of Nokia Lumia 1320 appeared in a leak, many rumors have been circulating about the specs of Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330. According to rumors, Nokia plans to make a giant upgrade on the camera and release an LTE 1335 model.

According to The Latino Post, one of the most attention-grabbing rumors focuses on the camera.  The Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 is planned on being a 14 Megapixels Pure View Camera, which is a huge upgrade from the 5 Megapixel job on the Lumia 1320. In fact, the front-facing camera on the Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 is planned on having 5 Megapixels, another big upgrade from the 1.2 Megapixel job on the Nokia Lumia 1320.  There are reports from the Master Herald saying that the rear-facing camera could have Zeiss Optics as well as an LED flash

Master Herald also reports on some of the features such as a quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, and an Adreno 305 GPU.  It is planned to have a Snapdragon 400 MSM8926 chipset and quad-core Cortex A7 CPU with Direct X 11 support.  The screen size is definitely phablet sized at 5.7 inches, which is actually smaller than that of the Nokia Lumia 1320. 

Another rumor going around is that there will be some single-SIM LTE version of the Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 going around, and it could have another name of Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1335. 

Then there are other specs that can be found on GSM Arena, such as it will operate Windows 8.1 (which might be upgradeable to Windows 10, perhaps for free).  The video is good for 1080p at 30 frames per second, and it will be available in yellow, white, black, and red.  GSM Arena did not have the battery listed, but most sources agree on the battery being about 3400 mAh, but there isn't a lot of agreement on whether or not the Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 will be upgradeable with an SD card. 

As far as the release date for the Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 or 1335 is concerned, that will probably be revealed after the phone's official unveiling at Mobile World Headquarters in Barcelona in March.  There hasn't been an official report that the phone will be announced there, but there are other phones that are expected to be announced which include the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9, not to mention the Sony Xperia Z4. 

Of course, it doesn't look like Microsoft or Nokia took advantage of CES 2015 to put a spotlight on the Microsoft Nokia Lumia 1330 or 1335.  Then again, Microsoft stopped showing up at CES a few years ago, and Nokia often doesn't bother to have too much presence at the annual consumer electronics trade show, occurring the first week of January in Las Vegas.  Still, that is a very recent opportunity that could have been taken advantage of.
