Redmond, WA, United States (4E) – Microsoft is yet to release a smartphone under the mid-range and the flagship categories after it has put Nokia out of the equation.

The recently released Lumia 535 is clearly an entry level offering from the software maker. The device was the first vessel of the Microsoft Lumia branding that has been pushed through in a well-staged and well-documented acquisition of the year.

Now, while we all know that we are not getting a flagship Lumia device until the second quarter of the year, Microsoft is also reported to release a midrange phablet that will be the mighty successor of the Lumia 1030. The phablet known as the Lumia 1330 has been quite generous in revealing its specs before it’s Mobile World Congress announcement in March.

The device is pegged to carry Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 chip with 1 gigabyte of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory across the board. The handset is slated to be huge with its 5.7-inch display that packs a 720 pixel high definition panel. Of course, it won’t be a Lumia device if it will not tout a powerful camera. This time, the phablet will pack a 14 megapixel Purview unit for the rear camera along with the 5 megapixel sensor on the front panel.

The Microsoft Lumia 1330 will be powered by the latest Windows Phone GDR2 out of the box.
