HTC and Nokia reportedly working on dual-SIM Windows Phone devices

Almost all low-cost Android phones have one thing in common: two SIM slots. A recent report in Windows Phone Dang tells us that both HTC and Nokia are working on Windows Phone devices that will mirror this functionality.

Reportedly, these dual-SIM phones will support dual standby mode and are targetted at the emerging markets. So, we can most likely expect the devices to be made available in India, if and when they’re launched. The report says Nokia could announce at least one such phone some time in 2014. On the other hand, there is no specific time frame for HTC dual-SIM WP phone yet. There is no word either on how many dual-SIM Windows Phone devices the companies will launch.

We had hear before that Nokia is preparing a mid-range dual-SIM phone. Last month, evleaks revealed that Nokia is working on a dual SIM Lumia 720. Taking the track record of the tipster into account, it can be assumed that Nokia is working on such a device. The existing Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch display, Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 8GB in-built storage and 6.7-megapixel rear camera, and is priced between the Lumia 620 and 625.

We could however see Nokia pull a surprise on us later this month. The company is scheduled to unveil multiple devices at the Nokia World event that will be held in Abu Dhabi on October 22. We are likely to see the Lumia 1520, the first ever Nokia phablet, and a Windows RT tablet at the event.
