The information about the specs of the handset is limited. It will be equipped with a 4.5-inches screen. The phone was recently imported in India from Finland for thorough testing. According to the internal document, it will support single SIM. The guessing about the RM-977 suggests that it will be part of the Lumia line. If rumors turn out to be true, it means that the phone will be powered by Windows Phone platform. The costs for the RM-977 are 7966 Indian Rupees (equal to $130 USD).
