Monarch, the long-rumored Nokia smartphone, is in fact the recently unveiled Lumia 635 bound for T-Mobile, according to reports.

The news was disclosed by popular Twitter spy @evleaks. Nokia Lumia 635 is an LTE-based mid-range smartphone. It sports a FWVGA (854x480p) display with pixel density of 221 ppi and ships with Windows Phone v8.1 OS, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 512MB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 128GB) and a 5.0-megapixel camera (no LED flash support).


As of now, Nokia has only confirmed that Lumia 635 will hit the US market this summer for $189 (around ₹11,400) but there is no official word on whether the phone will have a different moniker for the T-Mobile carrier model.

Going by the company's device launch history, there is a probability that Nokia might use a different name for Lumia 635 in the US, like Lumia Icon (Verizon exclusive model), which made its debut in February this year. The company later unveiled its international variant with a different moniker, Lumia 930, powered by the latest Windows Phone v8.1 OS early this month.
