To complement the high-end Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL in its portfolio, Microsoft has been rumored to be working on a bunch of midrange and upper-midrange smartphones, including a Lumia 850 and a Lumia 750.

Well, one of those has recently been certified by 3C in China. Its model number is RM-1182, though that obviously doesn’t tell us if it will be sold as the Lumia 750 or the Lumia 850.

Whatever the case, the handset is said to sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 617 SoC, which features a 1.5 GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU, as well as support for Cat.7 LTE. It’s the same chip as in the HTC One A9.

The newly certified Lumia handset is headed to China Unicom (at least this particular version of it is), and will not have fast charging as per the data released by 3C. It’s manufactured by BYD.

Past rumors had the Lumia 750 coming with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a 5.4-inch 1080p touchscreen, and a 10 MP main camera. It may become official at MWC next month.
