We already knew Nokia is working on a some sort of smartphone with the codename Moneypenny. Now a new info from popular leakster @evleaks says the company is also releasing a dual-SIM variant of the upcoming device.

Nokia's Moneypenny along with Goldfinger will be the first smartphones to feature the WP 8.1 Blue out of box. It appears that the new release will finally bring support for dual-SIM smartphones to the platform, allowing Nokia to compete more successfully in developing markets, where a second SIM slot is often seen as a mandatory feature.
If the earlier rumors are to be trusted, WP 8.1 Blue will also bring a notification center, better multi-tasking and a Siri-like Cortana voice assistant.
There is no word on the specifications and the launch date of Moneypenny, but since Microsoft is expected to announce the WP 8.1 OS in early 2014, we might see the device going official either at CES or at MWC.
