The Nokia Lumia 630 is about to get a successor in the form of the Microsoft Lumia 640, which evidence suggests could be presented next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
While the company’s MWC 2015 plans are still under wraps, there is talk that Redmond is preparing a few new Lumia models that may be presented at the industry gathering in Spain in March. And one of them could be the Lumia 640.
It was recently spotted in official documentation in Brazil.
Little is known about the device for now, other than the fact that Microsoft wants to bake in support for digital TV from the go in this new affordable smartphone — at least in this market.
The Lumia 640 will likely launch in other regions too, but the Brazilian variant is supposed to come with features that enable digital TV for buyers in the country. Microsoft is expected to team up with local companies that offer this service.
Probably free for a limited time and then available as a subscription.
Since television is the focus of this device, word is that the Lumia 640 will get a bump in screen size from the 4.5-inch display on its predecessor to a full 5-inch screen that makes much more sense on a device with digital TV support.
Dual SIM support is also expected, but we should have the full details in just over a week. Microsoft lifts it embargo on March 2 when the Mobile World Congress kicks off.
