As expected, two new Lumia handsets have now gone official at BUILD 2014. The Nokia duo of Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 have been in reports for months now, and they were officially unveiled earlier today.
Both handsets are powered by Windows Phone 8.1.
The first handsets to ship with the new platform, Microsoft says that both smartphones will go on sale sometime in May. Nokia has confirmed the availability of the single SIM version, the Lumia 630, in China, India, Russia, Asia and Europe for only $160. The dual SIM variant, will cost users just $170.
The slightly more expensive Lumia 635, however, will be launching in the abovementioned markets, along with the United States, in July for $190 outright.
Here is a video showing the dual SIM Lumia 630 in action:
Either way these are some great entry points for some neat hardware (and software) experience, and there is every chance that both handsets should sell really well around the globe.
Nokia has done really well to price these sets aggressively.
In terms of basic hardware specifications, both Lumia devices are equipped with a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, with a 4.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display of 854 by 480 pixels, along with 8GB of internal storage capacity.
And although the included microSD card allows for storage expansion up to 128GB, the phones are only powered by 512MB RAM — which seems to be the only major downside.
No signs of the Lumia 930, though, and chances are that it will go official at the April 19 event.
