With less than a week remaining before BUILD 2014 kicks off, new information on the hardware and software that will be on display at the event has begun to pop online.

Fans of Windows Phone probably are aware that Nokia is planning something big.

The company seems ready to unleash it new family of smartphones, including the Lumia 930 and the Lumia 630, and now some new details on the latter have surfaced. Both will, obviously, be one of the first handsets powered by the new Windows Phone 8.1.

According to the information posted on this Chinese blog, the Lumia 630 is a budget friendly smartphone that will arrive in mainland for just 1,000 yuan outright.

This translates to $150, which should help make it very accessible for everyone.

Some hardware specifications of the upcoming handset have also been confirmed, including the fact that the Lumia 630 looks set to become the first dual SIM Windows Phone 8.1 device. It will also support dual standby, along with networks like GSM and WCDMA.

Virtual navigation buttons are also a given, although the large 4.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display falls quite short of HD resolution with a pixel resolution of 854 by 480.

The smartphone will also do without physical camera keys and LED flash. But at least the dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor should have no trouble crunching through data with its 1GB of installed RAM capacity.

More on this anticipated handset soon.

    At that price it seems more of a 520 replacement than a 620 replacement.

      Exactly, and that is good news. 🙂 At this rate, the 530 could retail for around the $100 mark, which is plain brilliance.

        Both of these are the retail price without a contract I’m assuming? If that’s the case, this a fair and acceptable price.

  • Ted Smith

    Perfect retail price in my view. Not too expensive that people get upset, but still competitively priced enough to make money and let people know it’s a quality product.
