Microsoft this week launched its latest mid-range smartphones, the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL. The first market to get both of them is India, where the 640 costs $192 (11,999 INR in local currency), while the 640 XL can be purchased for $254 (15,799 INR). The Lumia 640 is also available in the UK, where customers can get it for £169.99.
As you may know, the Microsoft Lumia 640 has a 5-inch 720p display, and is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. Other features include an 8 MP rear camera, 0.9 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2500 mAh battery.
The Lumia 640 XL is also powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor, but it’s bigger than the 640, coming with a 5.7-inch 720p display and a 3000 mAh battery. The 640 XL also has a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera. Both new Lumias run Windows Phone 8.1, and will be updated to Windows 10 sometime this summer. In the US, the Lumia 640 will be available via AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS, possibly starting May. The Lumia 640 XL will be launched only on AT&T (at least for the beginning).
