With all the commotion, hustle and bustle in Barcelona these past few days, we completely missed some breaking news via Twitter tipster @evleaks. The guy unearthed a no doubt real press shot of Nokia’s unannounced Lumia 630 smartphone, whose exact product dimensions have earlier today surfaced courtesy of another source.
Since the handheld measures 129.5 mm (5.09 inches) in height, and its bezels are quite massive, it’s no longer a guess the display sizes up at 4.5 inches. Unfortunately, we know nothing of thickness or weight, whereas Lumia 630’s width is apparently 66.7 mm.
Tipped to carry dual SIM support in a version numbered RM-978, the “Moneypenny”, as it’s dubbed on the inside, will reportedly launch in a single SIM flavor too. That one is allegedly numbered RM-977, might be branded as the Lumia 635, and though it will ditch the second SIM card, it should cost extra, thanks to 4G LTE speeds.
Other rumored features include 1 GB RAM (for both variations), the evolved Windows Phone 8.1 OS, and possibly, dual-core chips clocked at 1.5 GHz or higher. The screen boasts 720p resolution, so all in all, the Lumia 630/635 duo is targeted mostly at emerging markets, but it’s not exactly for every budget.
Any news on a potential release date? None, albeit April is when we expect multiple Windows Phone 8.1 gizmos to go official. So mark your calendars, and start saving up, for Nokia has several aces up its sleeve.
