I may not believe that Nokia and Microsoft together will beat Android or iOS but it’s interesting to watch the two companies and what they’re going to do with the platform and their phones. The acquisition has yet to be finalized. We just know it will be delayed for some time. However, Nokia is aggressive announcing new Lumias left and right.
The two new smartphones run Windows Phone 8.1 and both feature the following:
- 4.5-inch ClearBlack displays
- 480 x 854 FWGA resolution
- Snapdragon 400 quad-core CPU
- changeable plastic back-panels shells
- 3G single-SIM/3G dual-SIM variants (Lumia 630)
- single-SIM (Lumia 635)
Not much difference but the Lumia 635 can connect to 4G/LTE. The Windows Phone 8.1-running phones will also feature the Siri-like Cortana Personal assistant.
Other features include an in-built motion and location tracking sensors, Bing Health and Fitness app, Nokia Imaging SDK v1.2, and a 5 megapixel rear camera.
Phones will be out in five colors this May and July. Starting price is $159 for the entry-level phones but the 4G/LTE smartphone won’t go beyond the $189 price tag.
