Barcelona, Spain – This morning, Microsoft has unveiled the Lumia 640, the latest budget-friendly Windows Phone in the Lumia lineup.
The Lumia 640 builds off of the strengths of the Lumia 635 but brings none of the drawbacks. With improved hardware and a larger, 720P display, the Lumia 640's dual-SIM LTE design should open Windows Phone to a whole new market.
Additionally, Microsoft is tossing in a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote on the Lumia as well as on one PC or Mac and one tablet. The subscription comes with 1TB of OneDrive storage and 60 free minutes of Skype Unlimited Worldwide calling per month.
Pricing of the dual-SIM LTE version of the Lumia 640 is expected to be around $180 (159 euros) while the dual-SIM 3G should retail for $155 (139 euros) both starting in April.
