Nokia Lumia 630

Nokia announced that the Lumia 630 will start going on sale today. The Microsoft-owned smartphone-maker says that sales of the Lumia 630 will start in Asia this week and that the device will be headed to Europe and the U.S. after.

The Lumia 630 was introduced recently at Microsoft's Build conference and will ship out of the box with the latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system. There are two variants to choose from — a single-SIM and a dual-SIM model.

The Lumia 630 single-SIM model is expected to retail for 119€ before taxes while the dual-SIM model will go for 129€. The phone will be available in colorful shells that can be swapped out in hues such as bright orange, bright green, bright yellow, black, and white.

The Lumia 630 ships with a 4.5-inch screen with Gorilla Glass 3, a quad-core processor that supports the SensorCore tech used for fitness tracking, and an 1830 mAh battery.

In the U.S., a 4G LTE variant of the Lumia 630 known as the Lumia 635 will be headed to AT&T, Metro PCS, and T-Mobile this summer. Be sure to check out our unboxing and hands-on video below.

Windows phone 8.1 is now official with this device out. Edit: I mean the preview has ended. And whoever said they're testing Xbox music.... Well umm.. There should be an update for that and games hub too.

Another chunky phone from Nokia. The bezel is in different liege even for Nokia standard. If you want to loose market share, keep releasing devices like this.

Well the 620 is better than this. It had flash, a front camera, and NFC, well it's fully functional like a high end device except cutting away a few corners ex: Better camera - higher res display..

I just want someone to buy this to give the OS version so we can settle the debate about whether DP was "final" version or not! :D

Tomorrow will be announced here in Brazil, in a exclusive version with HDTV built in. I don't get why MS didn't mention Brazil in their announcement today. Even MS forget us...

119€ is a great price...what a pitty it will not retail for less than 200€ here. (The Nokia X - 89€ - is being sold here for 150€).

Portugal, according to my profile (profiles are accessible through a click over the user avatar)

Thanks, I was not on a computer, I was using WPC app for WP. Is there any way to access user profiles on WP?

God please let them make one 4" flagship windows phone, tired of those huge display devices. Oh, i missed the topic!

Someone said that the 630 is an upgrade of the 520, I thought the 525 was. If it an upgrade, its. A good one

the main problem with the entry level lumias is the build quality. (cheap policarbonate back i changed my back cover 3 times in half a year on my L625...) and please MS, if some random chinese android manufacturer can put minimum of 1G ram of their devices (ok i know lagdroid), please spend this 5 dollars more to the budget. 

the only thing i hate in the 512 ram devices is the constant high app resuming time. this is ruining the UX.



i hope 930 arrives in philippines by Q3. by that time i'll able to renew my contract and finally switch to 8.1! wohoo... my 7.8 feels so dead. i can still suck it up though.
