Microsoft announces new 4G enabled Lumia 636, Lumia 638 in China
Microsoft today officially unveiled the Lumia 636 and Lumia 638 in China, offering affordable options in the region with 4G connectivity to boot. The Lumia 638 will be available from July 5th with the retail price of 1,299 yuan ($200), while the Lumia 636 is going for the same price and can be purchased from July 21st.
Both Windows Phones from Microsoft are powered by its new Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, adding yet more capabilities to the table. A notable difference between the two handsets are the different networks covered (though both are 4G). The Lumia 636 is with China Unicom and the 638 is heading to China Mobile.
Hardware specs for both devices include a 4.5-inch LCD display with Gorilla Glass screen 3, 1830mAh battery, LTE, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, 5MP rear shooter, 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage with SD card expansion.
We previously looked at the Lumia 636 passing through certification in the region, and Microsoft appears to be set on offering an affordable experience with blazing fast connectivity.
