The Nokia Lumia 630 (aka ‘Moneypenny’) is expected to be the follow up to the Lumia 620, but with some beefier specs. The reason? It will be one of the first Windows Phone 8.1 devices, so it will be getting a lot of attention.
Information about the device has now come forwarded from Nuoji it, a user on Baidu who leaked the information yesterday. In addition, a new, lower resolution product shot showing the Lumia 630, Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520 all placed together has also been found.
An image from what looks like a device manual confirms the size of the device, along with the specs. It was only a few days ago that Evleaks leaked out the first render of what the device will look like.
Lumia 630 specifications (unconfirmed, but likely)
- 4.5 inches touch screen
- 854x480 resolution
- Virtual touch keys
- Size: 129.5 x 66.7mm.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1GB RAM
- Dual SIM (variant)
While not the most exciting phone, it should be a solid upgrade from the Lumia 620, especially since that phone has a very small display. Still, the Lumia 630 will make a splash very early on as the new 8.1 phone is expected to launch in China in mid-April
That’s right after Microsoft’s Build conference, where 8.1 will officially be unveiled. We wouldn’t be surprised if the Lumia 630 makes an appearance, as this would make a good 8.1 developer phone.
