The still unofficial phone starts promotional campaign
The Nokia Lumia 630 is yet to be made official and we are already seeing its promotional campaign. Lately, some posters have appeared at some Chinese retailers in China which give a slight insight into some of the features of the device and these promo posters also reveal some first live shots of the device. The phone is being highly anticipated since it is going to be the first ever Windows Phone 8.1 which will feature dual-SIM, dual-standby functionality.
Since the promotions have alreasy started, we have already managed to extract some information out of them and from what we know so far, the phone is going to feature 4.5" WVGA screen and this particular information goes against the previous rumors which claimed a 4.3" screen. The phone comes with the impressive quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset and has 1 GB in its RAM. Moving on to the camera setup, there is going to be a main 5 MP camera which quite surprisingly features no flash and also no physical shutter key.
With the exact measurements of 129.5 x 66.7mm, the phone turns out to be as tall as the Lumia 920 but this will be narrower and this indicates towards a 4.5" screen which now appears to be more likely. But since it is a budget device after all, we are not sure wheter we are going to get smaller bezels or not. In order to make sure, we will just have to wait till the 2nd of April when the Microsoft BUILD conference starts because this is when the phone will officially be unveiled. The launch of the device would follow in the mid of the month in China and will be available for CNY 1,000 ($160 / €120).
