The Lumia 630 is the first Windows Phone device to officially launch with WP 8.1, bringing with it Cortana, Action Center and whole bunch of new amazing features, it’s also the first Dual Sim windows phone in the market; a feature that many users have been asking for. It is also the first Nokia Lumia device to go on sale after Microsoft took charge of the company, making it Microsoft’s first Windows Phone device as well. So let’s take a look at what comes in the box, and our quick first impressions:
The Lumia 630 comes with 512 MBs of internal RAM, 8 GBs of storage (expandable up to 128 GBs via Micro SD card) and a Snapdragon 400 1.2 GHz processor. The Lumia 630 does however do away with the hardware capacitive buttons, replacing them with on screen touch buttons to navigate across the device, as well as doing away with the hardware camera key and LED flash.
These omissions are of course part of what makes the Lumia 630 so affordable, without being a “cheap” phone in terms of build quality, but we’ll be sure to give you our full thoughts on how it performs once we’ve had a proper chance to play with it.
One thing worth noting however is the fact that the phone is actually quite slim, clocking in at only 9.2 mms, which definitely helps in the form factor part of the device (especially when compared to the Lumia 620 which was quite thick). So far the Lumia 630 seems like a pretty interesting and promising device; stay tuned for our full coverage.
