Hardware specs for Nokia Lumia 630 leaked; running Windows Phone 8.1

Nokia is still making Windows Phone devices, even though its deal to sell its Devices and Services division to Microsoft is scheduled to close in just over a month. Today, leaked hardware specs for what may be one of the last Nokia Windows Phone handsets, the Lumia 630, have made their way to the Internet.

The info comes from Winp.cn, who got it off a unknown user of the Chinese Baidu forum. The forum post also showed off some new images of the Lumia 630, and how it compares to the current 620 model. The hardware specs indicate a low cost smartphone but it will apparently be one of the first models to have the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 OS out of the box.

The report claims the 4.5 inch device will have a resolution of 854x480, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, along with 1GB of RAM. Microsoft has already confirmed that future versions of Windows Phone will support the Snapdragon 400 chip.

The Lumia 630 is expected to launch in China in mid-April, which means that Windows Phone 8.1 will likely be available on or before that timeframe. We expect Microsoft to offer a lot more info on the OS at its BUILD 2014 conference in early April.

Wow, couldn't they have at least gotten 960x540 resolution. There can't be that much difference in price, heck I'm surprised anyone is even making 854x480 screens anymore. I know this is a budget phone for China and all but the other specs look ok (for a budget phone.)

interesting with the onscreen buttons.. because they can advertise as the screen being bigger when it is really not (unless you make the buttons disappear) .. makes sense for marketing purposes..

The buttons can be hidden. Actually, how and when they hide can be configured too.

is this the 520 replacement

the 530 will probably be the 520 replacement.. they will probably be exactly the same except the 530 will have a smaller screen.. and maybe worse camera

They use the exact same 5MP camera module on all their budget phones. From Asha to 625.
