A more powerful version of the Lumia 640 XL is heading to China

Microsoft unveiled the Lumia 640 and 640 XL earlier this month at the Mobile World Congress 2015. Both are decent entry-level devices powered by Windows Phone 8.1 and can be updated to Windows 10 for Phones when available. Now, it appears that a considerably more powerful variant of the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is heading to China soon.

The unannounced device is labeled as RM-1096 by the regulatory agency TENAA, and appears to be quite similar to the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL, but surprisingly, it is a considerable upgrade from it in terms of specifications. Instead of the 1.2GHz quad-core processor in the 640 XL, it will be powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core processor.

Moreover, it will also have a whopping 2GB of RAM, which is double that of the 640 XL. Other specifications and features such as the 5.7-inch 720p display, 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-shooter, are the same.

It is not yet known if the device will actually be sold as the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL in China, since it's considerably more powerful than the global variant. The price and availability date is currently unknown as well.
