Back at Mobile World Congress 2015 in March, Microsoft unveiled two new additions to its handset range: the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL. Both devices have been making their way to markets around the world in the weeks since then, and most recently, the 640 launched on Cricket Wireless in the US for $129.99 off-contract.
We've known for a while that T-Mobile US has also been planning to offer the Lumia 640, but as Windows Central reports, it seems that we now when it will arrive.
Information via two sources, as well a leaked internal document, points to the 640 launching on T-Mobile on June 17. However, it seems that the new Windows Phone will not be stocked in T-Mo stores - instead, buyers will have to either order it online or via the carrier's call centers, and have it shipped directly to their home, or for pickup at their nearest store.
Key specs of the Lumia 640 include:
- 5-inch ClearBlack IPS LCD with HD (1280x720px) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
- Backside illuminated 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording
- 0.9MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens and 720p video
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, magnetometer and SensorCore
- Replaceable 2500mAh battery
- 141.3 x 72.2 x 8.8mm; 145g
- Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2
Pricing for the 640 on T-Mobile hasn't yet been announced, but the Microsoft Store listed the device at just $89 off-contract a few weeks ago, although that price was quickly removed.
