Microsoft's Lumia 640 is now available for £99 SIM-free in the UK

Microsoft's Lumia 640 was one of our favorite devices of 2015 - but it's since been superseded by the newer metal-framed Lumia 650 in Microsoft's updated, and much smaller, range of handsets. Inevitably, that means that the 640 is being phased out of retail channels, leading to lower prices for buyers.

The Lumia 640 has held its price well in the UK; over the last twelve months, most retailers have been selling it for around £110-£130, although it has occasionally (and only briefly) dropped below that price range.

Now, Amazon.co.uk has reduced the price of the Lumia 640 to just £99.16 SIM-free and unlocked. That price is only applicable to the black model, though; Amazon is still selling the orange version for just over £109. Meanwhile, the Microsoft Store is continuing to sell the handset in both colours for £129.99.

The 640's key specs 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
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC
  • Ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, magnetometer and SensorCore
  • Replaceable 2500mAh battery
  • 141.3 x 72.2 x 8.8mm; 145g

While the Lumia 640 ships with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 onboard, it's eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile. You can find out more about how to get the upgrade here.
