The Lumia 640 and the 640 XL launch in India

Microsoft has launched their new set of mid-range Windows Phone devices, the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL in India. The news comes hot on the heels of the launch of the two new devices in the UK earlier today.

The handsets offer a range of similar features, although the Lumia 640 comes with a 5-inch 1280x720 HD display, while its sister device has a 5.7-inch display with the same resolution. The Lumia 640 XL also comes with a much improved front and back camera. The rest of the features listed below are the same on both devices:

  • Quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB onboard storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • NFC
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, magnetometer and SensorCore
  • Replaceable 2500mAh battery

The 640 and 640 XL are also the first two handsets to launch with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 pre-installed, which brings with it Bluetooth keyboard compatibility and the option to pin settings.

The Lumia 640 is available today for 11,999 INR ($193) but will only be available via India's leading online retailer, FlipKart, while the Lumia 640 XL is available for 15,799 INR ($254) through most online and offline retailers. Both devices will also include a one-year subscription of Office 365 Personal worth 3,299 INR ($53) while the 640 XL will also enjoy exclusive offers from MobiKwik and Ola Cabs.
