The Lumia 640 is coming to Cricket Wireless this Friday [Update]

Cricket announced today that the Lumia 640 will be coming to its network this Friday. We've known for awhile that the Lumia 640 would be coming to T-Mobile users in the US. Like T-Mobile, it doesn't appear that its larger brother, the Lumia 640 XL, will be joining it.

The Lumia 640 was announced early March at Mobile World Congress 2015. You can see the specs for the device below:

  • 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

  • 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

  • 141.3 x 72.2 x 8.8mm; 145g

The Lumia 640 is a solid device and includes the coveted 1 GB of RAM that previously wasn't seen in many of the low-end Windows Phones. We also found out recently that the Lumia 640 would be among the first phones to receive the Windows 10 update, making the device a reasonably safe investment.

Unfortunately, Cricket's page isn't live yet, so information regarding pricing and color options is unavailable. Cricket previously offered the Lumia 635 for $100 and the Microsoft Store recently listed the T-Mobile version of the Lumia 640 for $90, so it is safe to assume it will be priced somewhere in this range.

Update: The Cricket has now officially announced that the phone will be coming to its network this Friday. The phone will cost $129.99 off contract. If you buy the phone between May 15th and June 20th you can nab a free Office 365 Personal and Skype subscription.
