The Lumia 640 will be available for just $29.99 off-contract later this month

Microsoft's Lumia 640 proved itself to be a hugely capable handset when we reviewed it earlier this year, thanks to its beautiful high-def display, impressive performance, and capable camera. It's already a bit of a bargain at its current US price of just $59.99 off-contract - but later this month, you'll be able to buy it for half that amount.

As reports, Best Buy will be offering the Lumia 640 for just $29.99 with no-contract (albeit locked to AT&T), as part of its Black Friday promotions. That's an astonishingly low price for a device that includes these key specs:

  • 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
  • NFC
  • 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

That $29.99 price tag will only be available on the Lumia 640 from November 26 to 28 - although at that price, there's a good chance it may sell out before the three-day promotional period ends.

And by the way, if you needed a further incentive to buy the 640, Microsoft has also said that it will be one of the first devices to be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile.
