Lumia 630, the first WP 8.1 smartphone, sales begin
Available from today, the bright and colourful Lumia 630 offers amazing value, with sales starting in Asia this week, followed by Europe and US.
With two versions to choose from, the Lumia 630 and Lumia 630 dual-SIM offer greater flexibility at an affordable price, while still packing in the latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS, to deliver the most personal smartphone experience.
Windows Phone 8.1 has received plaudits for its amazing new features like new personal assistant Cortana (initially in the USA), Start screen backgrounds for even more personalisation, Action Center, and the little things that really help, like individual volume controls, Data Sense, WiFi Sense, Storage Sense and much, much more.
All included to give you a greater experience in both work and play.
The ClearBlack 4.5-inch LCD (Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass 3-protected) screen and wide-viewing angles mean the Lumia 630 is perfect for whiling away the hours with Xbox games, or reliving precious memories with Storyteller.
At the heart of the Lumia 630 is a quad-core Snapdragon processor that delivers a fast, uncompromised performance with your favourite apps, games and websites.
Of course, that’s not the only core inside this phone. The Lumia 630 also introduces the new low-power SensorCore, tuned and primed to monitor your movements in real-time – without using up the large 1,830mAh battery.
You will be able to discover how many steps you’ve taken, how many miles you’ve run, or how many calories you’ve burned, by simply taking your phone along with you and using apps such as Bing Health and Fitness, which will be updated to use the SensorCore. When combined with free HERE Maps and HERE Drive+ to plan your route and fitness mixes on MixRadio to help you along – the Lumia 630 doubles as a complete fitness companion.
The Lumia 630 brings you greater social experiences, thanks to the record-breaking Word Flow keyboard with shape writing, WhatsApp, WeChat and Instagram, plus a world of apps.
To make those Instagram photos really shine, Nokia Camera is just a click away and helps you become a photo master in no time. There are also Lumia favourites like Cinemagraph, Refocus, Glam Me and Creative Studio to help you capture and share your memories in style.
To help you do more, the new Microsoft Enterprise feature pack, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Office, and OneDrive are also included to let you edit, create and sync your work on the go.
The Lumia 630 and Lumia 630 dual-SIM are expected to be available for around 119€ before taxes and subsidies for the single-sim variant, and 129€ before taxes and subsidises for the dual-sim variant. They are available in a range of bold and beautiful new colours with changeable shell, including: bright orange, bright green, bright yellow, as well as black and white.
