It seems that HTC Desire 610 isn’t the only new smartphone announced by AT&T Today. The Nokia Lumia 635 forges ahead with Windows Phone 8.1 onboard. The carrier is going to sell the phone from July 25th for $99.99 with prepaid GoPhone service. In addition to that, two weeks later the career will start selling the phone beginning August 8th for $139.99 at full retail price without contract. The Lumia 635 will be available on AT&T network in two color options – black and orange.
Nokia Lumia 635 Windows 8.1 Phone for AT&T
If you are not interesting paying full price outright, AT&T also gives an opportunity to buy the Nokia Lumia 635 via AT&T Next program for $5.84 per month in 24 payments or 20 installments of $7 monthly.
We must admit that the price for the device on AT&T looks pretty competitive especially if you compare it to other carriers offering the phone. T-Mobile and Metro PCS earlier this month announced that it is going to offer this colorful device to clients for about $170 without a contract.
Furthermore, AT&T, T-Mobile and Metro PCS gave the green light for supporting the Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone in April at Microsoft Build. The Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the first smartphones with updated Windows operating system ready to use.
We wrote about Nokia Lumia 635 already back in April when the phone was announced for the first time by Microsoft, but why not to look at the specifications of the device one more time. Firstly, the Nokia Lumia 635 features a 4.5-inch 854 x 480 IPS display with pixel density at 218ppi. The screen comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for enhanced protection against scratches and ClearBlack technology for vibrant colors. When it comes to processor, the handset is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU for easy dealing with graphics plus 512 MB RAM.
The Lumia 635 will be able to achieve 4G LTE speeds on AT&T’s large national network. As of the camera, the Lumia 635 comes equipped with 5 megapixel snapper located in the back. Unfortunately there is no front-facing camera. The handset also holds an 8GB internal storage, which may be extended up to 128GB with microSD card. In the end, an 1,830 mAh battery is powering the phone.
As we mentioned earlier, the smartphone also features a renewed Windows Phone 8.1 update that gives us Microsoft’s new virtual assistant Cortana, which might be a worthy competitor to Apple’s Siri or Google Now. What is more important, the Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the first Windows phones, which is going to be shipped with the revamped 8.1 OS in the United States.
