At Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona Nokia introduced its first and maybe the last Android lineup smarpthones but it doesn’t mean that the Finnish company put Windows Phone devices on hold. In fact, it looks like a few of them are actually in the works and may be introduced soon. Among them is the rumored Nokia Lumia 630, which according to our intel, might be slated for announcement during rumored Nokia event scheduled on April 19th. Moreover, new Lumia 630 render leak confirms five different colors of the handset and possibility of Windows 8.1 OS under the hood.
Nokia Lumia 630 Windows Phone 8.1
The Nokia Lumia 630 has been spotted in a leaked press image posted by the popular tipster @evleaks. The phone poses for picture in five vibrant colors including black, white, yellow, orange and green. The handset appears to have on-screen buttons and no physical camera button, which is consistent with what is expected of the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 devices. Also, it looks like Nokia will paint the remaining physical buttons to match body color instead of using black keys.
The render shows the Nokia Lumia 630 with 3G connectivity which seems to confirm that the phone will be aimed at lower-end sector of the market. According to what we have heard before, the device might sport a 4-inch or possibly 4.5-inch display and 1 GB of RAM. The phone might also have a variant featuring dual-SIM support.
Everything seems to point to the fact that the Lumia 630 will run Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box. If so, we shouldn’t expect the handset earlier than next month. @evleaks suggested April 19th as possible announcement date. Frankly speaking, the date feels a bit odd, first of all because it falls on Saturday which is not a typical day for a big event. For all we know, the leakster could have pulled the date from the render for some upcoming Lumia model. On the other had, Saturday is as good as any other day for a smartphone announcement. We probably won’t know for sure until Nokia itself send invitations.
