Nokia Lumia 630 makes an unofficial appearance ahead of Build 2014Written by Hammad Saleem on March 27, 2014 - 05:19AM @hammadsalim
Nokia has already sent out invites for the "MoreLumia" press event at Build 2014. The company is expected to unveil some Windows Phone 8.1 powered handsets at the event, including the alleged Nokia Lumia 930 (Martini) as well as the entry-level Nokia Lumia 630 (Moneypenny).
As far as the entry-level Nokia Lumia 630 is concerned, we've seen several leaks in the past, suggesting some specifications of the alleged handset, as well as its launch date. For those of you who still have doubts about its existence, the handset made another appearance on Chinese shores in a product banner, showing the Nokia Lumia 630 as well as the Lumia 1520 and 1320.
Well, one of the most interesting thing to notice in the banner is the absence of the capacitive touch buttons on the purported handset. We've seen rumors in the past that Lumia 630 will come with on-screen buttons, thanks to Windows Phone 8.1, and it seems it might be true after all. The folks at Winp.cn also mentioned, citing their source, that Nokia Lumia 630 will hit retail in China in mid-April after its announcement at Build 2014 on April 2nd in San Francisco.
The alleged handset is rumored to come with a 4.5-inch display, sporting a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB RAM, dual-SIM support, and should come with Windows Phone 8.1 as its operating system.
Let's just take this with a grain of salt, as Nokia hasn't officially announced the handset -- the product banner posted above does look legit so we have all the right reasons to believe that we'll see at Build. We'll bring you all the updates from Build 2014, so stay tuned.
