At the event, P. Balaji, Managing Director and VP of Sales for India and Vipul Mehrotra and Head of Smart Devices, showcased the phone. To give a perspective of its performance, Asphalt 8 was shown running on the Lumia 630, along with two other Android devices. From the looks of it, the Lumia 630 was definitely the faster one. The chiefs also touted a special motion sensor, called SensorCore, present in the new phone which can be used for tracking activities.
From the specifications standpoint, the Lumia 630 sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA screen with a resolution of 854×480. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor and coupled with 512MB RAM, the phone comes with Windows Phone 8.1 operating system out of the box. It sports a 5MP shooter at the back, but the absence of a front-facing camera is kind of a downer. Its 1830mAh battery and 8 gigs internal memory are adequate. You can expand the phone memory to 128GB via a microSD card.
The 10,500 and 11,500 price factor is crucial, and in our opinion rather smart. Lumia 630 is now easily one of the most affordable Dual-SIM phones featuring Windows 8.1, along with such a great build quality and, of course, brand power. The ever successful Moto G phone now has some very strong competition.
