Just last week, Mister Mobility did a feature on sub-N30,000 ($187) quad-core devices. If he had waited a bit before going live with that article, there would have been a Windows Phone smartphone on the list. Today, Microsoft has announced the Lumia 630, a quad-core Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone that costs just about N27,000 ($169). Here are some key features of the 630:
Operating System: Windows Phone 8.1
Display: 4.5-inch FWVGA display, 854 x 480 pixels resolution, ClearBlack LCD, Gorilla Glass 3
Network Data: GPRS. EDGE. 3G. HSDPA. (The Lumia 635 variant has 4G/LTE)
Processor: 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
Memory: 512 MB RAM
Internal Memory: 8GB eMMC with
External Memory: up to 128GB micro SD card support
Rear Camera: 5 megapixel camera
The phone also comes in single and dual SIM variants.
The Lumia 630 was launched in India today and costs INR 11500 there. We do not have any information about launch date for Nigeria. The quad-core party sure gets more interesting. We wouldn’t be too wrong to say that the mid-range smartphone segment now belongs to quad-core processors; would we?
