Nokia Lumia 630 gets closer to becoming the first Windows Phone 8.1 handset in China

Just like the old Lumia 520, the new Lumia 630 and 635 may mean a lot to Nokia and Microsoft, as they’re smartphones that offer quite many features at a very attractive price. Plus, they both come with the new and improved Windows Phone 8.1 - they’ll be the world’s first handsets to run WP8.1 out of the box.

Nokia probably expects to sell millions of 630 and 635 units, and, mot likely, it will do just that. However, to achieve this, Nokia needs to release the handsets in all the countries where there’s high demand for affordable smartphones. China - the world’s largest mobile market - is the perfect example for that. And it looks like Nokia could start selling the Lumia 630 there pretty soon, as the handset was approved by the country’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. The Lumia 630 that’s been approved is the dual-SIM model (RM-978), which should cost $169.

The Lumia 630 is already advertised at Nokia China’s official website - in a pretty nice way, as you may have noticed in the image above. Nokia doesn’t say exactly when it will release the new smartphone, though. But it should happen sometime in May. It remains to be seen if China will get the Nokia Lumia 630 before any other market, or not.

it is very nice and i would like to give it a try on Window Platform, but for a handset without a flash with such a price...is a no for me, cz at this price i can get a better handset, maybe like Asus ZenFone will do...it even got the Pixel Master thing...

$169 seems a bit steep when you can get a better specd Android for $130 or less.

What sort of better quality? Drop resistant? Thicker plastic?

No flash is a no go. Flash is a handy touch light and taking night shot on car number plate during traffic accident.

If they're not adding a flash,they should add something like asus' pixelmaster technology.But that's okay,i rarely shoot night time photos,i might buy this once it was released in my country...

ClearBlack Display is more than enough for the price IMO.
Too bad no front cam.
