Nokia Lumia 630 spotted online at Sofica Speedcam running Windows Phone 8.1
Sofica Speedcam is an online service that measures how fast the camera is on a smartphone. And that is where an anonymous person decided to test the unannounced Nokia Lumia 630, aka the RM-974. The test confirmed that the device is powered by Windows Phone 8.1 (build 8.10.12324.0). And with previous rumors on Thursday speculating that both the Nokia Lumia 630 and Nokia Lumia 930 will both first see the light of day at the BUILD 2014 conference, we don't have terribly long to wait for not only the two handsets, but also for the introduction of Windows Phone 8.1.

According to one report published on Thursday, it looks like the Nokia Lumia 630 will feature a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 854, have dimensions of 129.55 x 66.7 mm, be offered in various colors, and will have 3G connectivity. It will also have a 5MP camera without flash, which dovetails perfectly with evleaks leaked press image of the device.

BUILD 2014 will take place on April 2nd, which is less than two weeks away.

Stop talking about the moto g -.- the only place it "set the bar quite damn high" was in some countries like the US. In the rest of the world it is priced way higher... just like the case with nexus series and lumia 520. I don't see why manufacturers who want to add value for money in their smartphones only think of the us.. seriously, theres a world outside the us too -.-

The other day I called my friend who retails mobiles to inquire the price of Nexus 7 2013 and I got a shocker - he said 75000 NGN which is about 460 USD yet when you come here people will be spewing how cheap they are forgettin that few of the world population gets it that cheap.

Finally they will have a well developped OS which adresses most of people's complaints and then they decided to ditch the flash...!!! *sigh* Nokia..

What do you expect from the low-end Lumia 5xx and 6xx phones. If you want flash, the articles also talks of the 930 which is high-end, with 20MP camera and flash, Snapdragon 801, 5" 1080p screen,

Lumia 620 had flash lol

Exactly! Lumia 620 had flash as well as a front camera. So there is no logic in removing the flash for lumia 630! bad move from nokia.

I guess this is 530. I dont think nokia is that stupid to ditch the flash which was present i n the 620. Well dont u think??

This makes sense is the price is lower than the 650, offering 2 low end options at different sizes (instead of having to go higher to get a bigger screen)

And it makes even more sense if they bring the 730 price down to the 625 level , theres not much diferenciation bethween the 625, 720 and 820

530 and 630 - low end
730 and 830 - mid range
930 and 1x30 - high end

It may be the case where you live. But in my country atleast the 16gb moto g costs just $30 USD more than lumia 525. For that $30 extra you get a way superior OS, way superior Screen, quad core muscle(this one is debatable i admit), led flash. So what will you choose in this case.

A lame excuse if you ask me. You could have said microSD slot

Replaceable battery AND microSD slot.

The cloud is a farce, so is a phone that has a lifespan of 18 or so months of heavy use due to it's built-in battery.

The G is a very nice phone, but it could have been perfect had Google's ego not got in the way. Cloud uses data, as many of us do not have the luxury of WiFi all day. It's 2014...if you are going to release a phone with no upgradable memory, it best have MINIMUM 16GB onboard.

In the Android realm, I'll take a Samsung or LG over Moto any day, as I can swap batteries as needed and pop in a 32GB SD card loaded full.

What is this infatuation with the G? Have any of you actually used one, or are you just reading the spec sheet? The camera is a bad joke (flash or not). There is no tethering unless you hack it to death. The button placement was designed by Mr. Magoo and the usable storage is less than 4GB. The display is nice but that's about it. I'll take a 4 year-old Droid Incredible 2 over the G any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

The camera on on the Moto G imo is underrated. For the range it's in it certainly takes better and much less grainy shots then any of the current lg 5mp shooters. I love how the flash on the G also can light a pitch dark room. It also got better with the Kitkat update & an app I use makes it quite good as well. This 630 doesn't look like much of an upgrade over the 620 besides a larger screen.. Nokia is weird with there models & leaving things off. A flash for the camera should be standard now.
