Microsoft Lumia 640 XL now available in Canada at brick and mortar Microsoft Stores

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL now available in Canada at brick and mortar Microsoft Stores
The Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is now available at brick and mortar Microsoft Stores in Canada. Try to find it in the online Microsoft Store, and you'll end up wasting your time. The handset is offered in white only, unlocked and priced at the equivalent of $272 USD. Back in April, it was released in India and in the U.K. along with the Microsoft Lumia 640

The Lumia 640 XL carries a 5.7-inch 720 x 1280 resolution display. This works out to a pixel density of 259ppi. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 400 SoC, which contains a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 305 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of internal storage. If you need additional memory, you can use the 128GB capacity microSD slot that is available for this purpose. The rear-facing 13MP camera has an aperture of f/2.0 so that it can handle low-light photography. A 5MP camera graces the front of the phone, and a 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on.

Eventually, the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL is supposed to end up on the shelves at AT&T for those in the states who don't feel like driving over the border and back just for a new handset. Meanwhile, smartphone buyers in Canada now have another Windows Phone option to consider assuming that this is still the platform they want on their intelligent phone.
