Microsoft Lumia 640 and 640 XL will be launched by AT&T
Announced by Microsoft earlier today, the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL are two new affordable Windows Phone handsets that will be released around the world starting April. In the US, the 640 and 640 XL will both be available via AT&T, though the carrier didn't say exactly when it's going to start selling them.

Both the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL will run Windows Phone 8.1 (with the latest Denim update) at launch, but Microsoft confirmed that they'd get Windows 10 later this year. The Lumia 640 is the smallest among the two new smartphones, sporting a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. The handset further features a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 8 MP rear camera, 0.9 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2500 mAh battery. As for the Lumia 640 XL, this offers the same Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space, but comes with a larger, 5.7-inch 720p display, plus better cameras (13 MP on the back, and 5 MP on the front), and a bigger 3000 mAh battery.

AT&T didn't say how much its Lumia 640 and 640 XL would cost. However, Microsoft announced that the LTE variants of the 640 and 640 XL (which are almost certainly the ones to be released by AT&T) would be priced at €159 and €219, respectively - which probably means $159 and $219 for the US market (off contract). Check out our Lumia 640 hands-on and Lumia 640 XL hands-on for a closer look at the two new Microsoft phones.
