Microsoft Lumia 640 joins AT&T's prepaid GoPhone lineup, will set you back $79.99

Microsoft Lumia 640 joins AT&T's prepaid GoPhone lineup, will set you back $79.99
Earlier today, the carrier quietly added another smartphone to the GoPhone series, the $79.99 Microsoft Lumia 640. The new addition comes after, just a couple of days ago, AT&T added the Asus Zenfone 2E to its affordable GoPhone prepaid lineup.

Previously available through some retailers as well as T-Mobile and its pre-paid subsidiary (MetroPCS), the Microsoft Lumia 640 is one of the most popular Windows Phone 8.1 smartphones currently around, a feat that it has achieved through a balance of low pricing and decent hardware.

At, $79.99, the Lumia 640 offers a good value if you're in the market for a smartphone that can do the basics, but not much more than that. The handset comes with 5-inch IPS display running a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels at a PPI of 294, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset paired with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of MicroSD-expandable integrated storage space. 

In the camera department, the Lumia 640 comes with an 8MP primary shooter, as well as a 1MP secondary shooter on the front. The handset is powered by a 2500mAh battery, one that easily lasts through the day on a single charge. Check out our full Microsoft Lumia 640 review for a more detailed analysis of the handset.

At the moment, the Microsoft Lumia 640 comes with Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, but the handset will get a free update to Windows 10 Mobile once Microsoft's new mobile OS rolls out later this year.

Make sure to drop us a comment and let us know if you'll be grabbing the Microsoft Lumia 640 from AT&T now that the handset is a part of the carrier's GoPhone lineup.
