Nokia Lumia 930 will cost $599, Lumia 630 and 635 both under $200

Nokia Lumia 930 will cost $599, Lumia 630 and 635 both under $200
Earlier today, we got the majority of the info on the three new Nokia devices that are on the way, but we didn't learn about pricing and availability for the new Nokia Lumia 630, 635, and 930 handsets. We know that the three devices will be kicking off the shift to Windows Phone 8.1, and now we know that two of the three will be incredibly inexpensive.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is a premium device and as such will carry a premium price tag. Stephen Elop took the stage for the #moreNokia event a few minutes ago, and he started out by saying that the 930 would be released in June in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, and would cost $599 off-contract. The Nokia Lumia 630 and 635 handsets look to be taking on the Moto G. The single-SIM model of the 3G Lumia 630 will cost just $159 on the full retail pricing; and, the LTE-enabled Lumia 635 will be priced at a very attractive $189. No word on launch regions, but it was confirmed that the 630 will be coming to Latin America.

The price on the dual-SIM Lumia 630 also wasn't specifically set, but Nokia did confirm to us that it would be priced "under $200", which is extremely nice for a dual-SIM device. *Update* Nokia has finally given a proper price for the dual-SIM Lumia 630, it will cost $169, which is definitely a competitive price.

Under $200 means $199,99

I hope the 930 won't be an AT&T exclusive (again). This is one of the times that I think Apple got it right, one device on every carrier (I also think they got the massive LTE support one device right [All versions have at least 9 lte bands for cross carrier compatibility]. Other manufacturers really should do this, too).

You should be able to get an unlocked model with no issue.

Blackberry Z3 is still more attractive than 630/635. qHD > WVGA screen Dual core Krait > Quad core Cortex-A7 Support Android APK > No support Android APK 1.5gb Ram > 1gb RAM

And also there's a proper file manager pre-installed in Z3.

Android apk support = lag

Lag is a very rare thing in my friend's Z10, in UI and gaming.

I have Z10 and most of the Android APK apps lag all the time. Viber, Line, Facebook Messenger, and Bank of America. Really really miserable. Even the apps from BB world that are not native apps like Tango or Skype are really useless. Facebook is worse than even the one on Symbian. Stop exaggerating

If you compare only the hardware for the price, moto g clearly is the winner. Talk about OS too.

But Moto G is hard to find in my country, so Z3 is Moto G alternative in my country.

BB10 OS is very smooth like iOS and also more versatile than any closed-source OSes.

Blackberry isn't Nokia, and right now, I trust Windows OS a bit more than Blackberry OS (as sad as that sounds). Who knows? A year from now, Lumias will no longer have the Nokia name on them and Blackberry may very well be out of the handset business.

Yeah, luckily BB Z3 will be released in my country. It destroys all Chinese crap & low end phones from famous brands.

Yawn. Like I said in my other post. I'll stick with my Moto G and maybey try the 925 since it's on such great specials and Tmobile said they will update it. (hopefully they don't break that promise. ) I wanted to try wp again though and unlock it. This 635 I would not call a successor to the 620. (if it's supposed to be) Nokia is all over the map with their models. The lacking of a camera flash is a big time fail! and no front cam either. What is Nokias logic.. The flash should be standard!

I want to see a screen comparison , between the 930 and 1020.. AMOLED vs OLED? what's the difference?

14. Felix_Gatto

Posts: 942; Member since: Jul 03, 2013

Both 930 and 1020 use AMOLED screen, but if you still curious about the difference between OLED and AMOLED you can find the answer in Wikipedia.

512 MB of RAM in Lumia 630 & 635 is a fail. Look at Lumia 525 which has 1 GB of RAM.

Oh...only 512MB Ram? That might make me take back my recent post....

I think a fair price for the following Lumia devices should be Nokia Lumia 930 - $399 to $449 Why: its specs compared to other flagships, Nokia's commitment to affordability for its devices, innovation and availability. Nokia Lumia 630 & 635 - $150 Its quite close to specs to the old Nokia 520 which is only $60 USD, only LTE, Battery Upgrade, Gorilla Glass, More Colors, Slightly Larger Screen. Nothing phenomenal

That's mad, bro. Most Full HD phones cost more that $500, except chinese phones of course.

Windows Phone fan very disappointed that the 930 isn't coming to AT&T.

Apparently it's not even coming to the U.S. at all :(. Hopefully we get something better and prettier Not a huge fan of the Icon and 930, as they're a bit too similar to the iphone and similar phones, whereas the 925, which I own and love, looks and feels nicer and slimmer and doesn't dig into one's hand as much with the curved edges.

A new LTE phone, under $200 retail? This might actually make me try out WP. Moto....your next version of the Moto G needs to have LTE..... Just found out the Lumia 630, 635 has 512MB ram.... :-(
