Rumor: MetroPCS to offer the Microsoft Lumia 640 in May for $99
The Microsoft Lumia 640 and the larger-screened Microsoft Lumia 640 XL were both introduced earlier this month in Barcelona during MWC. The Lumia 640 features a 5-inch screen (protected by Gorilla Glass 3) with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a 294ppi pixel density. A quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood and the handset carries 1GB of RAM. Native storage amounts to 8GB and those who require additional memory will be able to employ the 128GB microSD slot that is included. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 8MP and there is a front-facing .9MP shooter for selfies and video chats. The device is powered by a 2500mAh battery, which is a pretty large capacity for a low-end handset. The unit comes pre-installed with Windows Phone 8.1 and should be updated to Windows 10 later this year.
If you're interested, the Lumia 640 XL offers a larger 5.7-inch screen (carrying a lower pixel density of 259ppi), 13MP rear-facing and 5MP front-facing cameras and a larger 3000mAh battery. We don't have any hint on what AT&T will be charging for this model, or for its version of the Lumia 640.
