We heard a short while ago that the Lumia 640 XL would be making its way to AT&T on June 26th. Right on cue, the handset is now available to purchase, with the super-sized phablet available without a contract for the sum of $249.99
The major talking point of the Microsoft-branded device is its mammoth 5.7-inch display. It's a bit of a low-res affair, though, with a 720 x 1280 resolution equating to a rather underwhelming 259 pixels per inch. Confirming its status as a mid-range-at-best device, there's a quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC under the hood, along with a lowly 1 GB of RAM. Then again, Windows Phone is known for running with general fluidity even when the hardware is scraping the barrel.
The 13-megapixel rear-facing camera should offer a decent performance, given that the Lumia name is underpinned by robust point-and-shoot technology, and there is a 5-megapixel offering on the front for those all-important selfies. There's only 8 GB of on-board storage to work with out of the box, but there is a microSD slot for those seeking a little extra real estate.
Completing the run down of the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL's major specs, the handset boasts Cat. 4 LTE, and as you'd expect, it runs Windows Phone 8.1 off the bat.
If you're are interested in the 640 XL, you can find more details through AT&T at the source. If you'd like something a little smaller, you should also check out the newly-released Lumia 640, which is available through T-Mobile and Cricket Wireless.
