Video shows Nokia Lumia 630 running Windows Phone 8.1
The unannounced Nokia Lumia 630 is expected to be unveiled April 2nd at the BUILD conference. A video of the device in action has been found along with a number of still pictures. Between all off the images, you can get a look at some of the things that you will find on Windows Phone 8.1 such as the new camera U.I., the Action Center and on-screen navigation.

The Nokia Lumia 630 is expected to offer a 4.5 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 800, which results in a pixel density of 207ppi. Under the hood, you should find a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1GB of RAM. If you're not impressed with the way the phone looks in the video, keep in mind that it probably is wearing some sort of disguise in the form of a protective case or shell.

In just a few days, we should see the Nokia Lumia 630 and the Nokia Lumia 930 both introduced at BUILD. We were expecting to see Windows Phone 8.1 unveiled, but that has been delayed for a week or two.

Can't wait to get 8.1 on my L1520. So glad we live in a world that has free thinkers and come up with something other than icons in a grid

cant wait to get it on my 1020 there should be an option to install themes and widgets like on android, i dont like tiles....

It wouldn't really be unique without tiles though.. Without tiles its just like everyone else. I think more options need to be available but tiles are what sets WP apart from the others.

true it makes them diffrent, but giving options to use install themes and other add ons and googles apps would be great,... on android you can install every feautre of wp8 on android, the paid version is the best, which costs 6Euros looking forward what wp8.1 will bring, but im eagrly awaiting for wp8.5 or wp9 i like wp but so many so much feautres are missing, that makes me more like hating, disliking it,,, come on you lazy buggers ms

I agree that is why I bought a windows 8 smart phone plus the Windows 8 "NT" OS core is strong so MS programmers and Developers can write good Apps for it. the windows tiles shape has to be changed though to make the tiles look better like round of the 90 degree corners or make the 4 sides of the tiles curve outward a little

There is a new setting for that, you can choose now if u like more tiles or less. Not sure trough if smaller screens beneath 4.5" will support it :)

The Nokia Lumia 1520 or 1320 will be amazing with Windows Phone 8.1. Cant wait to pick up either. It'll be a huge upgrade from my Lumia 520.
