Nokia Lumia 636 surfaces in China with TD-LTE support

Last month Nokia made the Lumia 630 and Lumia 635 official. Those two devices share all specs except for each one’s mobile network support. The Lumia 630 is 3G-only, while the Lumia 635 also comes with support for 4G LTE.

But not, apparently, TD-LTE, which is the variation of the high-speed standard that China Mobile uses for its 4G network. China Mobile, as you may know, is the world’s biggest carrier when counting number of subscribers.

There is however a Lumia 63x coming with TD-LTE on board, and it’s been revealed to have the model number RM-1010 by TENAA, the Chinese authority that certifies smartphones for sale in the country. It doesn’t yet have an official name that we know of, but given the fact that China Mobile’s Lumia 525 is called Lumia 526, we assume that this will be launched as the Lumia 636. It could also be called Lumia 638, since there’s a phone with that name coming soon too, but that’s less likely.

The Nokia Lumia 636 should basically be identical to the Lumia 635 on the inside, with that one main difference – TD-LTE support. And it’s been branded by China Mobile on the outside, as you’d expect from a handset that will be exclusive to that particular carrier.
