UK: Nokia Lumia 630 officially out on May 29 for £89.95, though you can already grab one for £149.98
Today Microsoft has officially announced the Nokia Lumia 630 for the UK. This handset was first unveiled last month alongside the high-end Lumia 930, and last week we’ve seen it go up for pre-order in the UK. Now though, we get launch details straight from the new owner of the Nokia mobile business.
The Lumia 630 is expected to officially become available on May 29, and it will be priced at a very affordable £89.95. However, if you’re willing to pay more one retailer boasts that it already has the Lumia 630 in stock, ready to be shipped to you.
In this case you’d be dealing with online retailer Unlocked Mobiles, and it will send you a SIM-free and unlocked unit for £149.98 of your hard earned cash.
On the other hand, whether the official launch price of £89.95 is for SIM-free handsets or ones sold on Pay as you go is not clear, thanks to the wording in Microsoft’s press release. So there is a chance that the Lumia 630 is only £89.95 on PAYG, and it will be a bit more SIM-free. Official distributors, which will start selling it on May 29, include Carphone Warehouse, EE, O2, Tesco, and Amazon.
The Nokia Lumia 630 has a 4.5-inch 854×480 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera (no front-facing snapper), a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 21 Mbps HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,830 mAh battery. It runs Windows Phone 8.1.
