Microsoft’s affordable phablet, Lumia 640XL, is launching in the United States next week. Microsoft demoed the device along with a smaller Lumia 640 in March earlier this year and has already been selling it other markets. Once again, AT&T will be selling it exclusively. Don’t you hate these carrier exclusive deals?
This mid-range, affordable phablet has a Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. It sports a 5.7-inch ClearBlack which also has 720p HD resolution. For a display so huge, this resolution looks stretched. Key parts of the Lumia 640 XL are its 13MP camera which uses ZEISS optics and a whopping 3000 mAh battery. It will be compatible with AT&T’s LTE network as well. In case you want a smaller Lumia, T-Mobile is selling the Lumia 640.
AT&T will start selling Lumia 640 XL from June 26. There are various plans available with the cheapest one starting at $8.34/mo for 30 months. Off-contract isn’t officially unveiled, but it should be close to $250.
