Microsoft Lumia 640 unboxing and first look

You guys asked for it – or at least a couple of you did – so I wanted to make sure I shared this unboxing with you. Although we don’t have any concrete release date just yet, the Microsoft Lumia 640 is going to be landing on T-Mobile’s store shelves very soon. I got my hands on the unlocked international model so that you could have a quick first impressions and overview before it eventually arrives in Magenta flavor.

It features:

  • 5.0-inch, 720 x 1280 resolution IPS LCD ClearBlack display
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Snapdragon 400 quad-core 1.2GHz processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)
  • 8MP rear camera with 1080p video
  • 1MP front camera with 720p video
  • 2,500mAh removable Li-Ion battery
  • Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim
  • Upgradable to Windows 10 for Phones once available

As far as budget Windows Phone devices go, I think we could be on to a winner here and definitely one worth holding out for. From what I remember of my time with the 635, this is a much better handset in almost every way. And the great news is that it has LTE support on T-Mo, something that has been sacrificed on some other budget Microsoft devices.

What do you make of it? Will you be upgrading from your old Windows Phones?
