Nokia Lumia 630 finally shows up in the flesh


Nokia’s Lumia 630 (as well as the 635) has been a long time coming. The name’s been around since December, and early looks at screenshots ultimately gave way to leaked renders. Odds are, we’ll finally see Nokia go official with this model at its April 2 event, but until that day gets here, will we ever have an opportunity to witness the 630 out in the real world? That’s a definite possibility, and the pics you see up top very well may be our first in-the-wild look at this upcoming Windows Phone handset.

The big problem here is just how very close up we are to the phone itself, obscuring much of the model’s hardware. Without a full look at the device, what makes us think that this is even the 630 to begin with? Well, we can see that it’s running Windows Phone 8.1, what with those on-screen virtual buttons, and the 630 is supposed to be one of the very first models that will give up its capacitive buttons for this new arrangement. We also see dual-SIM support, another feature expected to debut (for Windows Phone, at least) on the 630. Other signs of 8.1’s presence include VPN functionality and a background image behind Live Tiles.

Now all we need (well, besides a more thorough look at the 630, anyway) are some shots of the Lumia 930 – this guy’s kept its profile much lower than the 630/5, and we haven’t even seen a render yet.
