We’re still several hours away from the start of Microsoft’s MWC 2015 event, where it will join the likes of HTC and Samsung with its latest smartphone announcements. At least, we’ve been holding out hope that even in the absence of a new flagship device we could always see the company bring out some new lower-end hardware. And while nothing’s official just yet, Microsoft seems to have let slip some key details about its announcement on its own website, posting an early page naming the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL.
Unfortunately, the (now down) page gives us nothing more than those names to go on, but at least it’s looking confirmed that we’ll be seeing new hardware at the Microsoft MWC event.
Previous leaks have suggested this hardware could be based around a Snapdragon 400 SoC, and feature a five-inch 720p display – well, for the Lumia 640, at least. Other details include a single gigabyte of RAM, 8GB storage, and a possible 8.7MP main camera (with 0.9MP front-facer). We’d expect the XL to be in the same ballpark, but with different display dimensions (and maybe a new resolution – not much is known about this model for the moment).
Check back with us overnight for official details on Microsoft’s MWC announcements.
