Yesterday I posted that AT&T is now listing the Lumia 640XL on their website as a device that is “Coming Soon”. Now T-Mobile has gotten in on the act with the Lumia 640. When it was launched last week at Mobile World Congress, T-Mobile was one of the first to sign up to get the Lumia 640 along with AT&T and MetroPCS. While none of the carriers have them in stock yet, T-Mobile is now listing it as “Coming Soon” on their website.
Although the updated T-Mobile site doesn’t show a date or price for the Lumia 640, it is generally anticipated that pre-orders will start this week or next with a mid-April delivery date. That mid-
April date is also likely the point where your local stores will be carrying the new device.
The Lumia 640 will run on the Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor at 1.2GHz and will sport a 8GB of storage on board. That can be augmented with up to 128GB on a MicroSD card. The rear camera is a 8MP autofocus capable of shooting 1080p video while the front facing camera is a HD 1MP wide angle. The display is a 5″ HD 1280×720 IPS that does support Glance which if you don’t have, once you do, will love.
As for pricing, you can probably expect between a $149-199 price tag on the Lumia 640 but where that ultimately falls will not be known until orders are taken on them.
