Hi-Res Images of The Lumia 640XL

With the announced of the Lumia 640XL this morning at Mobile World Congress, Microsoft has now released hi-res images of the new 5.7″ Phablet device that replaces the aging Lumia 1320.  Like I did with the Lumia 640 images, I’ve put them in this post after the break so those who want to skip the article won’t be bogged down.  The images range from 1.5-3MB in size so it may take a while to load the gallery depending on your network connection.

If you haven’t had a chance to review the specs of the Lumia 640XL you can find them here.  I’m pretty impressed with it given that the Lumia 1320 has been my primary phone for many months now.  This upgrade is quite impressive and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on one to review.

Microsoft Announces the Lumia 640XL

In addition to the Lumia 640 announced today at Mobile World Congress, Microsoft also announced their new Phablet device, the Lumia 640XL.  The 5.7″ device is a replacement for the now quite dated Lumia 1320 (my personal phone of choice) and it is a significant bump up in specifications over the 1320.  Like the Lumia 640, there will be multiple variants of the Lumia 640XL:  Single and Dual SIM 3G models as well as Single and Dual SIM LTE Models.  It is expected to retail for around $245 for the Dual SIM LTE model which is a very attractive price point for what this device has to offer.

The Lumia 640XL will be powered by the Snapdragon 400 Quad-Core processor running at 1.2GHz and will sport 1GB of RAM.  It will have 8GB of internal storage with expansion up to an additional 128GB with a MicroSD card.  It has a 5.7″ IPS display running at 1280×720 with Glance screen and sunlight readability enhancements for when you are outside.  The rear camera is probably the single biggest improvement over the Lumia 1320.  The 1320 has a 5MP camera while the 640XL will have a 13MP camera.  That rear camera can also shoot 1080p video and has a flash.  The front facing camera is a 5MP wide angle fixed focus.  It will also have SensorCore which is something the Lumia 1320 does not have either.

Another interesting change is that the Lumia 640XL will have a user replaceable 3000 mAh battery, something you cannot do on the Lumia 1320.
