T-Mobile is finally expected to launch the much awaited Lumia 640 on June 17th, as revealed by a leaked internal document as well as a source close to Windows Central. This is a little different from what was revealed last month via T-Mobile’s Twitter handle which said the handset will launch on July 16th. However, the tweet is no longer available now, hinting that T-Mobile may be gearing up to launch the Lumia 640 later this month.
There’s a catch here as well: the handset is expected to launch via ‘Ship to (direct fulfillment)’ system which means that T-Mobile will order the handset for you online or through telesales. Later, it will be either shipped to your address or at a store near you. There’s a possibility that the handset may go on display at third-party retailers, but more will be revealed as soon as the Magenta carrier makes things official.
As a quick recap, the Lumia 640 comes with a 5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1,280 by 720 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a 2,500 mAh battery and an 8MP camera on board. The smartphone ships with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 as its operating system.
There’s no word about the pricing, but it shouldn’t be too heavy on your pocket once it launches in the United States.Further reading: Lumia 640, Microsoft, T-Mobile, Windows Phone
