What does make Nokia’s forthcoming Lumia 635 special? It is packing solid hardware along with LTE connectivity and an affordable price point.
The new Nokia will be the first gadget stuffing Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box. Being the first Windows Phone with on-screen navigation keys, it will be available at an affordable price. This will become the first Nokia Windows Phone which does not have a dedicated shutter-button for the camera.
Somehow, to be affordable and SIM-free below the $200 mark, some exceptions around the hardware or feature-set is inevitable. So many times, high-speed data is one of the features which have been compromised in favour of HSPA connectivity.
The Lumia 635does not focus much on the data pinch. Meanwhile, it does have a slower processor than its flagship counter-part, the Lumia 930, it is still a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 fine-tuned at 1.2GHz.It sounds mediocre but it has a calibre and more-than-enough horsepower to handle the Windows Phone OS. Moreover, being a Nokia phone, it will give user privilege to use Drive, Nokia Mix Radio and HERE Maps baked in. Check out the new video here:
