Microsoft has unveiled its first range of Nokia Lumia phones with dual SIM functionality
Microsoft who just completed a $7.2 billion deal for the acquisition of Nokia last month will join the dual SIM smartphone war with its latest Lumia 630 which was unveiled at Microsoft Build conference in San Francisco. Microsoft will bring the battle to HTC, Samsung and Sony who have already gained significant market-share with their dual SIM smartphone models in emerging markets.
“Lumia is our principal smartphone strategy. Lumia phones will come with Nokia’s promise of quality packed with Microsoft’s services like OneDrive, Office 365 and others. Lumia 630 opens a new avenue for affordable smartphones for us,” P Balaji, Managing Director of Nokia India, a subsidiary of Microsoft Mobiles Oy, declared.
The Lumia 630 comes with a ClearBlack 4.5-inch LCD screen and is powered by a quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. The smartphone will run on Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone 8.1 OS and will offer similar user experience and functionality available to high end Lumia smartphones.
