After meekly relinquishing the low-end handset market crown to Samsung last year, Nokia seems to be on mission to recapture the low-end market with an array of affordable phones.
Just a few days back, Nokia launched its first ever Android powered handset in India. So far, we've had heard positive reviews about the Nokia X, making it clear that the company will continue to flood the market with affordable yet feature rich smartphones.
At the same time, Nokia is optimistic about its Windows Phone lineup, which includes three brand new handsets. After months of rumors and speculations, Nokia finally unwrapped the Lumia 930, Lumia 630 and 4G LTE capable Lumia 635 for International markets. Out of them, the Nokia Lumia 630 (Dual SIM) will be launched in India first by summer this year.
At a special event held in New Delhi on Thursday, Microsoft alongside Nokia gave a sneak peek at the dual-SIM version of the Nokia Lumia 630. We went hands on with the Nokia Lumia 630 and here are our first impressions.
Nokia Lumia 630- Design and Display
The Nokia Lumia 630 is a progressive handset for those who are looking forward to buy an entry level Windows Phone. With the Lumia 630, Nokia directly targets the mega popular Motorola Moto G, which is selling like hot cakes in India.
Nokia-made phones have always been loved for their simplicity. The Lumia 630, for instance, is no exception. The handset is lightweight in nature and made out of plastic. It feels comfortable in hand and is not slippery at all. The device continues to promote Nokia's signature styling, which we genuinely loved. And being made available in candylicious colors and a low price tag is what matters to most Indian buyers. Since the Nokia Lumia 630 is expected to be priced on a lower side, the phone does not come with a dedicated camera key.
The display is fairly large at 4.5-inches. The IPS LCD panel comes with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The screen is also covered by the by the Gorilla Glass 3. In terms of design features, the Nokia Lumia 630 is the first device to have on-screen navigation buttons.
