Microsoft has introduced to the Philippine market the Lumia 630, the first Windows Phone with dual SIM feature. Powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon S400 and running on Windows Phone 8.1, the phone will be available later this month for Php7,990.

The Lumia 630 features a ClearBlack 4.5” LCD screen and showcases a new matte polycarbonate design with changeable shells available in bold new colors bright orange, bright green and bright yellow, in addition to matte black and white.

Lumia 630Selfie addicts will have to use the rear 5MP camera as the Lumia 630 does not have a front facing camera. The phone only supports 3G so those who want LTE capability will have to wait for the Lumia 635 which will be launched later this year.

Inside the Lumia 630 is 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that is expandable by up to 128GB using a SD card.

Other features include one swipe notifications from Action Centre, the new Microsoft Enterprise feature pack, Microsoft Office, OneDrive, HERE Maps and Drive+. The Live Tile interface lets users adds some customization to the interface, such as a photo overlay effect.

The new SensorCore also brings low power motion sensing to help people track their activity all day without using up the large 1830mAh battery – perfect for exercise and exploration using apps like Bing Health and Fitness.

For connectivity, the phone features USB 2.0, BT 4.0, WLAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n, A-GPS and Glonass, and a 3.5 mm audio connector.

The BL-5H 1830mAh battery offers, when fully charged, 16.4 hours maximum talk time (on GSM) and up to 13.1 hours when on 3G.

“With high-end technologies and apps, a seamless Windows Phone 8.1 experience and the first ever Dual Sim Lumia empowering people to connect on their terms, we believe the Lumia 630 Dual Sim is undoubtedly the best smartphone in its affordable price range,” said Karel Holub, General Manager, Philippines, Microsoft Mobile Devices Sales.

The new Lumia smartphone sits higher in the range than Nokia’s X series of Android smartphones.

Also available is the colorful Nokia MD-12 Bluetooth Speaker (SRP Php 1,990), which connects wirelessly using the new easy to use Device Hub app and plays for 15 hours and transforms almost any surface into big-sounding bass. It’s the perfect accessory to help people get the most from music, videos and games, and also functions as a convenient speaker phone on the go.
