Microsoft Accidentally Leaks New Lumia Phones
Ryan Simmons / 6 years ago
Joining a trend of companies leaking their own products this week, Microsoft has just accidentally leaked two new Lumia phones due to be revealed at Mobile World Congress. Fortunately for Microsoft, they only leaked the names of the new devices in a blank post on their News Center website.
The post, which has been pulled (still viewable in a cache here) had the title “Microsoft Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL: keeping you prepared for anything” – revealing the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL, two brand new phones under the former Nokia brand. While we can guess that the 640 XL will be a bigger variant of the 640, we currently have no further details on the devices, other than specs previously leaked by Nokia Power User. They said that the new phone will have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, a Snapdragon 400 processor and a 8-megapixel camera. the 640 is also to feature a 5-inch screen.
While we know the names for sure now, we’ll have to find out whether the specs are right when Microsoft officially unveils the devices this week.
