We already know that Microsoft is working on a new member for the 600 smartphone series and we can now confirm that the handset will arrive as the Lumia 640. A device with the said moniker was recently approved for sale in Brazil which suggests that its official launched isn’t far.
We’re most likely to see the Microsoft Lumia 640 make its debut at the company’s MWC 2015 event on March 2. WindowsCentral is reporting that the device will carry the model number RM-1109 and come with digital television (DTV) integration which is a key feature for the Brazilian market.
Additionally, we know that the Microsoft handset will be dual SIM enabled and have HSPA+ connectivity along with Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n. That’s about all the information there is on the device, but you can also expect to find an LTE variant for specific markets.
