AT&T has extended its mid-range portfolio with two new 4G LTE devices, namely the Nokia Lumia 635 and the HTC Desire 610. Both smartphones will go on sale starting July 25 and they aren’t being offered with annual contracts. Instead, you’ll be able to pick up the handsets with the carrier’s GoPhone prepaid service.
The Nokia Lumia 635 is one of the most popular handsets in the company’s portfolio. Not only is it the first to offer Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, but also the first in the series to come equipped with the quad core Snapdragon 400 SOC. Additionally, it features the personal assistant Cortana and various other software enhancements including on-screen navigation buttons.
The phone packs a 4.5-inch FWVGA IPS LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3 on the front and a 5MP camera on the rear. On the inside, there’s 512MB of RAM, a 1.2GHz processor, 8GB storage, a 128GB compatible microSD card slot and an 1830mAh battery. Coming to the Desire 610, this handset packs various entertainment features that are found on flagship devices.
Apart from a 4.7-inch FWVGA display, the handset sports dual front-facing BoomSound speakers. And with Android running the show, the BlinkFeed UI comes complimentary along with the Zoe movie creator suite.
