Nokia has finally announced the Nokia Lumia 630 in India, which will soon be available in stores today in both single and dual SIM variants with price tags starting from Rs 10,500. The single SIM version comes with a price tag of Rs 10,500 while the dual SIM variant will sell for Rs 11,500. The device comes with a couple of firsts for the Indian smartphone market. Apart from being the first dual SIM Windows Phone device in the market, it will also be the first device to officially run Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box as well.
Beating the Lumia 930 to the launch, the Lumia 630 is in all probability one of the much-awaited handsets in Windows Phone world. This is because the handset easily beats the Lumia 525 (except for the RAM size) which has indeed been doing really well in the budget segment for Nokia.
The Lumia 630 will directly compete with the Moto G from the Android space. The Moto G was a great success, set new standards for the Android platform and quite frankly is an all-rounder that runs pretty smooth on KitKat 4.4.2. Where the Lumia 630 will probably out do the Moto G, is in terms of device construction and expandable memory; which can be taken all the way up to a hefty 128 GB.
Where the Moto G wins, is in terms of the app gap and the fact that the device sports a sharp 4.5 inch 1280 x 720 pixel screen as compared to the 854 x 480 pixel screen of the Lumia 630. Both handsets are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400, with the only downside of the Lumia 630 being the paltry 512MB of RAM.
So which handset will you go in for, now that there is a worthy competitor for the Moto G in the Windows Phone space?
