Mobile News reports that UK’s largest carrier EE is now stocking the Lumia 640.
The handset features a 5.0 inch 720P HD screen, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and 8GB of internal storage plus support for a microSD card up to 128GB. It also runs Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2, which brings support for Bluetooth keyboards and, as we heard recently, also Selfie Sticks.
The handset also has another new unique feature – support for WIFI calling, which means you can make phone calls and receive text messages even in the depths of any building. EE will also be the only one selling the Cyan version of the device.
“Losing coverage at home is a major frustration, and WiFi Calling will make a real difference to millions of customers across the UK, from basement flats in London to the most rural homes in the country,” commented Olaf Swantee, EE CEO, in April.
He added: “Our customers want to be able to call and text no matter where they are, and they don’t want to have to think about which app they need to use or if their friends have a particular third party service.”
The handset is available for free on 4G tariffs starting at £16.99 per month, which gives 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. It is also available for £110 on PAYG upgrade or £149.99 for a new connection.
