Lumia 640

The Lumia 640 is the smaller of the pair, and includes a 5-inch 1280 x 720 screen with what Nokia used to call its Clear Black Display. It’s using Gorilla Glass 3 and Microsoft is even bringing its clever Glance user interface to this model. Elsewhere, there’s 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. With a small amount of storage for a modern smartphone, but it’s on par with similarly priced devices. The new Microsoft Lumia 640 uses a 1.2GHz Qualcomm 400 quad-core processor.
