Microsoft Lumia 740 Review – Powerful Phone At a Cheap Price
Microsoft will launch a new mid-range, Lumia 740, and we know about its existence because it was spotted in official documents in India, although they don’t mention the name of the model. However, the specs are pointing to this device which will hit the market soon enough.
According to Nokia Power User, the phone will come in two variants: single SIM or dual SIM and will be a bit more expensive than the Lumia 640 XL, which means that it could cost around 110 dollars, but the price will vary by market. The phone is expected to be released this fall and will run on Windows 10.
However, the design of the Lumia 740 hasn’t been leaked yet, and it has been imagined by the Microsoft Lovers, who posted an image on Facebook showing the back and front of this upcoming phone. Besides the design concept, they also published a list of technical specifications that will probably make their way to the Lumia 740.
So, here’s what to expect from this phone: a 5inches AMOLED ClearBlack display that could support Full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, it might be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core, backed by 1GB of RAM, it could support 8GB of internal storage, expandable up to 128GB and the battery might have a capacity of 2650 mAh.
The camera on the back has Zeiss lens and it has a resolution of 13MP, with LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and supports video recording at 1080p. The front camera is 8MP with LED flash, wide-angle lens and can record Full HD videos. The single SIM variant supports 4G connectivity and the dual SIM variant supports 3G and 4G.
Regarding the design imagined by the Microsoft Lovers, the Lumia 740 has a polycarbonate casing with Fabula Design look, the edges and the back are flat and the corners are almost sharp. This concept doesn’t bring anything new to the tablet, because most of the Lumia phones have a similar look, but the person who imagined the design of the Lumia 740, added a large camera area on the back and the Microsoft name is written on the vertical.
