Microsoft’s new Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL accidentally leak out early


Microsoft has accidentally published an article confirming the names of the new Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL ahead of their official unveilings at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Monday morning.

The article, which has now been pulled but can be found in Google’s cache, was posted to the Microsoft news center. It was completely blank, but its headline gives us a clear indication of what we can expect from the Microsoft event tomorrow.

It reads, “Microsoft Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL: keeping you prepared for anything.”

Like most of Microsoft’s more recent offerings, these are expecting to be affordable devices with low-end specifications. Recent leaks claim the Lumia 640 will have a 5-inch display, a Qualcomm 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

We don’t know much about the Lumia 640 XL just yet, but presumably, it’s just a bigger version of the Lumia 640. You can expect it to have very similar specifications, then, accompanied by a slightly larger display.

Microsoft’s event kicks off at 2:30 a.m. ET/11:30 p.m. PT tomorrow, so we’ll know more about both the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL then.
