Nokia Lumia 635 to land in UK on July 3 for £145, retailer says

By  | 

An online retailer has pegged July 3 as the ‘in stock’ date for Nokia Lumia 635 indicating that the handset will very well start shipping from that day or latest by first week of July for £145. This also hints at the possibility of Cortana being released in a matter of weeks.

Unlocked-Mobiles.com is having the Lumia 635 on preorder for £145 in three colour options including Black, Green and Orange. The 4.7-inch ClearBlack display smartphone features a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal storage with support for upto 32GB through microSD card, 5-megapixel rear camera among other things.

Lumia 635 runs Windows Phone 8.1, which is yet to be released generally. This means that the handset will be the first production handset of Windows Phone 8.1 and the OS could also be released generally around the same time or latter part of July.

Cortana, Microsoft’s answer to Apple Siri, is also available on Windows Phone 8.1 and chances are that Lumia 635 could very well be available on Lumia 635 out of the box.

A teaser video by Carphone Warehouse claimed that Cortana will launch in the UK ‘very soon’ and we anticipate that a late June or July release would be a winning bet.
