Microsoft's LTE enabled Lumia 640 XL comes to Malaysia for only RM 999
After nearly three months of waiting, Microsoft Malaysia is finally introducing the Lumia 640 XL with LTE connectivity. Previously, the Lumia 640 XL was only available in 3G options but starting today, buyers will be able to get 4G LTE speeds on the Lumia 640 XL for only RM 70 more.
As for the specifications, both the 3G and 4G LTE models have identical specifications which include a 5.7" HD display, a Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage and a 13MP rear camera with Zeiss lens. Do note that the Lumia 640 XL LTE model available in Malaysia is the single SIM variant and not the Dual SIM variant.
Besides that, the 2015 Nokia 105 which was announced last month is now finally available in Malaysia. In Malaysia, we will be getting the Nokia 105 Dual SIM which is just as awesome as the single SIM version but with 2 SIM card slots.
You might not be impressed with the quoted 1.45" 16-bit HighColor display but the quote 35 day standby time from the 800mAh battery is just unheard of from the smartphone world today. Besides the impressive standby time, Microsoft also quotes that the new Nokia 105 come with Snake Xenzia and Bubble Bash 2. It's also worth noting that the Nokia 105 can store up to 2000 contacts.
Both the Lumia 640 XL LTE and 2015 Nokia 105 Dual SIM will be available through Microsoft (Nokia) stores throughout Malaysia starting today. The Lumia 640 XL Dual SIM is priced at RM 999 inclusive of GST and the 2015 Nokia 105 Dual SIM will go for RM 89 inclusive of GST.
