    So, I'm intrigued by the 640XL (formerly the 1330?).

    I've got to wonder whether MS plans to weed out some of their devices. It strikes me that if the 640XL is going to have a 14MP Pureview camera (something that exceeds November's 10MP Pureview on the 830), then we're really pushing the reset button on the various tiers of handsets that MS is planning to offer.

    My big problem with the 830 was that it was overpriced (and still is to some extent). Looking at the rumored specs for the 640XL, I see no reason that it shouldn't/couldn't be offered at $349 right out of the gate. Even then, that might be overvaluing it considering how truly competitive the midrange market is starting to shape up for 2015.

    In any case, it's going to be a great time to be shopping the midrange. I'm excited that there's a lot of really solid competition. I'm sure we'll all have more to say in a couple hours.

    Here are the detailed specs: microsoft.com/en/mobile/phone/lumia640-xl-lte/specifications

    Looks to be a pretty good phone! I am going to get one and save for a nice flagship later this year!

    The specs aren't bad at all. This is going to be an upgrade from my 920

    This phone seems really interesting. Flagships would be cool, but they come with awful contracts. I might just go for this thing.

    Same here. Being able to pay $250ish with no contract for something like this, I will consider it a worth while replacement to my 920. I'm not sure I'll miss out on the 'Hey Cortona' that needs the higher end Snapdragon processor, nor a 20+ MP camera. Only other options left for a flagship phone would be 1080p, maybe fingerprint reader and, Gorilla Glass 4.

    you should think of the 2015 Lumia tiers as a new start , because already 640 is better than 730 and 640XL is better and cheaper than the 830 , also 435 is a lot better and cheaper than 530.

    the 640XL indeed looks very interesting , it have a great price tag (starting from 210$ for the 3G version) . I waited too much to replace my 925 and I think I found a good replacement .

    the camera looks great but I still don't know if it have OIS or not ! any one know about that ?

    The 640 and XL will I believe come preloaded with win 8.1 and that would include denim right?

    Is it only this device with Zeiss optics or does the 640 have it as well? I haven't found a concrete answer...

    Edit: Zeiss optics not pureview

    Damn. I was seriously considering the 640 as I prefer the smaller screen with a tighter pixel density. But it's looking like it'll be high ppi vs. Zeiss optics.
