Nokia Lumia 636 passes certification in China, heading to China Mobile

Nokia Lumia 636

The Nokia Lumia 636, bearing the model number RM-1010, has passed through certification in China. If you're not familiar with the Lumia 636, it's essentially the TD-LTE version of the Lumia 635. It's also worth noting that this will mark the very first TD-LTE Windows Phone from Nokia (now Microsoft after the acquisition of Nokia's devices division).

The single-SIM device itself supports TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/GSM and runs Windows Phone 8.1. Unfortunately, while the Windows Phone has passed certification in the region, there's not yet a date as to when the Lumia 636 will go on sale in China. We are, however, looking at a device in the lower end of the Lumia family, and one that's hoped to sell well.

There's also the mention of a Lumia 638 in the photo above, which could well be the dual-SIM variant.

SA3DX says:

I wonder what's the 620 successor gonna look like.

Look like a bag of ass like this device hhhhhhhhhh !

Aashish13 says:

It will be a good piece if its use is for business purpose. Its should be priced like employees in China can afford this piece. Windows phones for business has a much broader scope to excel in business sector.

You call this a business phone????

SA3DX says:

Well to be frank with you, a phone that does emails and makes calls, is without a doubt a good business phone. A plus is that it haves Office on it.

SA3DX says:

Actually the 620 is a good phone itself. AND it had flash and NFC.

Oh well I never looked at it that way

Aashish13 says:

Its definitely good device for business. Now all they have to do is marketing. Selling phones to companies in bulk in china.

OMG55 says:

Well we know Nokia made it and not Microsoft. Many people are being critical of Nokia in regards to low end devices while constantly saying that's the market they need to attack because Apple and Samsung have the high-end market on lock down.

LumiaWorld says:

It will definitely look beautiful. Let's just wait for the Lumia 730...

RAWAD_K says:

Can I pre order the Lumia 930?

Ravi Rathore says:

Wtf without WhatsApp no one is interested in seeing wp8/8.1

Revi Bennett says:

Sure.

Posted via the WPC App for Android!

SA3DX says:

Try telegram clients. They are much faster and more customizable than WhatsApp. Also completely free.

Ravi Rathore says:

Official telegram is also not there on WP

Ravi Rathore says:

Well m a developer n I don't like the restrictions that Microsoft offers sh*t man

Aashish13 says:

Fb Inc the worst programmers as usual

SA3DX says:

It doesn't mean you can't use a 3rd party client.

diego9016 says:

Which one exactly? I'll love a WPCentral article about WhatsApp alternatives, it would be very useful now.

SA3DX says:

Actually I've wrote a thread about them. And I've PMed Daniel Rubino about that. forums.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-apps/284658-whatsapp-alternative.html

Aashish13 says:

Here in India ppl have their imp contacts on watsapp. Its difficult to survive without wattsapp for a smartphone as of now. Really motherfucking and irritating fb Inc is

SammyD_L625 says:

No use trying anything else if nobody you know uses it.

SA3DX says:

Actually telegram is free. So it's not like they can't try it

SammyD_L625 says:

Most people don't like change.

SA3DX says:

Well that explains why people don't go to the Windows Phone platform :(

Ravi Rathore says:

See wp platform I the most younger in all its competitors n is competing as a master platform in from of them so its just a matter of time when it will cover its faults n became the class as was Nokia leads in past....(~.^)

SA3DX says:

Well you said its true that people don't like change. I mean if you can't even change an app, how are you gonna change the OS?!

Ravi Rathore says:

Well what will Microsoft do for mixradio n Xbox music???

Ravi Rathore says:

Do they combine n make it free???

adrian1338 says:

Do you maybe want your own private Comment section in WPcentral

Ravi Rathore says:

Yoo that will be nyc

DJCBS says:

Nothing. They are different services.

DJCBS says:

"this will mark the very first TD-LTE Windows Phone from Nokia (now Microsoft after the acquisition of Nokia's devices division)."

 

You mean from Microsoft Mobile. Learn the difference between Nokia and Microsoft Mobile, Rich. Once and for all. Here, meet Nokia, the true Nokia, the only company you can and should refer to as "Nokia": http://company.nokia.com/en

And start mentioning Microsoft's D&S division by its name: Microsoft Mobile.

 

Thanks ;)

BatteryLife says:

In the picture its written: Lumia 630 双卡双待 (Dual sim),probably stating that Lumia 630 is the double sim variant? Dk what is the Lumia 638 xP

 

sagar_23 says:

There is no official app for Facebook in WP from FB Inc. Now they pull out WhatsApp. Lets see what's the fate of Instagram Beta now on Windows platform.

DJCBS says:

Stop being melodramatic. If you read the article published yesterday, the pulling of WhatsApp is temporary. They have the app available for BlackBerry and Symbian for Christ sake! Stop worrying about WP "not returning".

 

Also, the Facebook app on WP is developed by Microsoft in partnership with Facebook Inc.

sagar_23 says:

Ya ya. I know, and I understand well. I guess without the update being ready, WhatsApp shouldn't be pulled out. Donno how long will it take. And taking about the facebook app, we all know how the app works.

sagar_23 says:

And it seems you are too happy to see WhatsApp on blackberry and Symbian platform and not on WP. :/

DJCBS says:

Where did you got that from? I said that they have it on those platforms. If they do on them, Windows Phone will not be left out for sure as it's a bigger platform.

sagar_23 says:

Yes, I know. But WP always lacked behind them from the beginning for WhatsApp.

MrLunga says:

How long will this 'temporary' be? It's been a number of days and trust me this is way too long. If a there was a bug on iOS or Android (like they say there is on WP) there would have never taken it off or it wouldn't have go on for this many days. It's sad what's happening to the WP platform this further hurts Microsoft's image and trust is also lost I mean how convenient that this happens when a super cheap phone is being released at an emerging market (Brazil) where the focus is so important. Someone is to blame and I believe Facebook is behind it, WhatsApp also never gave a shit before being bought by FB. I sometimes have fantasies of moving to and using other platforms (it really hurts).

sagar_23 says:

Exactly, I just hope this is not permanently pulled out, I know everywhere it is mentioned as temporary.

Wow... Shah dhhfxhj jgdcbnj gcbjjjd fxvnjjj dghjbcchk hkkbccdjmvc

iFokat says:

This phone is certainly going to sell in huge numbers in India as well.
