Microsoft has launched two new smartphones, the Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL, in India, priced at Rs 11,999 and Rs 15,799, respectively. While both the devices are available in LTE versions, these will not be available in India currently.
The Lumia 640 will be available on eCommerce portal, Flipkart, while the Lumia 640 XL will be available in physical retail stores.

Technology giant Microsoft on Tuesday said it will line up more 4G-compatible devices in India once the infrastructure for the high speed Internet service is ready in the country.
The company, which acquired Nokia's handset division last year for US $7.2 billion, has only one 4G-compatible device, Lumia 638 (priced at about Rs 6,800), in the Indian market.
"There are a number of 4G-compatible devices in our portfolio, we are ready with the handsets. Once infrastructure is ready (in India), we will bring more 4G devices in," Microsoft Mobile Devices Director Marketing Raghuvesh Sarup told PTI.
Many devices makers are now lining up 4G-compatible phones (especially in the sub-Rs 10,000 category) as operators like Reliance Jio gear up to launch the high-speed Internet service in the country.
Currently, Airtel and Aircel are the only two operators offering 4G services in certain parts of the country.
Lenovo's A6000 and A7000, Yu's Yureka and Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G are some of the devices that hit the Indian market in the sub Rs 10,000 segment recently.
