Lumia 635 Confirmed To Come With 1GB RAM In Select Markets

There are very few smartphones with 512Mega Bytes (MB) of Random-Access Memory (RAM) these days and most of them are members of the Lumia lineup. Windows Phone has always been a very light operating system, which allows Microsoft the luxury.

Microsoft has recently unveiled the affordable Lumia 435 and Lumia 532. Both phones feature low-discontinue specs, but they both come with 1GB of RAM. This leaves Lumia 530 and 630/635 the last of the 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) kind. Microsoft has recently confirmed all WP8 smartphones, including those with 512Mega Bytes (MB) Random-Access Memory (RAM) will acquire the Windows 10 update though.

It seems Microsoft has decided the Lumia 635 deserves a specs bump too. Just yesterday we spotted the Lumia 635 with 1GB on Telenor Hungary. And today Microsoft updated the official specs page and it now says "RAM: 512 Mega Bytes (MB) or 1 GB". Microsoft states that the Random-Access Memory (RAM) varies in selected markets, but it's still unclear which countries will acquire the better model.

Note than the Lumia 635 with 1GB Random-Access Memory (RAM) has lesser battery life than the one with 512Mega Bytes (MB) - the standby time has decreased from 25 days down to 19 days.

It's odd Microsoft updating the Lumia 635 eight months after its release, but Windows 10 might be the reason for the change of heart. Microsoft assumed it is working on a special version of the Windows 10 update, which will be able to run on devices with 512Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM. Apparently the company needs to disable some features and do further tweaking on each Lumia with less Random-Access Memory (RAM) and we guess it may want to spare some work in the future by bumping the Random-Access Memory (RAM) on some phones.

Nokia Lumia 635 is the LTE-enabled flavor of the Lumia 630 and it comes with 4.5" FWVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display and a quad-core processor. It srecent very well during the holiday season thanks to all those remarkable promo deals Microsoft has launched over various carriers and retailers. We've recently previewed the Windows 10 for Phones on a Lumia 630 and you may want to check it out correct here.
