    Microsoft has launched a 4G-enabled Windows Phone 8.1 smartphone, Nokia Lumia 638, at a price of Rs 8,299. The 638 is the cheapest 4G-enabled smartphone available in the market at this time.

The budget smartphone sports a 4.5-inch 480x854p (FWVGA, 218ppi) ClearBack LCD display. The phone comes with polycarbonate design with changeable shells available in matte black and white colours.

Lumia 638 is powered by a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. It comes with 8GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

Lumia 638 runs Windows Phone 8.1, the latest iteration of the OS. The phone comes with onscreen soft keys for back, search and Home instead of hardware, capacitive keys. This feature has been introduced with Windows Phone 8.1.

The phone features a 5MP auto-focus rear camera but there's no LED flash. The Lumia 638 doesn't come with a front-facing camera.

In terms of connectivity, the phone supports 4G TD-LTE (support for Indian bands), Bluetooth 4.0, 3G, Wi-Fi, and A-GPS. The phone also includes 'SensorCore', low-power motion sensing for fitness apps. It is powered by an 1830mAh battery.

The company is also offering freebies with the phone. Microsoft will offer Lumia 638 consumers on Airtel post-paid in Bengaluru up to 5GB of free data on 4G for 2 months post activation of their sim. The offer will be available until 31 March 2015.
