Microsoft's news centre has published a blank article announcing the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, two new Windows Phone devices.

The company is holding a press event tomorrow morning at the Mobile World Congress to announce new Lumia devices, but it appears that this blank article has been accidently published revealing the names of the two new devices.

Rumours suggest that the devices will be low-end and that the Lumia 640 XL will be a bigger version of the Lumia 640. 

According to tech site, The Verge, leaked specifications suggest that the Lumia 640 will be a 5-inch device with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 processor.

The same leak also claims that Microsoft is placing an 8MP camera at the rear of the device and a 1MP camera at the front.
