“Something big” was said to be coming from Nokia yesterday, and the company certainly delivered on that promise this morning by officially unveiling the budget-friendly Lumia 625, which packs the largest screen on a Nokia Windows Phone to date.
The LCD screen measures a good 4.7 inches, but despite the large size, it’s actually meant as a budget phone for the wallet conscious consumer rather than the higher end users. It’s the perfect phone for use with VoIP, push-to-talk, and messaging applications as well as global GSM SIM cards while traveling.
The Lumia 625 is 4G LTE capablewith a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 512 MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage expandable to 64GB with an SD card, and a 2,000mAh battery to keep you talking for hours. There’s also a 5 megapixel camera on board with 1080p recording as well as a front facing VGA camera for selfies. Of course, the whole device is powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS. The phone is a nice step above the Nokia Lumia 620.
The new Lumia also comes with five colorful swappable shells, available in yellow, green, orange, white, and black. Nokia said the smartphone would go on sale in China, India, and other countries outside the U.S. in the next few months for an estimated price tag of 220 euros.
Of course, users can also look forward to all of the Nokia exclusive apps such as Smart Camera, HERE maps, and others. Check out the teaser video below. Will you be picking one of these up?
