“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?

    Pretty nice phone for the price, but I still want the 1020. My GS3 needs to be replaced and I’m done with android.

  • Ralphage

    I’ll probably get one just because of the green. Nokia really should make more green phones.

  • Yazzie

    Nah, ill wait for the phablet

    • Ralphage

      Well this is a low budget phone, not a high end as stated in the article :)

      • Yazzie

        I know, just saying the 4.7 inch screen is nice, but I’d rather have it in a high end phablet.

    So it’s basically a 620 with a bigger screen?

      Not exactly hearditall. The 625 is actually a decent step up from the 620. In addition to the bigger screen, the 625 also has 4G LTE connectivity, while the 620 would only connect to WCDMA and GSM (3G and 2G, respectively) networks :) The battery is also more powerful, among other differences. http://www.trutower.com/tag/lumia-620/
