Nokia has just announced the Lumia 625, a budget Windows Phone with the largest display the company has ever put in a smartphone. It's a 4.7-inch WVGA (480 x 800) panel with 201ppi, however, which makes it one of the least dense displays.
The rest of the specifications are in line with what was leaked earlier, including a 1.2GHz dual-core processor alongside 512MB RAM and 8GB internal storage, that can be expanded by another 64GB via microSD card. It comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing shooter. The 4.7-inch screen sports a disappointing 480x800 pixel resolution.
Nokia Lumia 625 runs on Windows Phone 8 with Nokia Amber update and is powered by a 2,000mAh battery.The Nokia Lumia 625 also provides some software features found in the recently announced flagship Nokia Lumia 1020. These include a range of integrated camera applications like Nokia Smart Camera, offering handy features like removing unwanted objects from pictures, and Nokia Cinemagraph, which turns photos into living memories with added movement.
"With our largest smartphone screen to date, the Nokia Lumia 625 is a perfect example of how Nokia is delivering leading smartphone innovation and experiences at every price point," said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, Nokia Smart Devices.
The Nokia Lumia 625 will be available in a range of colours including orange, yellow, bright green, white and black with an array of changeable shells. With an estimated retail price of 220 Euros before taxes and subsidies, the Nokia Lumia 625 is planned to begin selling in China, Europe, Asia Pacific, India, Middle East, Africa and Latin America in Q3 2013.
