Nokia Lumia 625 is official: a 4.7-inch, LTE enabled device for €220
Nokia today unveiled the Nokia Lumia 625 – a new budget-friendly Windows Phone with a big 4.7-inch display. The new device is the Nokia’s logical step forward in an attempt to attract a different type of customers. The new model arrives in 5 brightly colored semi-transparent changeable polycarbonate shells: in yellow, orange, green, white and black.
Nokia Lumia 625 is an LTE/4G enabled device with a 4.7-inch screen having a wide viewing angle. The display is viewable in direct sunlight and has the super-sensitive touch technology, which means you can use gloves or nails. Unfortunately, the display has a low resolution – just 800x480p but you can expect that in a low/mid-range device. It is obvious that Nokia had to sacrifice the display characteristics to fit within the budget. The other specs include a 5 MP camera, 8 GB of memory, 512 MB RAM, a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor and a 2000 mAh battery.
The Nokia Lumia 625 arrives with some nice features, apps and the latest Lumia Amber update. It has the Nokia Smart Camera and Cinemagraph pre-loaded. The handset is also enriched with the new Coloud Boom headphones and the latest versions of the Nokia apps – HERE Maps, HERE Drive, HERE Transit and Nokia Music.
