Nokia has revealed a new budget Windows Phone 8 smartphone, the Lumia 620.
This model falls underneath the Lumia 820, which is the mid-range, cut down version of the flagship Lumia 920. The Lumia 620 is being pitched at the $250 mark (with a UK price yet to be confirmed, but it should be under £200).
The phone is labelled as “compact and fun” by Nokia, with a “dual shot” polycarbonate body that has a base layer and second colour to produce some funky looking colour schemes – plus exchangeable shells will let you customise the look of your handset further.
More importantly, the tech specs as follows: A 3.8 inch Clear Black display with an 800 x 480 resolution, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage (plus a microSD slot), along with a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash (capable of 720p video).
The Lumia 620 will be powered by a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU, and it will also have NFC on board. All in all, it’s a pretty capable spec considering the asking price.
All the Windows Phone and Nokia stuff you’d expect is here, as well, with exclusive camera lenses (software photo effects), 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage, Nokia Music, and Nokia Maps and Drive for navigation.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is expected to be on shelves come the first quarter of next year.
