ESPOO, Finland – Nokia has introduced the Nokia Lumia 620, a Windows Phone 8 device and released the Nokia 114 with dual-SIM functionality.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is said to be the third-most affordable Windows Phone 8 handset released by the company. The phone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GHz dual-core CPUs under a 3.8-inch Wide-VGA display.
It is equipped with two cameras, a 5MP rear-camera with LED flash and a VGA front-camera, that uses the same Nokia-exclusive camera “lens” as in the Nokia Lumia 920, such as Cinemagraph and Smart Shoot. For the memory, the phone has 512MB of RAM and 8GB internal storage space, in addition to a microSD slot for memory expansion to up to 64GB and 7GB free Microsoft SkyDrive storage.
The Lumia 620 takes advantage of HERE platform, Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia City Lens. Since the phone is targeted towards young people, it also features Nokia Music, NFC pairing, Xbox Live and a Me Tile that allows users to post and track updates from different social networks.
To get along with the young audience, the phone comes in variety of colors, including lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, white and black with exchangeable shells. These colors have been created using a “dual-shot” technique, involving a mixture of two colors to produce depth effects and secondary color blends.
The Nokia Lumia 620 will be released in Q1 2013 for a price of about USD 249, excluding taxes and subsidies.
The Finnish company has also released a new entry-level feature phone, the Nokia 114. It has a 65K color screen with 128 x 160 resolution. Other specs include VGA camera, Bluetooth 2.1, 1080mAh battery, and of course, the dual-SIM functionality.
