Nokia has just announced the Lumia 620, supposedly its cheapest Windows Phone to date, but the Finnish company isn’t planning on stopping there. In fact, it looks like it has an even cheaper Windows Phone in the works – the Lumia 505.
This device will at some point be offered in Mexico by Telcel, and it will be exclusive in that country to that carrier. The information has surfaced via a Facebook post by Guerrero Movil, a Telcel authorized reseller.
The only spec that’s been mentioned by the retail company is an 8 MP camera, which is certainly surprising for a low-end phone.
Other rumored specs for the Nokia Lumia 505 include a 4-inch 480×800 touchscreen, an 800 MHz single-core processor, 256 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage space. So low-end through and through, except the camera. Perhaps something to solidify Nokia’s lead in the imaging department in the smartphone world.
Because of the specs, and judging from the leaked image (which you can see above) that shows the new, WP8-esque home screen, we can safely assume that the Lumia 505 will run Windows Phone 7.8. That’s the version that will be reserved for low-end handsets from now on, those that can’t match Windows Phone 8′s hardware requirements.
Guerrero Movil promises new information will arrive next week, so stay tuned for that.
