Nokia Lumia 620 gets certified in China ahead of launch
Earlier this month, Nokia introduced the new Lumia 620 as its cheapest Windows Phone 8 handset, and as one of the cheapest WP devices ever (regardless of manufacturer).
Now the Lumia 620 has been certified by the Chinese authorities, meaning it can be launched in the world’s largest mobile market. The 620 that received certification is a WCDMA model, so it will work on China Unicom’s 3G network, but not on China Mobile’s TS-SCDMA one.
Of course, the new smartphone will only be released in January – not just in China, but also in other Asian countries. After that, Nokia will launch it in Europe and The Middle East, too.
The Lumia 620 sports a 3.8 inch ClearBlack display with 800 x 480 pixels, and features: Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, Nokia Maps, VGA front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, 512MB of RAM, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,300 mAh battery. The handset will be available in seven color versions (market dependable): white, black, green, orange, magenta, cyan, lime, and yellow.
Unlocked, the Nokia Lumia 620 will cost around $250.
Nokia has already launched a WP8 handset in China: the high-end Lumia 920T, which is exclusively offered by China Mobile.
