North America-bound Nokia Lumia 520 hits the FCC. Lumia 620 will get a waterproof case soon

Shortly after we’ve seen the Nokia Lumia 720 hitting the FCC, now the Federal Commission has also approved the cheaper Lumia 520.

The Lumia 520 that just showed up at the FCC has the model number RM-915.

It’s not the first time when a 520 hits the FCC: last month, the 520 RM-914 has been spotted at the Commission’s website. However, the RM-914 is a version made for Europe and Asia, while the RM-915 is bound to be launched in North and South America, as well as in Australia.

The Lumia 520 RM-915 obviously comes with 850 / 1900 MHz WCDMA connectivity, so it could be released by AT&T in the US. Of course, until now no leaks have suggested this will actually happen, and I’d rather bet on a Canadian launch.

The 520 is Nokia’s most affordable Lumia Windows Phone 8 device, featuring a 4 inch WVGA display, dual-core 1GHz processor, 5MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory (expandable thanks to a MicroSD card slot).

Before the introduction of Lumia 520, the Lumia 620 was Nokia’s cheapest WP8 device. And speaking of it, the 620 should get an IP54-certified waterproof case soon – at least that’s what Nokia Netherlands sales manager has tweeted yesterday. There is no word on how much the case will cost, and neither if it’s going to be widely available around the world. But we’ll let you know.
