Nokia intros IP54-certified protective case for Lumia 620

As hinted last week, the Nokia Lumia 620 is indeed getting a new protective case that’s IP54-certified.

Nokia has officially unveiled the new case yesterday, calling it CC-3061, and saying it’s going to be available later this month, for prices around €25. Since it’s just IP54-certified, the case is not truly waterproof – however, “water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect.” Still better than having an unprotected device, right?

The new CC-3061 won’t make the Lumia 620 larger, as it’s attached to the device by replacing its existing back cover.

Of course, it would be nice if Nokia could launch a high-end smartphone that’s waterproof by default – like Sony’s Xperia Z. Maybe it will happen at some point. We’ll let you know.

Back to the Lumia 620 – this was launched in January as Nokia’s cheapest Windows Phone 8 device. Since then, the Lumia 520 took its place, as it costs only around $180. Still, the 620 remains an affordable smartphone that offers a lot for its low price, including: HSPA, NFC, a 3.8 inch WVGA display, Nokia City Lens, Cinemagraph,  5MP rear camera with LED flash and Smart Shot, dual-core 1GHz processor, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 32GB).
