Nokia Lumia 720 headed to O2 UK
Nokia’s new Lumia 720 Windows Phone 8 handset should debut this month in some markets, but it won’t hit the shelves in the UK until April.
The first British network that (has just) confirmed it’s going to sell the 720 is O2 – which will offer the smartphone in black and red – the latter being an O2-exclusive color.
The Lumia 720 will be available at O2 UK next month, and it should be free on select plans. You can register fir further details here at O2′s website. SIM-free, the handset will cost around £299.99 (€350) in the UK, and it looks like it’s going to be available starting the very first day of April.
Announced in February, at the same time with the cheap Lumia 520, the Nokia Lumia 720 features a 4.3 inch WVGA ClearBlack display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, NFC, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 6.7MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Led flash, 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, 2,000 mAh battery, and 8GB of internal memory expandable with a MicroSD card (up to 64GB).
It’s not clear when, or if the Lumia 720 will be released in the US. But at least one of the conditions for this to happen (the handset’s FCC approval) has been met earlier this month.
