Nokia Lumia 720T with TD-SCDMA connectivity launching in China soon
Lumia 520 is obviously not the only new Nokia Windows Phone 8 device that will be released in China soon. The Lumia 720 will arrive there, too, and we’ve discovered there is going to be a China Mobile-exclusive version of it, which features the carrier’s own TD-SCDMA technology.
Called Nokia Lumia 720T, China Mobile’s smartphone has been approved by Chinese authorities just recently, which means it probably won’t be long until it goes on sale. At the moment, there is no word on how much the smartphone will cost (it could be offered for next to nothing on select plans).
Save for the fact that it supports TD-SCDMA, the 720T isn’t different from the Lumia 720 that’s about to debut in other markets (including, of course, Europe). So it will come with a 4.3 inch IPS ClearBlack display (800 x 480 pixels), NFC, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 6.7MP rear camera (with Carl Zeiss optics, Led flash and 720p video recording), dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB).
Both the Lumia 720 and the cheaper Lumia 520 will help Nokia expand its Windows Phone market share around the world.
Later this year, Nokia should introduce several high-end WP8 devices, including the Lumia 928 (codenamed Laser).
