New Nokia Lumia 625 with Windows Phone 8 shows up in photos
Nokia is getting ready to unveil a new and quite large Windows Phone 8 device. It’s called Lumia 625 (we heard about it back in May).
It turns out that the Lumia 625 is indeed the bigger brother of the 3.8 inch Lumia 620 that was launched in January. It’s been certified by Chinese authorities just recently, and thankfully some photos of it have been made available.
The new Lumia sports a 4.7 inch display, the largest ever found on a Nokia WP8 device. For the record, the company’s current flagships – including the new Lumia 1020 – all have 4.5 inch displays.
However, the 625 is not a high-end smartphone. The screen resolution is WVGA, while other features include: dual-core 1GHz processor (of unknown provenience), LTE connectivity, 5MP rear camera with Flash, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
The Lumia 625 could be released in China before the end of this month. It should cost 1,999 CNY there – meaning about $326, or €248.
LiveSide reports that the 625 – or a slightly different version of it – may have passed the FCC last month as the Nokia RM-941.
Nokia will probably announce the Lumia 625 in the near future. I’m guessing the handset won’t be launched only in China, but in many other markets around the world.
