Nokia Lumia 625 could be announced tomorrow. Lumia 520 confirmed by AT&T
Now, Finish website Puhelinvertailu has new photos of this Windows Phone 8 handset, as well as a list of specs.
As rumored last week, the 625 does indeed have a 4.7 inch WVGA display. It will also come with LTE connectivity, “unique semi-transparent design with changeable shells in 5 exciting colors”, 5MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
Meanwhile, Nokia has officially unveiled – over at its Conversations blog – that it’s going to announce something “big” tomorrow, July 23, in London. Since the 4.7 inch screen of the Lumia 625 makes this the company’s largest WP8 handset to date (133.2 x 72.2 mm), it makes sense for us to expect it at the London event. Or maybe Nokia will announce a tablet? I doubt that, but let’s wait and see.
In related news, today AT&T has confirmed that it would carry the cheap Nokia Lumia 520 starting later this week (July 26). The 520 will be the carrier’s first Windows Phone device sold to its prepay (GoPhone) customers. It’s going to cost $99.99 (no contract required), offering a 4 inch WVGA display, 5MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, 1GHz dual-core processor, and a 1,430 mAh battery. AT&T says this is a “4G-capable” device, but don’t get fooled: it does not support LTE.
A slightly different version of the Lumia 520, namely the Lumia 521, is already offered in the US by T-Mobile. And it looks like it’s going to be sold by MetroPCS at some point, too.
Later this month, AT&T will also have the new Nokia Lumia 1020 in stock. This will cost $299.99 on contract, being the first Windows Phone handset to feature a 41MP PureView camera.
