Nokia Lumia 625 with Windows Phone 8 Amber now official, costs €220, will be available this quarter

Nokia has officially introduced its largest Windows Phone handset to date: the Lumia 625 (yes, we knew this was coming).

Running Windows Phone 8 Amber, the Lumia 625 sports a 4.7 inch WVGA IPS display with Sunlight Readability Enhancement, weighs 159 grams, and measures 133.25 x 72.25 x 9.15 mm. It comes with LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, A-GPS with Glonass, Bluetooth 4.0, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor (1.2GHz), 521MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 64GB). There’s a 5MP camera with LED flash on the back, while the front-facing camera is a VGA one.

The new Lumia also offers some software features that have been introduced on the Lumia 1020 flagship – like Nokia Smart Camera.

There will be several changeable shells available for the Lumia 625, in orange, yellow, bright green, black and white. As noted here at Nokia Conversations, “the interchangeable shells are constructed of a single piece of translucent polycarbonate, layered with an inner color designed to amplify and bring to life your final color choice.”
