Nokia today has unveiled the Nokia Lumia 620, the third and most affordable in its range of Windows Phone 8 smartphone. Like Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, the Lumia 620 also offers a more fun, youthful appeal and compact design.
According to Nokia, the Lumia 620 uses a new dual-shot color technique to deliver a variety of striking color and texture effects.
The phone features a new dual-shot style, allowing users to add a second layer of colored, transparent or translucent poly-carbonate on the base phone cover.
“We continue to execute on our strategy to reach new audiences and new markets,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, Nokia Smart Devices.
“With its innovative design, the latest Windows Phone 8 software and signature experiences from Nokia, like Nokia Lenses, Nokia Maps and Nokia Music, the Nokia Lumia 620 is a highly competitive smartphone at this price point.”
Talking about hardware, the Lumia 620 features 3.8-inch ClearBlack WVGA display, 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 5Mp camera.
Nokia claims up to 14.6hrs GSM talktime (up to 9.9hrs WCDMA) or up to 330hrs standby from the 1,300 mAh battery, and the whole thing measures in at 115.4 x 61.1 x 11.02 mm and 127g. No sign of wireless charging, however. The Nokia Lumia 620 will go on sale in Q1 2013 for $249.
