Nokia Takes the Wraps Off Of “Youthful” Lumia 620

by Reads (3,034)

Nokia Lumia 620Nokia is now offering a third, even more affordable option for those interested in the new Windows Phone 8 OS, announcing the new Lumia 620 earlier today.

The phone attempts to take a more “fun, youthful” approach in a compact design, with a casing that can be swapped out for others in a variety of colors, including lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white, and black. Through what Nokia describes as a “dual-shot color technique,” the colors of the exchangeable shells, which are available in matte and gloss finishes, can be combined to produce secondary color blends (notice how the yellow handset pictured here has a green trim around its edges).

Substantially smaller than its big brothers, the Lumia 920 and 820, the Lumia 620 has a 3.8-inch, 800 x 480 ClearBlack display, as well as a more modest 1 GHz, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor.

Its other specs are lower-end as well, like its 512MB of RAM, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing camera, and 8GB of onboard storage, though it is expandable via micro SD.

Nokia has the Lumia 620 pegged at an estimated $249 before taxes and subsidies, with the smartphone coming to Asia in January 2013. No news yet on carrier availability or a release timeframe for North America, with Nokia merely stating that it would “expand further” after the Europe and Middle East releases, which will follow shortly after Asia.
