Nokia today announced the Lumia 625, a Windows Phone sporting a massive 4.7-inch display. But don't let size cloud your judgement. This isn't a high-end smartphone by any means. What we're looking at here is Nokia's continued attempts to reach out to multiple groups of consumers - today's announcement is for those who seek displays much like the Samsung ATIV S and HTC TITAN.
The design is pretty much spot on if we look at recently leaked renders, which is a positive since it's a really good looking device. Colours include white, black, yellow, green and red - the usual that we've come to expect from the manufacturer.
We're looking at 4G connectivity, 4.7" IPS LCD super-sensitive touch display (800x480), 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 2000mAh battery and will be a step up to the Lumia 620. Optics include a 5MP rear shooter and a standard VGA FFC. The shells are changeable, just like other Lumia Windows Phones and will be packing the Nokia Amber update with GDR2. Oh, did we mention that SmartCam will be included?
Priced at £200 (this is just guided), we'll be seeing the Lumia 625 arrive in the 4G push here in the UK (early September). Multiple mobile operators here in the UK will be picking up the new Windows Phone, though no word yet for the US.
