Yesterday we posted some speculations about the red teaser on Nokia’s Facebook page, hoping to see their first phablet or tablet today. Well, turns out it was merely a mid to low range handset, but one that breaks Lumia’s current diagonal records.
The Nokia Lumia 625 is the newcomer, with Windows Phone 8 on board and a 4.7 inch 480 x 800 pixel display (IPS LCD), with Gorilla Glass 2 and curved edges. The display supports glove and fingernail touch input and the smartphone measures 9.3 mm in thickness, while weighing 159 grams. The phone packs a dual core Krait processor at 1.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
Specs also include HSPA+ connectivity, 4G LTE, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Glonass and the full suite of navigation software from Nokia. That includes HERE Drive beta with free offline GPS navigation for one country. This new Lumia also offers a 5 MP camera with Full HD video capture and a front facing VGA shooter. The phone launches in Q3 and it’s priced at 220 euros before taxes.
