Nokia Announces Lumia 625 in the UK

By - Source: Nokia | B 7 comments

The Lumia 625 is Nokia's something big.

Nokia on Monday announced plans for a Tuesday morning announcement at 9am GMT. The company promised us something big (actually, 'big' was in all caps) and many assumed we'd finally clap eyes on the Lumia 625 in an official capacity. The rumors came to fruition, as Nokia did indeed unveil the Lumia 625.

 

The company is calling the Lumia 625 'hero of the big screen' presumable because the phone packs a large display. What's more, Nokia claims the panel is viewable in direct sunlight and is super-sensitive, allowing for operation with gloves hands or even nails. The display itself measures 4.7 inches in size and is a WVGA panel with 201 ppi. Display aside, the phone runs on a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage (up to 64 GB via SD card), a 5-megapixel camera, and support for USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, and WLAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n.

The specs line up perfectly with what we heard ahead of the phone's unveiling. Nokia says the Lumia 625 will be available in orange, yellow, bright green, white and black and will ship in the third quarter with a €220 price tag before any local taxes or operator subsidies.

    I LOVE my Lumia 822 on VZW, but Nokia just keeps releasing the same thing, essentially, over and over with a slightly different camera. Kind of boring. Also, Verizon needs to fix the friggin' group messaging on their Windows Phones, ASAP.

    I agree on the group messaging thing. My HTC Trophy (earlier Windows Phone) had group messaging on Verizon, and newer Windows Phones have group messaging on other carriers. Clearly, this is on Verizon.

    As for Nokia, what are you looking for them to do? Different hardware designs or different features or what? The Lumia 925 is a bit of a different design than their polycarbonate ones.

    I would like to see them go to the Trophy design. I still use mine on occasion because I have smaller hands (I also cannot eat Whopper Jr's without assistance) and smaller phones just FEEL better. I frankly have no use for a giant screen, I prefer something compact and SOLID feeling. It would be a nice way to differentiate themselves. I get sick of giant phones, big, bigger, biggest... Seriously, unless you want a phablet, what is the draw to an awkwardly large phone? I am sure I could find an Android with a smaller screen, but yuck. I will never deal with their lackluster performance and stability issues again, and Apple is another no-go for me.

    Sorry Nokia, it's already 2013.
    And 4.7 inches is not anymore considered 'big'.
    If Nokia is really serious about the phablet market, she should start with 7 inches.

    512 mb of ram? Very disappointing.
