Nokia has revealed a new member of its Windows Phone 8-based Lumia lineup, the Lumia 620, which the Finnish company believes will give you "the most fun for your money".
The device features a 3.8-inch display, 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, NFC connectivity and a microSD card slot for expanding to 8 GB of internal storage.
As is the case with its fellow Lumia models -- the 820 and 920 -- the handset will integrate Nokia's proprietary lenses technology in its VGA front-facing camera, joined by a primary five-megapixel camera.
"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," Nokia Smart Devices' executive vice president, Jo Harlow, said.
The Lumia 620 will be available in seven colors: lime green and orange will join the cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white options that Nokia has implemented for other handsets.
Due for an early 2013 launch, the smartphone will retail for $249. It'll release in Asia, the Middle East and Africa during January, with other markets including Europe following soon after.
In other markets, less people go on contracts with phones or those contracts are simply unavailable, so they buy their phones outright. With the 620 being about half (or less) the cost of the 820, it makes a good proposition. (about $500 - $600 for an 820 and $700 - $800 for a 920 outside of the US, btw)
It'll probably come to the US once they've sold enough of the 820 and 920.
