Troubled former rubber-boot maker Nokia has had details of a new phone, tipped to be the biggest on the market, leaked – and it’s going to be cheap as chips.
The Lumia 625 specifications have been leaked by Finnish website puhelinvertailu.com.
It’s rumoured to have a 4.7-inch LCD display with 800x480p resolution and pixel density of 201ppi. Layered with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 for resistance against scratches, this screen will feature the super sensitive touch technology that has been seen in other Lumia phones. It will run on Windows Phone 8 and have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the bonnet and 512MB RAM
The Lumia 625 is expected to have a 5MP camera with LED flash on the back, but no front unit.
There will be 8GB internal storage and microSD support of up to 64GB. Connectivity options include 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. It will be powered by 2,000mAh battery and weigh 159gram. Going by the leaked images of the handset, it will come in green, yellow, white, black and red.
While the official price of the phone has not been leaked there are rumours that Nokia is going to have a crack at making it fairly cheap. The company has to do something to restore confidence in its range.
This will be the fourth smartphone released in as many months, after the Lumia 925, Lumia 928 and Lumia 1020.
Other handsets launched by the company during this period include feature phones like the 208, 207, Asha 501 and Asha 210.
