Nokia Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 launching at Mobile World Congress

Finnish mobile phone manufacturer Nokia has had four new handsets appear in a mobile phone network logs, possibly indicating that these devices are to be unveiled at MWC, next week.

This information has been published over Twitter, by a company that runs adverts inside Windows Phone applications.

Alan Mendelevich (head of Adduplex) has tweeted: “I see Nokia RM-914 (Lumia 520), RM-885 (Lumia 720), RM-887(?) and RM-860(?) on Verizon in our logs. 3-4 new phones at #MWC13?

We first reported on the Lumia 520 and 720 last week, as they appeared in an Indonesia telecoms authority listing.

The 520 is thought to be the successor to the entry level Lumia 510, which sits below the 610.

Nokia’s Lumia 520 is believed to have a 4-inch screen, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Lumia 720 is said to be replacing the 710, which was announced at the same time as the Lumia 800 – Nokia’s first Windows Phone device.

That is noted to have a 4.3-inch CleakBlack display, with the same CPU and RAM as the 520, 8GB of internal storage – only with a 6-megapixel camera and a front-facing 2-MP version.

Those other two are presumably Windows Phone 8 devices, judging by the company’s involvement with that OS.

Stay tuned to our site, as we are attending Mobile World Congress next week (starting on the 25th of Feb) and will cover what Nokia announces on that very morning.
