The Nokia Lumia 620 was launched at the Le Web Internet conference in Paris, by Marko Ahtisaarri – EVP of Design at Nokia.
It has a 3.8-inch 800 x 480 display that is based on the clear black technology, for better outdoor viewing.
The handset runs from the latest Windows Phone 8 platform that is found running its flagship Lumia 920 and mid-range 820 devices.
Nokia’s 620 is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm S4 chipset, with 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage with support for 64GB microSD cards.
On-board is NFC, a front-facing VGA camera and a fast 5-megapixel variant, which has the software of its more costly counterparts.
These are said to be the sharp shoot ability and cinemagraph, for animating photos; along with the augmented reality Nokia City Lens app that helps in locating shops, restaurants and other local attractions.
The Nokia Lumia 620 will arrive in January 2013 and has been priced at €190 / £155 / $249, and will be available with the option of 7 different interchangeable shells.
These will be in the usual colours of cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white – along with orange and lime green.
