Nokia bares entry-level Windows 8-based Lumia 620

By MST News | Jan. 09, 2013 at 06:00pm
Seeking to hasten its turnaround, phonemaker Nokia recently announced the Nokia Lumia 620, the third and most affordable in its range of Windows Phone 8 smartphones.

Lumia 620 joins Nokia’s flagship unit, the Lumia 920, and mid-range Lumia 820 that run on the Windows 8 platform.

Estimated at $249 (about P10,000) excluding taxes and subsidies, the Nokia Lumia 620 will begin selling in January 2013 in Asia, followed closely by Europe and the Middle East before expanding further.

The Nokia Lumia 620 uses a new dual-shot color technique to deliver a variety of striking color and texture effects. Dual-shot adds a second layer of colored, transparent, or translucent polycarbonate on top of a base layer to produce secondary color blends and depth effects.

“We continue to execute on our strategy to reach new audiences and new markets,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president at Nokia smart devices.

Among the features shared with the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 are exclusive camera lenses that transform the creative power of the Nokia Lumia 620’s five megapixel main camera and VGA front-facing camera.

The Cinemagraph lens adds simple animations to still photographs, while Smart Shoot creates a single, perfect shot from multiple images, even removing unwanted objects from the picture.

The Nokia Lumia 620 also provides access to the world’s best maps and location experience, including Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Transport and the exclusive Nokia City Lens.

Nokia City Lens displays information about local surroundings overlaid onto buildings as seen through the camera viewfinder.

Nokia Music meanwhile provides free streaming of ad-free tracks without registration or subscription and the ability to download playlists for listening offline.

With NFC support, the Nokia Lumia 620 can pair with NFC-enabled accessories like the JBL PlayUp Portable Speaker for Nokia. Open and secure NFC-connectivity makes it possible to share and receive content by tapping with compatible devices, or make secure payments using the Wallet application in Windows Phone 8.

Adjustable Live Tiles update direct to the Start Screen. People Hub pulls together contact information from multiple address books and social networks into a single location, making it easy to stay in touch with friends and set up contact Groups and private Rooms for sharing.

From the Me Tile people can check in to their location, post an update, set chat status, see what’s new and monitor notifications across Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Windows Phone 8 also includes Xbox Live, Microsoft Office, 7GB of online SkyDrive storage and faster surfing with Internet Explorer 10.

These features and capabilities are enabled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Plus processors.

“People can do more of the things they love when they choose a mobile device that has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor,” said Enrico Salvatori, senior vice president and president of Qualcomm Europe.

“The Snapdragon S4 Plus processor is the heart of the Nokia Lumia 620, making it possible to multi-task, stream in HD and share content at super-fast speeds.”

The Nokia Lumia 620 will be available in a range of colors including, lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white and black.
