Nokia Lumia 720
The Nokia Lumia 720 is the new mid-range smartphone in the Windows Phone 8 range and brings with it a 4.3-inch display, 6.7-Megapixel camera and the best front-facing HD camera Nokia has ever launched.
It weighs in at 128g and measures a super-slim 127.9 x 67.5 x 9mm and comes with an amazing looking polycarbonate body that uses a new tooling technique, CNC machining, to deliver the best quality finish to the buttons and ports. The Nokia Lumia 720 is set to cost around 249 Euros when it launches.
Nokia Lumia 520
By contrast, the Nokia Lumia 520 is the new entry-level device in the Windows Phone 8 range, coming with a 4-inch display with super-sensitive layer. In many other respects it packs in the same core spec as the Nokia Lumia 620, with a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage and a 5-Megapixel camera.
However, with a 4-inch screen it’s aimed at those who want more real estate, either for easier web browsing, better navigation using Nokia Drive, or as a large viewfinder for an even better camera experience. The Nokia Lumia 520 is set to cost around 139 Euros when it launches.
The Nokia 301 measures in at 114 x 50 x 12.5 mm and weighs 120g and has a 2.4-inch display with 240 x 320-pixel resolution and 65k colour display. It will come in single SIM and Dual-SIM variants.
