Nokia has confirmed another Windows Phone 8 handset, this time at the middle of the spec sheet when it comes to features making the latest Windows OS more affordable. The Nokia Lumia 620 sports a fun design and a 3.8-inch ClearBlack LCD display.
There is a dual core processor and 512MB RAM on board as well as 8GB of memory which can be expanded with a microSD card. The connectivity package includes most of the essentials with HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS and NFC is also on board for easy pairing with other handsets or compatible accessories like portable speakers.
The optics package delivers a 5-megapixel camera and this handset is packing the same camera lens as its more powerful packed siblings the Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820. Whilst the resolution may not be as high you still get features such as Cinemagraph lens which puts simple animations over your photos and Smart Shoot that allows you to create the one perfect shot from multiple photos.
Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive is included with voice guided turn by turn directions and Nokia City Lens displays information about your surroundings overlaid onto the scene in front of you as you look at it on the phone screen.
This lower priced Lumia gives users access to all the many of the same features on the higher end Windows Phone handsets including adjustable Live Tiles, Xbox Live and Microsoft Office as well as Internet Explorer 10.
This phone is going toe to toe with the HTC Windows Phone 8S when it comes to specifications so it could be down to personal choice on brand that will decide which people go for.
This latest addition to the Lumia range puts a Windows phone at a lower price point than the Lumia 820 or 920 giving the Finnish manufacturer a better chance at attracting a range of users, we will have to see how the sales figures stack up when they come in.
