on what its "lower end"

handsets might be. But it's finally given a face to the low end with the
of the Lumia 620, the successor to
last generation's Lumia 610
The phone will first land in Asia in January (likely looking to capitalize on the lucrative Chinese market). Priced at approximately $249 USD, the phone will then jump to Europe and the Middle East. When and if the phone does land in the U.S., it would likely only interest the most budget-minded of customers, given that the flagship Lumia 920 is
offered for $99 USD
and the mid-range Lumia 820 is offered for $49 USD. The Lumia 620 will likely be offered for free with contract.
The phone packs a 3.8-inch 800x480 pixel screen (up slightly from last generation) and a 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor from Qualcomm, Inc. (
). While the RAM is doubled to 512 MB, the relatively small allotment may prove a little slow when using certain apps. Storage is provided by 8 GB of internal NAND and a microSD expansion slot. An additional 7 GB of space is offered on Microsoft Corp.'s (
) SkyDrive service.
Following Nokia's scheme of colorful packaging, the phone will be made available in lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white and black body colors.
Typical perks like NFC and wireless charging are onboard. Nokia also will ship the devices with its
and Nokia City Lens (an augmented reality mapping service for urban areas, which points out local landmarks).
Nokia also brags about its SmartShot lens upgrade, which allows for panoramic shots (sort of like Apple, Inc.'s (
) and Cinemagraph, an image post-processing tool that allows you to animate still photographs. The low-end phone carries a 5 megapixel camera lens, with LED flash, plus a front-facing VGA camera for video chats.
