It will reportedly be a low-end phone for about $325 USD
Nokia is on the verge of releasing
, but this time, it'll be a low-end model with the largest screen the company has unveiled yet.
Nokia will launch the Lumia 625 in the coming weeks, which is an effort to offer more affordable Windows Phones. The new phone will feature a 4.7-inch screen, which will make it one of the larger Lumia's to date.
The Lumia 625 will also have a a dual-core 1.2GHz S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera and a 800 x 480 (WVGA) resolution.
It's expected to launch at about $325 USD in a variety colors. However, a solid release date for the U.S. hasn't been announced yet.
It's important for Nokia to release less-expensive models of its Lumia line so that it can reach many different people with different price points.
A lot of the Lumia phones, such as the recently-announced
, are high-end devices that pack a ton of features for a steeper price. For instance, the 1020 -- which will have features like a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core, 2GB DRAM, LTE, NFC and a whopping second generation 41 MP, 1/1.5" sensor with 1.1 micron backside illuminated (BSI) pixels -- will run about $602 USD.

I wouldn't complain about the RAM so much as the 800x480 resolution on a nearly 5" screen. That's <200ppi which just isn't competitive even on budget phones that rock the same resolution on a smaller screen. Was it really that much more to make is 720p? The CPU has plenty of power to drive a higher resolution. I just don't know what the target market for this is going to be...the Galaxy Note II can be had for around $500 off contract and its easily 2x the phone.

In no way shape or form is the Galaxy Note II a competitor to the Lumia 625.
