Nokia Lumia 625 officially revealed: 4.7-inch, 4G

Mobile phones, Tech Digest news, Windows Phone 8

nokia-lumia-625.jpgNokia have just revealed their biggest phone to date, the 4.7-inch Nokia Lumia 625. A mid-range Windows Phone 8 handset, it sees Nokia following the trend for increasingly bigger handsets.

Though a sizeable 4.7-inches, it is however running at a fairly lowly resolutions of 480 x 800, which may make it not the sharpest handset out there. Processing chops seem solid though, with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 running the show here – keep in mind that Windows Phone 8 is less processor-intensive than, say, Android, so the lack of a quad-core isn’t that big a deal here.

Thinner than a Nokia Lumia 925 at just 9.15mm, both HSPA radios and LTE are supported, including EE’s Band 3 4G range.

“With our largest smartphone screen to date, the Nokia Lumia 625 is a perfect example of how Nokia is delivering leading smartphone innovation and experiences at every price point,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, Nokia Smart Devices.

Headed to EE, Vodafone, O2, Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse by early September, it’ll be priced at £200.
