It is high time that Windows Phone smartphones ramp up the screen sizes as other devices, especially Android smartphones have reached the screen size mark of 6.3 inches already. And to compete with the likes, Finnish giant Nokia has today officially announced the launch of the Nokia Lumia 625, which is not as large as the Samsung Galaxy mega 6.3 but carries a 4.7 inch display for the least and is now the first (almost) phablet from the company.


The Nokia Lumia 625 packs a 4.7 inch display with a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, thus giving a decent pixel density of 201 PPI. It arrives with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection and is Super Sensitive so that users will be able to operate it even while wearing gloves. The device is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor which is complimented with 512 MB of RAM and carries internal storage of 8 GB which is expandable using a microSD card slot up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 625 runs on the Windows Phone 8 OS and will arrive with the ‘Amber’ update out-of-the box. The smartphone has a decent 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED Flash and a front facing VGA camera. The Nokia Lumia 625 will also be one of the most affordable smartphones to arrive with 4G LTE connectivity (region dependent) for faster internet access apart from the usual 2G, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and GLONASS. The Nokia Lumia 625 gets all the juice from a powerful 2000 mAh battery which will keep it running for a nice amount of time.


The Nokia Lumia 625 is all set to launch in Orange, Yellow, Bright Green, White and Black colour options with wireless charging shells will be available separately. The device will retail for € 220 before taxes and subsidies and would go on sale in Q3 2013 in countries like India, Middle East, Africa China, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
