Nokia Lumia 720 And Lumia 520 Launched In India, Arriving Mid And Early April Respectively

Nokia India today launched the Lumia 720 and the Lumia 520 in India, completing its Windows Phone portfolio in one of its most important markets.

The Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 run Windows Phone 8, and were announced earlier this year at the Mobile World Congress.

Nokia Lumia 720 launched in India

The Lumia 720 comes with a 4.3″ WVGA resolution display, a dual core 1 GHz processor and a 6.7 MP camera with a f/1.9 aperture. Nokia has promised very good imaging experiences in the mid-range, and although there was no price announced, I would wager it would be around the Rs. 20,000 mark, give or take Rs. 1000.

  • Windows Phone 8
  • 4.3″ IPS LCD display with ClearBlack technology, super sensitive, WVGA resolution (800×480)
  • 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor (MSM8227 and Adreno 305)
  • 6.7 MP main camera, LED flash, 720p aka HD recording at 30 FPS; front facing wide-angle 1.3 MP camera
  • 512 MB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, expandable with a microSD card up to 64 GB
  • NFC, Bluetooth, Wireless charging, Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • 2000 mAh battery

The Lumia 520, on the other hand, aims to further strengthen Nokia’s portfolio in the entry-level. The Asha series of devices have worked wonders in the feature-phone category, and with the Lumia 520, the Finns are aiming to recapture some of the entry-level smarphone range marketshare.

  • Windows Phone 8
  • 4.0″ LCD display, super sensitive, WVGA resolution (800×480)
  • 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor  (MSM8227 and Adreno 305)
  • 5 MP main camera, 720p aka HD recording at 30 FPS
  • 512 MB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, expandable with a microSD card up to 64 GB
  • Bluetooth, Wi-Fi b/g/n
  • 1430 mAh battery

The Lumia 520 should be available in the market in early April, and the Lumia 720 in mid-April. Price, I expect the Lumia 520 to be around Rs. 10-12,000, and the Lumia 720 in the Rs. 20,000 range.

Update: We have the official price of the Nokia Lumia 520 – Rs. 10,500. That’s the MRP; market price should be under Rs. 10,000. Very competitive.
