Nokia Lumia 625
Nokia seems to be rushing to expand its Lumia line-up. Reports are popping up of a new smartphone in the making, dubbed the Lumia 625. According to GSMInsider, it is set to sport a 4.7-inch screen, thus making it one of the largest phones in the Windows Phone 8 line-up. It will run on a dual-core MSM8690 Snapdragon S4 processor by Qualcomm.
The resolution on the display will be 800 x 480 pixels, which is disappointing considering the rather large size of the screen. The low resolution is especially puzzling considering the fact that unlike Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8 does have support for higher resolutions, including WXGA resolution (1280 x 768).
The Lumia 625 will be one of the biggest Windows Phone devices yet
Information about Nokia’s other upcoming handsets – the Lumia 925 and 928 – have been revealed earlier. According to earlier reports, Lumia 925 will come with a slimmer, lighter aluminium body. Interestingly, the Lumia 928 and Lumia 925 are both said to have similar internals: a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.5-inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280 pixels, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
Both the Lumia 925 and 928 reportedly also have a camera with an 8.7-megapixel sensor and an f/2.0 aperture for good shots even in poorly lit conditions. Both the Lumia 928 and the Lumia 925 will be fuelled by a 2000 mAh non-removable battery.
We’ve also been hearing rumours about another Nokia phone called the Lumia EOS. This smartphone supposedly has a 41 megapixel camera, which makes it the Windows Phone version of the Nokia PureView 808. If this phone does exist, we expect it to have a better camera app and interface than the Symbian PureView 808, which left a lot to be desired. It’ll be interesting to see what Nokia comes up with if it indeed has a phone that combines Windows Phone 8 with a 41 megapixel camera.
