Nokia today launched two new Windows Phone 8 devices: the Lumia 720 and the Lumia 520 smartphones. The Lumia 720 delivers high-end camera performance at a mid-range price point and the Lumia 520 becomes Nokia's most affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone with features usually found in high-end devices.
The Nokia Lumia 720
A large f/1.9 aperture and exclusive Carl Zeiss optics are designed to deliver bright, clear pictures day and night, while the HD-quality, wide-angle front-facing camera makes taking pictures with friends and video calling more enjoyable. The sleek and stylish smartphone comes with the latest high-end Nokia Lumia experiences, including Nokia Music, the HERE location suite, and the option to add wireless charging with a snap-on wireless charging cover.
The Nokia Lumia 720 comes in five colors, with an estimated starting price of EUR 249 before taxes and subsidies. Rollout is planned to start in Hong Kong, Vietnam and Singapore in Q1 2013, before continuing into broader markets in Q2, including China as well as key markets in Europe, Asia, Africa and India.
