After the leak we saw earlier today, Nokia has just announced the Lumia 625, a budget Windows Phone with the largest display the company has ever put in a smartphone. It has a 4.7-inch WVGA (480 x 800) panel with 201ppi, a 2000mAh battery, comes in red, yellow, black, white and green. Nokia has included one of its flagship features with the “super-sensitive touch” technology that allows you to use the touchscreen with gloves on.
The phone resembles the rest of Nokia’s Lumia family, though it really is a shame that the company had to sacrifice so much with the display in order to fit within its budget.
The phone will launch in Q3 across Europe, Africa, Latin America, and parts of Asia (including China and India), and we’ve been able to confirm a September release date for the UK. Nokia hasn’t confirmed its plans for a North American release yet.
