After much delay, the affordable entry-level Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8 powered smartphone is officialy available in South Africa.
The LTE ready Lumia 620 which was initially scheduled to launch in December 2012 comes with exchangeable shells that use a dual-shot colour technique to deliver new colour combinations.
Colin Baumgart, General Manager, Nokia South Africa said: “The 620 adds more youthful appeal to the range and enables us to reach new audiences and markets with a highly desirable product at a competitive price.”
While the handset might be cheaper, it boasts with great applications found on the greater 920 and 820 models. The 620 is powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GHz dual-core CPUs and a rather tedious 512MB of RAM. It comes standard with 8GB of storage and expandable Micro SD support up to 64GB while users also get 7GB free Microsoft Skydrive storage.
The Lumia 620 sports a 5-megapixel rear-facing and VGA front-facing camera. The Nokia Lumia 620 also features the full suite of Nokia navigation applications, including the exclusive Nokia City Lens, as well as Nokia Music for unlimited music streaming.
The handset is available on an MTN Anytime 100 contract at R229 per month, with 150MB data included for 24 months and comes with a wide variety of interchangeable back colours available including cyan, lime, orange, magenta and yellow.
“It is great to be extending the Lumia family in South Africa with the addition of our third and most affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone,” concluded Baumgart
