Looks like it’s getting difficult for Nokia to keep a secret when it comes to unveiling a new phone.
Hours after Nokia posted that it will announce something ‘Big’ on Tuesday, specifications and pictures of its new Lumia 625 Windows Phone 8 powered large screen phone leaked on a Finland-based website.
According to a specifications sheet posted by Puhelinvertailu.com, the Nokia Lumia 625 will sport a 4.7-inch, the biggest screen ever for a Nokia device. The phone will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor but sadly, it will come with just 512MB of RAM. Even the phone’s IPS LCD screen features a paltry 480×800 pixels resolution, which is a bit disappointing for a big screen phone.
The phone will sport a 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing shooter. It will offer 8GB of internal storage, expandable by another 64GB through a microSD card.
These specifications and the phone’s 600 series branding points to a lower mid-range positioning. However, the phone will also have a LTE (4G) variant. The phone will be powered by a 2000mAh battery and will also offer FM radio functionality. It will not feature NFC connectivity, though.
Variety in colour has been an essential element in the design of the Lumia series and even the Lumia 625 will sport a semi-transparent design and will come with changeable shells in five colours namely, Orange, Bright green, Yellow, White and Black. The Orange would likely be similar to the one we saw in Nokia Asha 501, as evident from Nokia’s teaser blog post on Monday.
Similar to other Nokia Lumia phones, Nokia will preload its own apps for navigation, imaging and music including the recently announced Smart Camera app.
The notorious @evleaks has also posted three press shots of the phone. It essentially looks like a bigger version of the Nokia Lumia 620, though the screen protrudes out a bit.
We’ll bring you all the updates from the launch announcement that’s scheduled to commence at 9:00 am London time/ 1:30 pm India time on Tuesday.
