Nokia Lumia 625 with 4.7-inch display shows up in China
Nokia seems to be working on a 4.7-inch Lumia 625, which has been spotted at the Chinese communication regulatory commission (TENAA).
It's only been a few days since Nokia revealed its top-end Lumia 1020 smartphone, which is exclusive to AT&T in the U.S. Rumors suggest that the Finnish company already has another Windows Phone 8 (WP8) powered handset in the pipeline, which will be placed a mid-range smartphone offering.
The handset will succeed the Lumia 620, and if rumors are to be believed, the Lumia 625 will be the biggest WP8 smartphones around.
Rumors suggest that the Lumia 625 is expected to hit the shelves in China at the end of this month and will be available for around 2,000 Yuan outright (about $325).
According to an Engadget report, the Nokia Lumia 625 spotted in China strongly resembles another Nokia device that passed through the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) recently with a codename RM-941. So a strong likelihood exists that Nokia will launch the handset in the U.S. also.
The Lumia 625 is a slight improvement over the Lumia 620. The upcoming handset is said to feature a better 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. The smartphone is also expected to packs a bigger 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery that should offer more standby and talk time than Lumia 620's 1,300 mAh Li-Ion battery.
The handset is confirmed to support GSM/WCDMA/HSPA networks. However, the Engadget report claims that Nokia Lumia 625 may also offer LTE support, although none of the documents filed at TENAA confirms it yet.
The Lumia handsets have gained popularity quite rapidly in the recent months and many customers are on the lookout to buy an alternative to iOS, Android and BlackBerry. Currently, there are a limited numbers of WP8 handsets in the market; however, Nokia has the biggest variety of WP8 smartphones. In the U.S., the company has aggressively launched new handsets at regular intervals.
Nokia has not announced the Lumia 625, so we will have to wait a bit more to see when the handset is officially launched by the company.
