Nokia Lumia 620 Dust And Waterproof Covers Officially Confirmed
Nokia launched the affordable Windows Phone 8 (WP8)-powered Lumia 620 in December 2012 and now the handset is getting a dust and waterproof (IP54) cover to keep it safe from occasional liquid spills.
"The protective shell improves the dust and splash protection. The gaps between the camera window and the shell as well as the display and the shell are better sealed, and the mesh that covers the loudspeaker is denser, making it harder for water or dust to get in," says Harri Vuolle, Lumia product manager at Nokia.
Nokia has implemented the shell design with removable back covers in the Lumia 620. The removable outer shell also comes in a range of vibrant colors. The Nokia Lumia 620's protective shell replaces the existing back cover, but comes in only one color with a gray exterior and yellow interior. The interior of the shell is created using a polycarbonate that's fairly rigid, and the exterior is made of a rubber-like material called TPSiV, which is more flexible.
"The Nokia Lumia 620 is such a beautiful device, we wanted to honour the design of the phone while maintaining the same shape and design that fits perfectly in the hand," says Vuolle.
The case provides good protection against general day-to-day mishaps and because it replaces the existing shell of the smartphone; you don't sacrifice on the design of the handset.
"While the protective shell does not make your Lumia 620 indestructible or 100% waterproof, it's ideal for people who enjoy active lifestyle where working up a sweat, getting caught up in a rain or dropping the phone can be a regular occurrence. It's also suits people who want to use their smartphone at work, even if it's a dusty, damp environment," Vuolle also explains.
The Lumia 620 is a decent phone with impressive features in its category. More importantly, the Lumia 620 will give an opportunity to customers looking to experience a WP8-powered phone at a pocket-friendly price.
The Lumia 620 waterproof cover will be available in select markets from the end of March and will have a price tag of 25 Euro ($32.59 ).
