FCC Doc Leak Reveals Specifications for Nokia Lumia 720

Nokia on Tuesday tried to get a mystery device suspected of being the Lumia 720 past FCC approval using a code name. The company's attempt at subterfuge proved less than successful, however.

The Finnish manufacturer had hoped to keep the handset relatively under wraps until its scheduled release date later this year, but the FCC's webpage just outed the manual, specs and all.

Typically, the FCC approval process indicates that a device is about to be released domestically.

The Lumia 720, as well as its lower-end cousins are currently available only overseas or through an importer.

According to the leaked FCC documents and confirmed by spec sheets for the phone's foreign counterpart, the Lumia 720 features a more-than-decent chipset that will be used to power nothing remotely resembling a modern data connection. There is no LTE, only 3G. The phone will sport a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 1,430mAh battery and an 800 x 480 IPS display.

It's unclear still how many colors the phone will be available in, but there will definitely be several, including black, baby blue, and white.     

Although it's somewhat puzzling that Nokia intends to release a 3G-powered smartphone in 2013, it should not come as a surprise to anyone. The company has become fairly renowned in recent years for technical missteps that seem to mostly stem from sheer naiveté.     

The Lumia 720 does not include support for WCDMA 900/2100 bands, so it's a US-bound device, or a very expensive paperweight.

The news comes amid a torrent of leaks oozing from the Finnish outfit. On Sunday, screenshots from a Verizon inventory system confirmed the existence of a Lumia 928, rumored to be replacing the underwhelming Lumia 822.

In February, EvLeaks defied a media embargo to publish pictures of the Lumia 520 and 720 from the Mobile World Congress.
