Nokia Lumia 620 Waterproof Cases To Debut Soon

Nokia announced a pocket-friendly Windows Phone 8 (WP8) smartphone, the Lumia 620, in December 2012, which packs impressive features at an affordable price. A recent tweet from a Nokia executive indicates that the smartphone will soon get a waterproof cover.

The Lumia 620 may entice many customers looking for a feature-rich and pocket-friendly WP8 smartphone, and a waterproof cover may further increase the popularity of the handset.

"Great news - IP54 protective cover (water- & dustproof!) on it's way for Nokia Lumia 620!" tweeted Sander Teunissen,  B2B Sales Manager for Nokia Netherlands.

Unfortunately, Sander does not provide information like availability, price and what the waterproof cover will look like.

"The cover would, according to the rating, provide good protection against the ingress of dust and will be resistant to water spray from all directions, though not quite so resistant that you would be able to swim with it," reports WMPoweruser.

Nokia released its WP8 line-up of smartphones in November 2012 and the Finnish smartphone maker is one of the few manufacturers to offer a WP8-powered smartphone.  The popularity of WP8 smartphones is increasing slowly and attracts many smartphone users looking for an alternative to iOS and Android.

However, not many WP8 smartphones come at a pocket-friendly price. The Lumia 620 has a competitive price tag which may appeal to many smartphone users wanting to experience WP8 without spending a lot of money.

The Nokia Lumia 620 packs in impressive features in its category. The smartphone sports a 3.8-inch WVGA display with 800 x 480 pixels resolution. A 1 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor powers the handset.

The handset is equipped with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, and also has a VGA front-facing camera for video calls. The Lumia 620 also has 512 MB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, expandable up to 64GB via microSD.
