Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone Ships In India For Rs. 14,999
The Nokia Lumia 620 is now available on Nokia India's store for Rs. 14,999 ($273).
Nokia originally launched the Lumia 620 in India in January. It became available for pre-order on flipkart.com for Rs. 15,199. At the recent Mobile World Congress, Nokia showcased the phone along with the 520 and 720.
The release of the device comes amid delays from Nokia and it is unknown why such a wait took place, though it may have been based on large demand seen from emerging markets. The Rs. 14,999 price makes the 620 the cheapest Windows 8 phone device from Nokia, although that distinction will go to the 520 when it arrives. Yellow and black versions of the 620 are not currently available but you can choose from other colors like magenta, cyan, white and green. Take a look here.
Nokia's pricing of the device gives it a competitive edge, pairing it against phones like the HTC One V (Rs 15,000) and the Samsung Galaxy S Duo. The two devices are similar to the 620 in terms of specs.
Speaking of specs, here are some of the Lumia 620's features:
Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1 GHz
Adreno 305 graphics processing unit
512 MB of RAM
8 GB of internal storage (expandable to 64 GB through microSD memory card)
3.8-inch ClearBlack touchscreen display
5-megapixel rear camera
VGA front-facing camera for video calls
1300 mAH Li-Ion battery (9.6 hours of talk time and 15 days standby time)
The Lumia 620 is expected to do well in India. Its affordable price is part of Nokia's strategy to make the Lumia more accessible to Indian consumers. It slashed prices on a few models in February and also hopes to grow its Asha line, which is mainly comprised of low- to mid-range phones aimed toward those in developing countries.
Given the competitive price, do you think the Lumia 620 will do well with Indian consumers?
