Nokia Unveils Affordable 4.7-inch Lumia 625 Smartphone

Nokia went all-in with Microsoft's Windows Phone platform, and lest anyone think the Finnish phone maker was going to give it a halfhearted effort, the handset maker added yet another Lumia device to its growing Windows Phone 8 lineup. It's the Lumia 625, an "accessibly priced" 4G handset with a spacious 4.7-inch super-sensitive IPS LCD screen and 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.

It also has 512MB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage (supports up to 64GB via SD card), 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 2000 mAh battery, and of course the latest version of Windows Phone 8.
