Lumia 625

Today Nokia unveiled the Lumia 625.  It’s a mid-tier Windows 8 phone that will make its way to China, Europe, Asia Pacific, India, Middle East, Africa and Latin America in Q3 2013.

So why even make mention of the handset, especially since most of our readers are based in the US?  The Lumia 625 is the first phone from the maker to include a 4.7-inch display.  That, however, is its most remarkable asset.

Powering the handset, aside from the 2000mAh battery, is a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, which should suffice just fine for a handset of this ilk.  Less lack luster is a 5-megapixe cameral, and no, Nokia hasn’t included their Pureview technology.  So you’ll need to look to the soon to be released Lumia 1020 for that experience.

Other features include 512MB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage with microSD card (the linked site says SD card for some reason) support for up to 64GB of storage, a WVGA display with Super Sensitive Touch (you can use it with gloves) and your choice of color (orange, yellow, bright green, white or black).

The Lumia 625 will sell for 220 Euros (~$290).
