Nokia recently announced that the official price for the Lumia 620, which did quite a bit of a jig in India, has finally been settled . All color options are available at Rs. 14,999, and as might be expected, several online retailers seem to have updated their pages to reflect the phone’s availability.
Known for its colorful back plates, the handset is the lowest in the new Lumia line, looking up at its bulkier siblings, in comparison with which it has been positioned significantly lower. It has a 3.8-inch ClearBlack capacitive multi-touch screen offering up visuals in a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
A 1GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor is capable enough to handle the demands of the Window Phone 8 OS with its appealing re-sizable tiles. Those interested will find a 5MP camera on the back with auto focus and a 2-stage capture key, as well as LED flash. Unfortunately, this snapper doesn’t incorporate a Carl Zeiss Tessar lens. On the front will be a VGA webcam.
There should be 512MB of RAM plus 8GB of internal memory with the possibility to expand storage by up to 64GB. A 1,300mAh battery, it is claimed, can deliver as much as 14.6 hours of talk time. The wireless charging found on higher Lumias hasn’t been featured, but users will benefit from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC.
Flipkart is offering then handset for Rs. 15,199 in all colors and bundles a 16GB microSD Sandisk card along if customers pre-order. Hurry, because the offer ends tonight. Saholic has the lowest listed MRP at just Rs. 14,299, but it’s possible the page hasn’t been updated in a while, and only the black variant can be picked up here.
Indiatimes Shopping has the phone at the same official value as the company in all the colors available, and also grants buyers a cash back voucher worth Rs. 1,100. Meanwhile, Snapdeal, Infibeam and HomeShop18 don’t have the gadget listed.
The Nokia Lumia 620 can also be purchased in the country by availing of 3-month and 6-month EMI schemes for the price of Rs. 5,000 and Rs. 2,500 respectively in which potential buyers will not have to pay any extra charge. Last week we touched upon what might be the handset’s release date, and that seems to have turned out true.
