As expected, Nokia has finally announced the launch of yet another Windows based Lumia smartphone today. Dubbed as Lumia 625, the smartphone is being considered as a successor of previously launched Lumia 620 that features 3.8-inch ClearBlack LCD display, 1GHz dual-core processor, and 512MB of RAM.
As far as the new Lumia 625 is concerned, it boasts 4.7-inch (800 x 480 pixels) LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection. The display of Lumia 625 is the largest among the Lumia line-up smartphones, and with this smartphone, Nokia is targeting rival’s big Android smartphone like Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One on size, but obviously not on price.
Running on latest Windows Phone 8 platform with the latest Amber update, it packs 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8930 processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB of internal memory, microSD card slot (for memory expansion up to 64GB), and 2000 mAh battery.

It also comes with 4G LTE support in select regions. It has Nokia Music and Here Maps. The phone has pebble design with curved edges and matte finish on the back cover. There are optional interchangeable shells that are constructed of a single piece of translucent polycarbonate.
According to the company, available in six colours namely black, white, green, orange, yellow, and red, Lumia 625 will hit the stores in China, Europe, Asia Pacific, India, Middle East, Africa and Latin America in Q3, 2013 carrying a price tag of €220 Euros (approx.17,305).
