Nokia Lumia 625 priced, confirmed for Q3 launch

Nokia Lumia 625 priced, confirmed for Q3 launchNokia's next Windows Phone should be the Lumia 625, which was spotted last week getting certified in China with a 4.7in display, making it Nokia's biggest-screened smartphone yet.

Now famed Asian oracle DigiTimes has added its voice to the rumours, saying its supply chain sources have confirmed the Lumia 625 will indeed launch this quarter.

Initial claims were talking about a likely launch (in China, anyway) before the end of the month, but with time running out on that one it may well be this latest, more conservative estimate from DigiTimes proves the more accurate one.

The piece only confirms one other spec sheet entry from the earlier leak – the presence of a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, and says nothing about the 800 x 480 resolution, 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM and 2,000mAh battery mentioned in last week's story.

What we do get, however, is a second mention of the $320 (£220) target price, so it seems the details are set: Nokia's next Lumia is quite big, quite cheap and quite possibly on its way to the UK before the end of the quarter.

Nothing like a huge phone with a so--so resolution... Will it feature ClearBlack?

I'm still struggling to see the point in large-screened WP handsets. At least with Android you have high resolutions and some phones can pull off split-screen multitasking. With WP, the OS seems to be designed with 3.5" to 4.3" handsets in mind. The only real benefit seems to be a larger screen for watching Netflix...

I've got an 820 and Netflix looks gash on it

Pointless phone as the Samsung Ativ S 16gb version walks all over it at a cheaper sim-free price...

Nice try Nokia :D
