Nokia Lumia 625 spotted getting certified in China

Nokia Lumia 625 spotted getting certified in ChinaRemember the Nokia mega-leak we covered last week – you know, the extensive product roadmap we suggested not taking too seriously?

Turns out we may have been jumping the gun, as one of the many devices mentioned – the Nokia Lumia 625 – has just popped up again, and is being tipped to launch in the next few weeks.

Images of a “Nokia 625H” have been spotted on the official Chinese radio certification site, and point to a 4.7in display (last week's rumours claimed 4.6in, so close enough).

The display resolution is just 800 x 480, however, and the dual-core 1.2GHz S4 processor, 512MB of RAM and 5-megapixel camera are equally low end, pointing to a budget handset at the base of the Lumia range.

Interestingly, though, it does come with LTE support, and so should be one of the cheapest 4G-capable handsets around when it touches down.

According to an insider source quoted by The Verge, that should happen over the next few weeks – well, in China anyway, where it's being tipped to launch with a price tag of just CNY1999 (around £220).

Nokia seem to be getting as bad as Samsung with a new model out almost every week it seems. Can't these companies just create and release a couple of new models every six months or once a year and put all the available technology into them instead of releasing half baked products.
