Nokia Lumia 520 available in the USA from T-Mobile
Yesterday, on the first day of the Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced a few devices, two of which are on the bottom of the list with low-end phones and one is Nokia Lumia 520. This is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device by Nokia and is even cheaper than Lumia 620. However, it is slightly better than the latter.
Lumia 520 has a 4’’ LCD screen and the resolution is WVGA – if you remember, 620 sports 3.8’’ WGA display. The quality of the screen image, however, is worse than that of the Lumia 620, especially when it comes to viewing angles. If we compare another features, the new Lumia is as thick as Lumia 820 is, which means 1mm thinner than Lumia 620. For a pity, it does not support wireless charging.
The battery of Lumia 520 is 1430mAh, which again is more than what Lumia 620 offers. Something more – the device sports 8GB storage capacity, which can be extended with a 64GB microSD card. Speaking of the camera, it has only one, in comparison to 620, which has a front camera, too. The rear, however, is 5MP. To put an end to the specs, it employs a dual core processor at 1GHz by Krait and 512MB operative memory.
What’s more exciting, however, is that T-Mobile will be the carrier of the Phone for the USA. It will be under the name Lumia 521 and the only thing that differs from the original model is the 3G frequences. So, the first steps towards its appearance in America are made. What is left now is to find out the release date and the price. Just to mention what we know – the international version will cost you $183.
