By: Sean Patterson - July 23, 2013

Just two weeks ago, Nokia announced its new flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, the Lumia 1020. That device’s big feature is a 41MP camera and the software to take advantage of it. Now, Nokia has announced a mid-priced Windows Phone 8 smartphone that’s big feature is being big.

Nokia today announced the Lumia 625, the manufacturer’s largest Windoes PHone 8 smartphone to date. The device has a 4.7-inch screen, comparable to the size of Samsung’s newer Galaxy S smartphones. The 625 also has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 512MB of memory, and 8GB of storage. It does not sport the high-end camera of the 1020, instead having a 5-megapixel rear camera.

Nokia is hoping to position the 625 as a mid-priced smartphone for Europe, Asia, India, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa. Nokia did not mention a North American launch in its announcement. The device will be available some time during Nokia’s third fiscal quarter and will retail for €220. As is customary for Nokia’s devices, the 625 will launch in a variety of colors, including orange, yellow, green, white, and black. The device also includes shells in these colors for an easily changeable appearance.
