Nokia Lumia 625 smartphone

Nokia has announced yet another Lumia smartphone, this time round the Lumia 625.

As if we needed another Lumia handset from Nokia, the Finnish firm has introduced the Lumia 625. Nokia describes it as an "accessibly priced 4G smartphone to help people see more of what they love." See also: Group test: what's the best Windows phone?

Yesterday Nokia teased us by saying it had 'something big' coming so we expected a 5in phablet or even a tablet. However, the Lumia 625 has a modest 4.7in screen. Nevertheless, that still makes it the largest Lumia on offer with the Lumia 920, Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 all with 4.5in displays.

"With our largest smartphone screen to date, the Nokia Lumia 625 is a perfect example of how Nokia is delivering leading smartphone innovation and experiences at every price point," said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, Nokia Smart Devices.

Like others in the Lumia range, the Nokia Lumia 625 comes with five interchangeable shells - orange, yellow, bright green, white and black.

As you would expect, the smartphone runs on Windows Phone 8 and comes with Nokia software including Smart Camera, Cinemagraph and Nokia Music. Like the Lumia 620, it offers a microSD card slot for memory expansion.

"Live Tiles update direct to the home screen, and People Hub makes it easy to stay connected with friends and family. Windows Phone 8 also includes Xbox Live, Microsoft Office, and 7GB of online SkyDrive storage to simply make life easier." said Nokia.

Nokia confirmed that the Lumia 625 will launch in the third quarter with an estimated price of €220.
