We continue to execute on our strategy to reach new audiences and new markets," said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. "With its innovative design, the latest Windows Phone 8 software and signature experiences from Nokia, like Nokia lenses, Nokia Maps and Nokia Music, the Nokia Lumia 620 is a highly competitive smartphone at this price point."
The Lumia 620 runs on Windows Phone 8 and has Nokia apps which the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 offer including Cinemagraph, Smart Shoot, City Lens, Music and Drive. However, the handset has a lower specification.
It is powered by a Qualcom Snapdragon S4 Plus 1GHz dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM. Other specs include a 3.8in (480x800) screen, 5Mp rear facing camera and 8GB of internal storage.
Nokia said the Lumia 620 has NFC support and will come with a choice of interchangeable shells in seven different colours. They have a "new dual-shot color technique to deliver a variety of striking color and texture effects".
