Nokia introduces new Nokia Lumia 620 
ESPOO, FINLAND and PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 --  
Nokia's third and most affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone offers
youthful
appeal 
Nokia today introduced the Nokia Lumia 620, the third and most
affordable in its range of Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Alongside the
flagship Nokia Lumia 920 and mid-range Nokia Lumia 820, the
Nokia
Lumia 620 offers a more fun, youthful appeal, and compact
design. 
The Nokia Lumia 620 uses a new dual-shot color technique to deliver a
variety of striking color and texture effects. Dual-shot adds a
second layer of colored,
transparent or translucent polycarbonate on
top of a base layer to produce secondary color blends and depth
effects.  With seven different exchangeable
shells to choose from,
people can adapt the look of their Nokia Lumia 620 to
their own
personal taste and style. 
"We continue to execute on our strategy to reach new audiences and
new markets,"
said Jo Harlow, executive vice president, 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." 
Among the features shared with the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia
820 are exclusive camera lenses that transform the creative power of
the Nokia Lumia
620's five megapixel main camera and VGA front-facing
camera. The Cinemagraph
lens adds simple animations to still
photographs, while Smart Shoot creates a
single, perfect shot from
multiple images, even removing unwanted objects from
the picture. 
The Nokia Lumia 620 also provides access to the world's best maps and
location
experience, including Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia
Transport and the exclusive
Nokia City Lens. Nokia City Lens displays
information about local surroundings
overlaid onto buildings as seen
through the camera viewfinder. 
Making it easy to discover and enjoy new music, Nokia Music provides
free streaming of ad-free tracks without registration or subscription
and the ability
to download playlists for listening offline. 
With NFC support, the Nokia Lumia 620 can easily pair with
NFC-enabled accessories like the JBL PlayUp Portable Speaker for
Nokia. Open and secure NFC-connectivity makes it possible to share
and receive content by tapping with compatible devices, or make secure
payments using the Wallet application in Windows Phone 8. 
Powered by Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 620 delivers a more
personal smartphone experience. Adjustable Live Tiles update direct to
the Start Screen.
People Hub pulls together contact information from
multiple address books and
social networks into a single location,
making it easy to stay in touch with
friends and set up contact
Groups and private Rooms for sharing. From the Me
Tile people can
check in to their location, post an update, set chat status, see
what's new and monitor notifications across Facebook, LinkedIn and
Twitter. Windows Phone 8 also includes Xbox Live, Microsoft Office,
7GB of online SkyDrive storage and faster, safer surfing with
Internet Explorer 10. 
These features and capabilities are enabled by Qualcomm's
Snapdragon(TM) S4 Plus
processors. 
"People can do more of the things they love when they choose a mobile
device
that has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor," said Enrico
Salvatori, senior vice
president and president of Qualcomm Europe.
"The Snapdragon S4 Plus processor is the heart of the Nokia Lumia
620, making it possible to multi-task, stream in HD and share content
at super-fast speeds." 
The Nokia Lumia 620 will be available in a range of colors*
including, lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, white and
black. Estimated at USD 249,
excluding taxes and subsidies, the Nokia
Lumia 620 will begin selling in January
2013 in Asia, followed
closely by Europe and the Middle East before expanding
further. 
* Availability of colored shells may vary by country.
