Nokia announces Lumia 620

In a surprising move Nokia has announced Lumia 620, latest in WP8 line-up. These handset seems to cheaper in WP8 handsets (unless Lumia 520 is announced 🙂 )

Details from Engadget

Nokia announced a surprise new Windows Phone 8 member at LeWeb 2012 in Paris today — the Lumia 620. The entry-level handset has a 3.8-inch TFT screen at WVGA resolution (800 x 480), a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, half a gig of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, expandable by microSD (up to 64GB cards supported). A 5-megapixel shooter with LED flash capable of recording 720p video occupies the back, while a VGA camera is up front for those self-portraits. Connectivity-wise, you’ll get online via WiFi or WCDMA 3G, with NFC and Bluetooth 3.0 taking care of all your sharing and pairing. “Dual-shot color” interchangeable shells mean you’ll be able to personalize your handset beyond switching up the Live Tile layout, and they also keep the 1,300mAh battery under wraps. Excluding taxes and subsidies, the new Lumia will cost $249 dollars when it begins shipping in January next year, first in Asia, then expanding to Europe, the Middle East and other territories later. If you’re looking for a Windows Phone 8 handset but don’t need the best specs out there, perhaps this is your guy — the wallet-friendly Lumia 610 generally impressed us, so we’ve got a feeling this might, too.
