£199.99 Nokia Lumia 620; meet the cheapest Windows Phone 8 smartphone on the market

The Lumia 620 by Nokia is the follow up to the Lumia 610 which was hitherto the cheapest Windows Phone smartphone in the UK at well under £100.

The former costs £199.99 at DigitalRev, a popular website with photographers and looks like a variant of the Lumia 710.

Compared to the latter, it swaps the processor, which was a single core MSM8255, for a dual-core Snapdragon S4 model clocked at 1GHz, upgrades the Windows Phone 7.5 OS for a Windows Phone 8 and shoves in a front facing camera plus a microSD card slot.

Other features remain the same; there’s a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 3.8in 800 x 480 ClearBlack display, 512MB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microUSB port and is available in a range of colours (six in all).

Clove Technology, O2 and Three have already confirmed that they will be stocking the Lumia 620.

Nokia also bundled a few interesting features like Smart Shoot, Cinemagraph (which adds motion to still images), City Lens and Nokia Music.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
