Nokia unveils Lumia 625 affordable 4G smartphone in London

Nokia has unveiled the latest addition to its Lumia smartphone range at an intimate launch event in London, touting the Lumia 625 as "one of the most affordable 4G devices" in the UK.

In addition to 4G connectivity, the Lumia 625 will feature a 4.7in LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, as well as packing a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and a 2,000mAh battery.

Elsewhere, the Lumia 625 sports a 5-megapixel primary camera as well as a VGA (480p) front-facing shooter. The device features key measurements of 133.25 x 72.25 x 9.15mm and weighs 159g.

There's also room for a microSD card slot and the Lumia 625 will, of course, run Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 mobile OS. (opens in new tab)

Nokia indicated this morning that the product will come to market in "early-September" and will retail for £200.

Typical of the Lumia range, the Lumia 625 comes available in a range of bold colours, including orange, yellow, green, white and black. It offers changeable shells and Nokia was keen to talk up the handset's semi-transparent design.

The Lumia 625 will arrive on a range of carriers, including EE, Vodafone and O2, as well as selling through Phones 4u and the Carphone Warehouse.

Stay tuned for more, as we're hoping to get our paws on the device shortly for some hands-on shots.

The Lumia 625 is the third recent launch from Nokia, sitting alongside the Lumia 1020 (opens in new tab) and Lumia 925. (opens in new tab)
