Nokia Lumia 520


It has been two months of announcement of Nokia Lumia 510 and now the rumors have spread a lot that Nokia is planning to launch Nokia Lumia 520 another budget Windows Phone OS smartphone.The screen has a resolution of 800 x 480 — aka the old Windows Phone 7 resolution. It looked bright and clear during a brief hands on but less contrasty than the Lumia 720 (which includes Nokia’s Clear Black display tech).

Under the hood the 520 has a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon chip — giving it the same amount of power as the former entry level Lumia 620. It handled the Windows Phone UI well,feeling fast and responsive during my encounter with it.On the back there’s a five megapixel lens, which supports 720p HD video recording. While more expensive Lumiaszhave had lots of tender loving care lavished on their camera kit, the 520 sits in Nokia’s unbranded camera category, so set your expectations accordingly.Other connectivity features like A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 are now comes on almost every smartphone.But be sure it’s not an Android or iOS so you have to compromise in Apps and games available in the store.
The Lumia 520 will be the lowest cost Windows phone, says Nokia, and will be available for around 139 euros (around $183) and that’s without carrier subsidies.
