Nokia Lumia 625 Specifications

Full specs for the Nokia Lumia 625 leak ahead of big unveil tomorrow

There’s a big Nokia event happening tomorrow. It also happens to be that we’ve been seeing leaks over the past week of a big, 4.7-inch Nokia Lumia 625. The cat is out of the bag, the full specs have been released online showing off what we’ve suspected to be an entry-level smartphone.

Full specs for the Nokia Lumia 625 leak ahead of big unveil tomorrow



I don't see what the "big" fuss is about. The screen is not much bigger than the 920, 925, 928 and 1020.
Big screen, low specs, low price point? Hmmm.....
I think the launch of the 625 could have been made with a lot less fanfare. :/
(Samsung Ativ S has a 720p, 4.8" screen)

I was really hoping Nokia would come up with a tablet, but I kinda saw this coming... Oh well, I'm happy enough with my 925

I'm a bit curious how Nokia is doing the numbering scheme. Just prior to the 625, I had thought 5xx==lowend super cheap no frills budget, 7xx==midrange, the phone for people that don't want absolute lowest cost, 9xx==gotta have the best or geek status phone.
I had wondered if the "even #s" 6xx/8xx were to be de-emphasized/killed.
Are the trying to wedge in a few more levels? Or is the 625 basically a low budget big screen phone ?

"Or is the 625 basically a low budget big screen phone ?" - yes.
It is called 625 because 630 is reserved for the next generation, i guess.

Lo/mid-range phone gets SD card expansion but top-of-the-line $700 phone gets short end of the stick. I'll say this once to Nokia: WTF!!!!!!

This phone looks pretty good. Nice that they are offering such a large screen on a device that will be a lot cheaper than the flagships. I'm also impressed that there's a 2000 mAh battery included. Not too shabby at all.

I think that the starting price will be around 350$ in USA but will drop very fast. Maybe it will be 300 but I don't want to be too optimistic :D

Too many identical devices. Now i cant tell apart 6xx and 7xx . Same specs, almost same price as well. Im sure next 7xx will have Lte, big screen. Just wonder, maybe it's almost as good as 8xx if they use 1gb ram, so they just differentiate series by ram. Man i cant guess what specs the next 7xx could be!

I just wish a 720(725) with 1gigs of RAM at the price 720 was first launched. That would be a sweet sweet deal for any market. 

its a great phone with affordable price i say this phone going to be a hit for people who want big screen wp with cheap price

If this is more than $199, it's a bad deal.
512MB means thrashing when loading more complex desktop sites, a problem I have with my Lumia 521.
800x480 on a 4.7" screen is kind of downie.
Nokia needs a solid mid-tier phone with an average camera, around $299-$350 price point.
1280x768, 4.5", 1GB, LTE

Some worse than 620. The rest is much better. Gorilla glass2 curved, aupersensitive, radio, 2000mah, 4,7", 4G.

I have 620 and going confused now

That's the big news? Got me all excited for nothing. Device good for the emerging market and the budget conscious.

And so surely that makes this "big news" for Why would "big news" need to be about a higher end device...? Frankly most of us who are on a budget didnt complain when the 9xx and 1020 were announced because we saw them as WP for people with a bit bigger budget. So now, don't trash talk on a blog about a budget phone just cos its not news which is perhaps relevant to yourself.

The word "big" gives me the impression of something innovative, something bold. Sure the 625 is big but not innovative nor bold. Could have just said something "new" instead.

Sounds pretty much exactly what I expected when they teased a larger device weeks (months?) ago so all good!
<Insert comment about lack of a cyan cover option here. Really annoyed Nokia seem to be ditching that colour or making it an exclusive. As nice as the yellow and red look, I've never felt I had a phone so personal to me until I had a cyan Lumia 900 and the lack of an upgrade path (unless it's a 520 (too low specced) or 620 (too small)) is a real shame.>
Otherwise, this sounds like a great phone! If it's the same price as the 620 (around £150 on PAYG in the UK) then it'll be a winner. Perfect for people who don't have lots of a money but still want a big phone and also perfect for older folks who need a bigger screen but don't need all the bells and whistle that come with high-end devices. If my parent's Lumia 710s ever break, this would be the perfect option for them.
201ppi is NOT crap, lol! Most laptops and desktop monitors don't even reach 140ppi and they're fine. Also, the HTC Titan had this exact screen size and resolution almost two years ago (It's crazy how ahead of the times HTC used to be, had a 16MP camera too iirc) and it actually looked fine. Obviously 300ppi is great, and I would prefer that in my phones now that I've had it on my 8X, but it's not really a deal breaker for most people.
This isn't a phone for people who want high-end so to compare it to a 720p or 1080p screen of the same size isn't fair.

I disagree with the screen resolution. 4.7" it's a big screen to have only 800x480. I belive 800x480 it is good in screen until 4".  A 1280x768 suits better in this size of screen. Nokia Why not 1Gb of Ram?

And are you going to pay the manufacturers all the millions it will take to add in the features you listed so as to keep the price down for the budget consumer....?

If it gets more units shifted from a PAYG perspective, more WP users on board, Nokia's profile raised.. How can any of this be bad?

Some people think everything released has to drip tech juice everywhere and miss the bigger picture.

This is a good phone for my Mum! I'm pretty sure she'll appreciate that big, super-sensitive screen :)

OK, Nokia, you've released another goddam slab, but with a big goddam screen. Now how about just one muthafucken device with a keyboard FFS? Holy sweet Jesus my patience is running out. LOL!!! Well, let's wait until after the other storage debacle has gone the way of the disappearing keyboard bug first...

Big mid range phone but it's really a huge jump in display if that's true, 4.1" or 4.2" inch would make more sense compared to Lumia 620 because there needs to be phone with a normal size of the screen in the lineup. So what are the expactations for 525, 725, 825 ? 4.3", 4.5", 4.7" ?
Also - the design is nice for the Lumia devices but am I the only one that (after 10 similar models) wants to see it tweaked a bit ? Time for a jump to 550, 650 etc. (or 777, 888, 999).

With the 52x devices selling so well, this one should be another hit with that huge screen and a low price point. Between this and the 1020, Nokia is making all the headlines lately.

If price nearly to Galaxy Grand or Duos(which is selling like a hot cake in india) then this big wiill be big win for nokia..

Changeable cases? Hope Nokia keep their word on this one and release those cases with phone. Still waiting for the cases to be released for my L620 here in India.

Nokia is in dire need to create bonafide branding for it's Lumia line because people still to this day associate Nokia with Trac-Phones sold at 7-11 and as the preferred cell phone amongst terrorists and drug dealers.

The only way to create a brand is to get the product in as many hands as possible.

When that happens, CNET, BGR, Endgadget and the rest of the internet tech fishwraps will no longer be able to continue ignoring it.

You can't create a domino effect without knocking down that first domino

As someone pointed out , Samsung has been more in the news in India atleast for the Galaxy Grand rather than S4 and this phone priced competitively will give the Grand some trouble ...
For those moaning on display parameters , Grand has a 5 inch screen with 187 dpi whereas 625 is a 4.7 inch with 201 dpi ...
on the other hand ... this has slightly made it more confusing when choosing against a 720 ... 720 obviously has a much better camera, wireless charging  ... but a smaller screen , less powerful processor ... hmmm ... and considering that the price of a 720 is slightly lesser than galaxy grand ... where would the pricing of this be ?

People are forgetting something else, that is BIG! This phone is released now in August 2013(it will reach all markets by this time) and Windows will release 8 Blue in the begining of 2014, which will have 1 year support. So you'll have a brand new phone with one and a half year support?because of the budget specs it won't support next Windows after blue. Thats too little time. It will be exactly like users who bought WP 7 at the end cycle, they have almost no support, most of them are still crying on forums.

But as long as their apps are still working, most people won't care about the OS version number. I'm not a heavy app user, but the ones I really use are available on both WP7 and WP8, so there's not that much difference picking up my Lumia 800 or 720. App wise they do exactly the same job. It's not all about support from MSFT/ Nokia but also about app developer support.

*512MB - No games
*8GB - no free space
*no hd and 4.7" screen - ugly high size screen
= trash²
I've spent  $400 on my L620 and  feel stolen by Nokia...

1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 and 512MB RAm, 4G and expected price tag of 17000INR ( 280$) . This thing gonna be a sure hit after 520 and 720 in emmerging markets like india. i think i m gonna get one for my young brother.  and the fact ,512MB is good enough for 99% of apps makes it a real good deal.
