Hang in there! Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 soon to be available in India

A Nokia support respresentative has confirmed plans for the company to release the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 Windows Phones in India later this month and into April. Both Windows Phones were unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2013 and have started to appear in multiple markets. Now it's time for the new Windows Phone 8 devices to hit India and be available in an important, emerging market.

So how much will consumers be expected to fork out for both devices? Pricing remains to be confirmed and Nokia still hasn't confirmed details exactly when the hardware will be available for purchase, but it's believed the Lumia 520 will be priced at Rs. 11,500 ($210) while the Lumia 720 will be around Rs. 19,000 ($350). The two handsets join the Lumia 920, 820 and 620, which are already available in the region.

  • Lumia 520 to be priced just 10,500 INR ($193) in India.
  • Actually preorders of Lumia 520 have already been started on sites like flipkart and nokia shop.
  • Pre order has nt started, both says coming soon. But Flipkart has shown it's price. It may be varied until it goes to pre-order. Remeber Lumia 510?
  • Oops! too much excitetment I guess..didn't read it carefully
  • lol No Prob:)
  • Pre-orders started in Germany too and Lumia 520 & 720 and at positions 7 & 8 on Expansys.de of the best pre-orders list.
  • And I'm still waiting for 720 to be released here in Vietnam...
    Didn't they say Vietnam will get it first?
  • Lumia 520 is available now. Up for preorder at an amazing price of Rs. 10,500 along with a free 8GB MicoSD card.
  • @Rich, 
    no speculations.... It's officially Announced today.  
  • Lol, u guys posting about confirmation by chat representative!!!
    The two phones officially launched today in an event held by nokia with guests mainly from fashion and design world... And yes, nokia india announced availability of 520 in early april, and 720 in mid april.
    Consider it to be a week late, as always happens with every nokia phone :P
  • And Filpkart is taking preorders for it 
    Price: 10499/- + 8GB SDcard. 
  • Says coming soon
  • I'll try to "hang in there" for their availability in Canada... (please with Band IV/AWS added...) 8)
    I really wish one could buy these things direct from Nokia rather than through the carriers. :/
  • Flipkart has listed 520. 
  • Needed help in deciding between 620 and 520. As per my understanding the differences are :
    1) 520 has a bigger screen
    2) 520 has no front camera and no flash with rear camera
    3) 520 doesnt have Magnetometer or NFC. (Side question : What wont work without Magnetometer ?)
    Is there anything else that i need to be aware of ?
