Nokia Lumia 520 passes certification in Brazil

Nokia has managed to get the Lumia 520 Windows Phone through certification in Brazil. The smartphone was unveiled at Mobile World Congress and has impressed many with its unique design and incredible price tag. We're looking at 139 euros for the Windows Phone, but vNext expects the local price in Brazil to be more like R$ 599 ($300).

If you're not completely up-to-date with the latest hardware, the Lumia 520 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual Core 1 GHz chip, 4-inch WVGA (480×800 pixels) LCD display, 512MB RAM, 8GB of expandable storage with MicroSD support for up to 64GB. To take the perfect shot, a 5 megapixel rear camera is available, but without flash. To power through the day, a 1430mAh battery is on-board. 

Some features aren't present like NFC, but we're not complaining for the price. It's not known when Nokia expects to make the Lumia 520 available in Brazil, but we expect more details to surface in the near future.
