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.

  • I would love to have this as a 2nd phone.
  • Man I cant wait for the day that im able to say I can afford a second phone even though im not sure why I would need a second phone.
  • In case your first phone breaks
  • So would I. A nice substitute for my Lumia 800.
  • Would have been nice if it had a ffc I'd get it
  • Me too.. That's why I got the L620
  • The l620 is nice too
  • @absolut already have a second phone in the form of a 510 to my 820. Still I hope this comes to India. Want to pick one up for mom.
  • My cousins there should be happy. Im really upset the 900 doesn't have a micro sd slot though.
  • This would make an amazing Music/video player!
  • This phone would be a killer if it had 1 gb of ram... =( too many games will not run on it It would probably be my first choice! Probably will buy the 920 instead!
  • This is good for Brazilians ...But it is very likely that the Lumia 720 won't be release in Brazil. Nokia will not lead all Lumias with WP8 for Brazil.
