With Mobile World Congress 2013 just around the corner, it makes sense that we start hearing about some new phones from Nokia. Up on the list are the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720, expected sequels to the current Lumia 510 and Lumia 710 series but with OS upgrades and more refined specifications.
The news come via recent filing with Indonesia's equivalent to the FCC, lending heavy credence to their existence (that and we are expecting a 710-follow up with Windows Phone 8). The Lumia 720 (RM-885), listed as manufactured in China, could be destined for many markets including T-Mobile US where the Flame was recently outed. Likewise, the Lumia 510 (RM-914) is also listed on the Indonesia filing.
The document does not give any details, but an unknown and evidently non-confirmed source reportedly gave the specifications of both devices to MyNokia Blog. Because of that, we have to take these with an extreme amount of caution, seeing as this could easily be made up. Having said that, let’s not kid ourselves—the 520 and 720 are entry level and mid-range phones, so their features shouldn’t be too extravagant.
- Lumia 720 (aka "Fame"): 4.3-inch ClearBlack Display, 1Ghz Dual-core processor, 512Mb RAM, 8GB storage, HSPA+, microSD, 6MP camera and 2MP front camera.
- Lumia 520 (aka "Zeal"): 4-inch Super Sensitive screen, 1Ghz Dual-core processor, 512Mb RAM, 8GB storage, microSD, 5MP rear camera and no front camera.
The anonymous sources were sure to point out the word "devices," when they said that there would be five of them unveiled at MWC. This denotes that we may see what has been a long-anticipated tablet from the Finnish manufacturer.
