Nokia Lumia 625 now available in Brazil, let the festivals begin!

The Windows Phone market in Brazil has grown by one device today. The Nokia Lumia 625 has become available through local Nokia Stores in Brazil for $1049 Reais (about $462 US) and will soon be available online through Nokia (opens in new tab).

The Lumia 625 sports a 4.7" 800x480 IPS display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 2, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage space and MicroSD expandability. It has a 5MP rear camera and a front facing shooter.  The Lumia 625 comes loaded with Windows Phone 8, version 10328 (GDR2).

Overall, the Nokia Lumia 625 made a rather appealing first impression (here's our unboxing of the Lumia 625) and it should be a welcome addition to the Brazilian Windows Phone lineup.

  • Uhhh Brazil!!! Thanks guys!!! :)
  • Some guy was crying last night that they don't post about update and stuff for Brazil.
  • I know right!
  • It was me. And, it was me that sent this tip, about the Lumia 625 launch, to some writers. :)
  • I sent this tip 2 weeks ago. Why didn't I get recognition!
  • So you came from the future??
    This device was released only today.
  • Y'all have some hot women over there.. Must be fun..
  • The price will drop in a couple of months :)
  • Will Microsoft launch its phones in developing countries like India,Brazil on the same launch date in US?
  • Only some of them
  • Then it will surely gonna lose market to cheap androids should treat all markets equally amd launch all phones IMO
  • Dude. India is a developing country. It is not a third world country.
  • I meant no offense.Its fixed BTW
  • Thanks man :) sentiments well up, can't help it :P thanks for fix :)
    *Multinational fist bump*
  • Multinational?? I am an indian too :P
  • :O
  • Check it, India and Brazil don't figure in any of the third world country list (words are powerful and so is knowledge):
  • Hope they dont skip our they skipped surface rt & surface pro
  • And no, it takes time to reach different markets based on their regions. US and UK lead the pack.
  • Is micro SD support buggy in WP 8? Just wondering if it works well on these mid and low tier devices.
  • Lumia 521, never had a problem
  • Yeah... Surprisingly it works great. One use case scenario is when I copy my music library to the SD card and it automatically shows in the music hub. Same with photos and docs :)
  • But lags in music player when we swiped to all songs tab!? Its lagging for me !!
  • It's already available on Nokia stores and on other retailers in Portugal. A country where there are more cell phones than inhabitants.
    I demand an exclusive article on this most relevant matter!!! (For those unfamiliar with the concept of sarcasm, that last sentence is an example of it. You're welcome ;P)
  • ;)
  • Corny title. LOL...
  • I saw it yesterday, a nice device
  • Brazil here. You can buy an 820 here cheaper than this 625. But I think this price will drop quickly.
  • 625 is worse and more expensive than a 720 or a 820, don't know what's up with nokia but this does not sound right!
  • A little pricey, considering that you can get a  Nexus 4 for 999 reais or U$400 (off contract).
  • Good, now make 1520 come to Tmobile usa
  • What is Nokia thinking ? Goshhh. Brazillian here. Man, I can get a Nokia 820 or a Ativ S a waaaaaaay cheaper than this 625, NO ONE, I repeat, NO ONE is going to buy this. That's NONSENSE. I'm so Sad with this price, is gonna be a disaster.
  • Totally agree! No way it should cost more than 820! Nokia Brazil r u insane??? I just convinced 2 people at home about changing their iPhones to lumias devices. 625 would be the third, but with this price tag it will be very unlikely to happen... Sad
  • No glance screen huft
  • I'll kill for this screen size but the fact that you can't take advantage of it. The 512mb ram just spoils the fun :(
  • Lumia 820 costs $300 (US Dollars) here in Brazil. So.... Why anyone should buy Lumia 625? Just to get a wider screen? No, thanks! Epic fail.
