Nokia Lumia 720 available for pre-order in Russia

The Lumia 720 is now available for pre-order on the N-Store in Russia. Nokia's new Windows Phone will sell for 14,990 rubles ($480) as was previously covered, and will be available in red, white, yellow and black. The device will launch on April 12th, according to the pre-order page.

The Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch IPS display (480x800), 1GHz dual-core chip, with 8GB internal storage (SD support included) and 512MB RAM. The added bonus with the Lumia 720 is the front-facing camera. This 1.3MP shooter joins the 6.7MP main camera on the rear of the device.

Those who are waiting for the Lumia 520 will have some time to go through yet.

  • At the end of the article, I think you mean Nokia Lumia 720.
  • And in the picture ;)
  • Is it just me or is the 720 turning out to be a little overpriced ?
    I was actually looking forward to getting this but more in the range of $350 ..
  • Russia prices and the pre-order prices always give that image. Smartphones are not cheap in Europe with ~24% value added tax, even more expensive in countries like Russian and Brazil where high end smartphones can cost way above $1000.
    It needs to slot between Lumia 620 that's suggested price is 249 euros and 369 euros of Lumia 820 (that's with tax).
  • Bang on with the price range... considering that it doesn't offer that much over the 520 , apart from the camera(s)..
    This IS ,arguably, the best looking Lumia in terms of design and dimensions...should sell like hotcakes if they get the price right..
  • In Thailand Lumia 720 is available and the price is 10 900 bahts ($370) and the initial prices are always a bit higher...
  • Russian cellphones are usually overpriced. Let's just wait for it to come across the world.
  • Jeez...all of these phones are expensive..I got my Nokia Lumia 920 for 300 on the dot off contract
  • When will it come in India..
  • I just pre-ordered mine for 15,750 INR (288 USD) on eBay
    Apparently it will launch mid-April in India. Can't wait to get my hands on it! :)
