Nokia officially announces the Lumia 720 Windows Phone

Nokia has unveiled and officially announced the Lumia 720 today at Mobile World Congress. The previously rumoured handset is now heading to markets, particularly to those who have no LTE access, and will be priced at €249. While considered mid-range, Nokia has managed to pack some serious features into the smartphone.

The Lumia 720 sports a 4.3-inch WVGA display (as previously revealed by AdDuplex), 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB RAM and 8GB storage with microSD support. What's more is Nokia has implemented its super sensitive display technology into the device, much like the Lumia 920 - go on, get those gloves out.

NFC is also present, as well as wireless charging (with an optional compatible snap on shell / cover). For the photo buffs, the Lumia 720 has a HD 1.3 FFC with a wide angle lens and a rear 6.7MP shooter with a f1.9 aperture. To power all of this technology, the Lumia 720 has a 2000 mAh battery.

If you're looking at the Lumia 720, the Windows Phone will be available in red, white, cyan, black and gloss yellow. The Lumia 720 will be introduced to China in a TD SCDMA variant. Stay tuned for more information from the floor.
