Most affordable Lumia yet now in the Philippines
Nokia Philippines announced over the weekend that their most affordable Windows Phone 8 device, the Nokia Lumia 520, is now available locally! Priced at just Php7,990, the Nokia Lumia 520 is targeted towards people who are thinking of exploring the Windows Phone 8 experience (switchers from iOS, Android, or BlackBerry) or first-time smartphone users. Here’s a quick rundown of the specifications of the Nokia Lumia 520 for your reference and appreciation:
Nokia Lumia 520 Spec Sheet
- 1GHz Dual-core Snapdragon S4 Processor
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB Internal Storage, expandable up to 64GB via microSD
- 4-inches IPS display, WVGA 800×480 pixels (~235ppi)
- 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus
- WiFi b/g/n, 3G connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS
- 1,430mAh battery rating
- Nokia HERE suite of apps pre-loaded
- Windows Phone 8
The only downer really is that it doesn’t have a front-facing camera. Personally I think Nokia should have put in even a VGA one for video calls and “selfies”.
