Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system based Nokia Lumia 720 is now available on Flipkart for Rs 18,500. We aren’t banking too much on the price for it might fluctuate on the phone’s actual availability expected later this month.
Nokia had last month announced five smartphones in the Lumia series – Lumia 920, Lumia 820, Lumia 720, Lumia 620 and Lumia 520. Out of these five handsets, all devices except the Lumia 720 have already been made available in India.
The Nokia Lumia 720 is like a younger brother of Lumia 820 smartphone. The Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with 480×800 pixel resolution natively. This smartphone is about 9 mm thick and weights 128 grams. It packs a dual-core 1 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 mobile processor coupled with 512 MB RAM and 8 GB on-board storage. There is a memory card slot to expand the storage with up to 64 GB micro SD card.
Supporting 3G network with up to 21.1 Mbps download speeds, the Lumia 720 offers dual-band WiFi for faster data connectivity. It features a 6.1 megapixel camera at the back with Carl Zeiss optics and capable of recording 720p HD video easily at 30 frames per second. In the front lies 1.3 megapixel camera for video chat.
Other features of this smartphone include Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, Near Field Communication chip, accelerometer, proximity sensor, compass, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support, active noise cancellation with dedicated mic and 7 GB free storage space in Microsoft SkyDrive service.
Nokia has packed a 2000 mAh non-removable battery to deliver talk time of 13 hours on 3G network and about full day on 2G network. This smartphone is the perfect fit between the current Lumia 620 and the Lumia 820 devices.
