Nokia unveils Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 mid-range smartphones running Windows Phone 8 at the Mobile World Congresss
The most exciting devices from Nokia at the Mobile World Congress this year are the two Lumia smartphones. Both the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 runs on Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 operating system. Nokia rank their Lumia range of phones by numbers from 100 to 999 where higher is better. Lumia 520 and 720 are therefore considered to be mid-range models. They have both a 480 x 800 pixel display resolution and while the Lumia 520 display is 4-inch, the Lumia 720 has a larger 4.3-inch display. We have just entered the phone data into the Esato phone specification directory and had to look closely to find the difference in these two devices. Besides the larger display on the Lumia 720, what we found was that the Lumia 720 has NFC, a higher resolution camera (6.7 megapixel compared to 5 on Lumia 520), LED flash, front camera and a more powerful battery.
What we did find interesting was the promised talk time of 23.5 hours. That is 1404 minutes! A new record as it is the highest number in our database. What gives away that these are mid-range models are the relatively low display resolution, and a 6.7 megapixel camera. Both models are powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and they have 512 MB RAM on board. The 8 GB internal storage can be expanded by inserting a microSD card
