Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 720 [MWC 2013]


Nokia launched the Lumia 720 earlier today at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, another mid-range Windows Phone 8 device which sits between the flagship Lumia 920 and low end Lumia 520 (also announced today). The 4.3-inch IPS clearblack display is pretty impressive to look at, and like other Lumia phones, Lumia 720 comes in variety of vibrant colors as well. Unlike Lumia 920, the Lumia 720 is pretty light and good to hold in your hands.

It’s powered by 1 GHz Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor and 512MB of RAM, with 8GB of internal memory and a microSD slot expandable upto 32GB. The 6.7 megapixel camera on the rear comes with LED flash and can record HD (720p) videos at 30fps. Nokia is promising a standby time of 520h and talk time of 13.5h with its 2000mAh battery.

All in all, Nokia Lumia 720 is a mid-range smartphone with great build but less-than-impressive specs and is priced at 249 Euros. It’ll be available in Hong Kong, Vietnam & Singapore in Q1 2013, followed by China & India in Q2 2013. We grabbed a quick hands-on with the device at MWC 2013, so check it out.
