At their MWC pres event Nokia unveiled two new device –the 520 and the 720. The Lumia 720 is the higher-end of the two budget conscious devices. Unlike some other companies attempts at offering cheap Windows Phone devices this one is running Windows Phone 8. It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot. The screen measures in at 4.3 inches at a 800 x 480 resolution. It is covered with a 2.25D version of Gorilla Glass 2, features Nokia’s ClearBlack filter, and the same super-sensitive touch found on the 920 and 820.
The Lumia 720 sports a 6.7 megapixel back-side illuminated sensor with a f/1.9 aperture. Like most other Nokia phones the lens on this is made by Carl Zeiss. It can also capture 720p HD video at 30 fps. The front camera is 1.3 megapixel and will support HD video chat on Skype. The camera apps comes with the new Glam Me digital lens. The lens will allow you to adjust your eyes, whiten your teeth, and change the color saturation to help you create the best picture of you possible.
Other features include GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, and changeable covers with the ability to add wireless charging. For now, it looks like this one will be only making its way to Asia and some parts of Europe. But if that change I will keep you updated. If you are lucky enough to live in those markets then you will be able to pick one of in either black, cyan, yellow, red, or glossy white for €249.
