Nokia just announced the mid-range Windows Phone 8 running Lumia 720 smartphone. The device sports a 4.3-inch WVGA resolution (800×480 pixels) display and runs on 1.0GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor. It’s also equipped with 512MB of RAM, 8GB of storage, microSD slot, 6.7 MP rear camera with f/1.9 aperture and a front-facing 1.3 MP HD camera with wide-angle lens.
Nokia claims that the Nokia Lumia 720 delivers a high-end camera performance at a mid-range price point, though it isn’t labeling this phone as PureView enabled. The phone is meant to fill in the gap between the Lumia 620 and Lumia 820.
A large f/1.9 aperture and exclusive Carl Zeiss optics are designed to deliver bright, clear pictures day and night, while the HD-quality, wide-angle front-facing camera makes taking pictures with friends and video calling more enjoyable. The sleek and stylish smartphone comes with the latest high-end Nokia Lumia experiences, including Nokia Music, the HERE location suite, and the option to add wireless charging with a snap-on wireless charging cover.
