Product manager Vinay Jayakumar told Conversations, “The transition to 4G is gathering pace. With a super-fast internet connection, there’s a real demand for big, beautiful screens that help bring all the content to life – this is where the Nokia Lumia 625 arrives with a really competitive price to match.”
The Nokia Lumia 625 is also notable for its stand-out design, something Nokia is famous for with the award-winning Lumia range. Vinay says it’s the element of the phone that makes him most proud. Rounded surfaces all over – even down to the edges of the glass – give the phone an organic feel like a smooth pebble. Together with a matt finish, this is a smartphone that you want to roll around in your hand.
Orange starts the range
Available in orange, yellow, bright green, white and black, the layered polycarbonate on the changeable shells gives the surface of the Lumia 625 a translucent quality that signals an evolution in materials design. We cover this and the other design aspects more closely in a separate interview.
The Nokia Lumia 625 comes with all the amazing Nokia apps and services that enrich the navigation, entertainment and imaging possibilities of the Windows Phone 8 operating system. It also comes with the latest Lumia Amber update.
