Nokia launches Lumia 520 at MWC 2013
The Nokia Lumia 520 will bring high-end power to mid-range prices
Nokia used Mobile World Congress 2013 to expand its suite of Lumia devices and the Lumia 520 is aimed at bringing Windows Phone to the masses at a cheaper price.
The Nokia Lumia looks similar to the Lumia 920, as Nokia said it has consolidated its design philosophy around a few key concepts. The Lumia 520 sports a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage, which can be expanded up to 64GB via the microSD. The Lumia 520 will also have a four-inch, WVGA IPS LCD screen, a 5-megapixel camera that can record 720p HD videos and Bluetooth 3.0.
You may not think those specs are anything crazy compared to some of the other handsets we've seen, but the key thing about the Lumia 520 is that it should retail for less than $200 outright. That type of cheap pricing may help it find a wider market.
The Nokia Lumia 520 will be coming to T-Mobile later this year and it will first launch in China.
