MWC 2013: Nokia Unveils Lumia 720 With Modest Specs

During this year’s MWC event, Nokia has kept itself to relatively modest smartphones. Among the releaseS was the Lumia 720, which comes with mid-end specs but packs a rather wholesome punch, thanks to the Carl Zeiss camera technology included in it.

Nokia first started including Carl Zeiss camera technology in its Windows Phone smartphones during last year. The tradition has apparently continued through this year and Lumia 720 arrives with a 6-megapixel rear camera, bearing the PureView branding.

As far as the other specifications of the handset are concerned, they are more or less the same as Lumia 520, also unveiled during the MWC 2013. Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch display which is juiced up using a 1GHz processor, probably also provided by Qualcomm.

Like Lumia 520, it carries 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage space which can be expanded to 32GB using the microSD card slot. One perk that comes with this rather underwhelming handset is that you get to have certain snap-up covers with it, which essentially allow you to wirelessly recharge the smartphone. For avid fans of wireless charging, this is certainly a huge plus.

Moreover, Lumia 720 also includes support for NFC and is available in a whole range of colors. The company didn’t divulge the pricing and availability details regarding the handset but we’ll keep you posted as soon as they’re out.
