Nokia Launches Lumia 625

Nokia  (NYSE: NOK  ) has unveiled its largest phone to date, the Lumia 625.

Seemingly built for media consumption, the Lumia 625 features a 4.7-inch LCD screen. Nokia manufactured the screen to produce high brightness, high sensitivity (for those with gloves on), and readability in sunlight. The phone also comes with 4G/LTE Internet access, 1.2GHz Dual Core Snapdragon S4 processor, and 512MB RAM.

"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," according to product manager Vinay Jayakumar.

Set to launch during the third quarter, the phone will cost customers under $300 before taxes or operator subsidies, the company said, giving its price as "around 220 euros." According to Computerworld, areas including China, Europe, Asia Pacific, India, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America will see the phones first. The publication said Nokia did not announce whether it has plans for U.S. shipments.

The phone will run on the Windows 8 mobile operating system. Additionally, Nokia said it will package the phone with its mobile software apps like Maps and Music, an ad-free, subscription-free music streaming and download service.

The Lumia 625 also comes with 8GB of storage (expandable to 62GB with an SD card), a 5-megapixel camera, and in a variety of colors.
