After dozens of rumors involving the possible releases of Nokia Lumia series, the Finnish company took the MWC-2013 to end the rumors and launched the Lumia 520, which comes to the market with the title of world’s cheapest smartphone powered by Windows Phone 8 to compete with large appliances marks. The suggested retail price of the handset is €139 (about 184 USD), excluding local taxes and import duties. The gadget has hardware capabilities that surprises for its price: dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor at 1 GHz, 5 MP camera on the back, 512 MB RAM and 8 GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD cards up to 64 GB).
The screen resolution is 800x480 pixels in a 4-inch display featuring Super Sensitive Touch technology, which allows the device to use even with gloves. Additionally, the Lumia 520 comes to market in five different colors: yellow, blue, red, white and black.
There is still no official date for the arrival of the device to the market, but, according to SlashGear, Nokia should make the first international shipments next month.
