Nokia reveals budget Lumia 620 for youth market

Nokia is launching a budget Windows Phone 8 smartphone into Europe next year.

The Lumia 620 is the third Nokia device to use Microsoft's latest version of its operating system. The manufacturer said it will target the device at the youth market. The handset has a 3.8-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1GHz processor. The device also has 512MB of RAM.

The camera has similar features to the other recent Lumia devices, including Smart Shoot, which can create a single shot from multiple images. Users will also have access to Nokia's Music and Maps services. The handset is also NFC-enabled, meaning it can be used with devices such as wireless speakers.

Nokia said the device will be on sale for around $249 (£154) and will first go on sale in Asia from January 2013, before hitting the European and Middle Eastern markets shortly after.

Jo Harlow, executive VP for Nokia Smart Devices, said: 'We continue to execute on our strategy to reach new audiences and new markets. With its innovative design, the latest Windows Phone 8 software and signature experiences from Nokia, like Nokia lenses, Nokia Maps and Nokia Music, the Nokia Lumia 620 is a highly competitive smartphone at this price point.'
