Nokia Lumia 720 tops Samsung’s Galaxy range as the bestselling handset on Flipkart
Nokia seems to doing quite well in India with its Lumia range of phones slowly carving out a niche for themselves. Its latest launches like the Lumia 520, Lumia 620 and Lumia 720 are doing quite well in their respective segments and it no surprise that the Lumia 720 is currently topping the best sellers chart on Flipkart.
When you sort the phones on Flipkart based on their popularity, the Lumia 720 comes up top, ahead of the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Grand, Galaxy S III and Micromax’s Ninja A89 among others. The list also contains feature phones, which is an indication that the Lumia 720’s success is not only restricted to its own segment. The handset has also been well received by people with nearly 148 users reviewing the product with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5.
The Lumia 720’s success comes at a time when phones across Nokia’s range are doing quite well and the Finnish company shipped nearly 62 million handsets worldwide in the first quarter of 2013. Of these 62 million, Nokia says that they shipped 5.6 million Lumia smartphones, which can be attributed to the recent launch of phones like the Lumia 520, Lumia 620 and Lumia 720.
Just to remind you of specifications on the Lumia 720 which launched for Rs 18,999, the phone sports a 4.3-inch WVGA clear black display that works with gloves too and is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM.
