Nokia is all set to launch its biggest Lumia smartphone in India later this week. But it seems Flipkart has crashed the party a wee bit early by putting the Lumia 625 up on pre-order. According to the online retailer, the Lumia 625 will be launched at Rs 19,499 and will be available in stores next week. Also Read - Nokia Lumia 630 vs Nokia Lumia 625: What’s different?
The Lumia 625 was announced last month and is the biggest Lumia smartphone with a 4.7-inch display. However, the specifications leave much to be desired when compared to other smartphones in this price segment as the Lumia 625 features a WVGA display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, just 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. While we are hopeful that thanks to Windows Phone, the processor and display would be just about fine but the meagre 512MB of RAM is a little difficult to explain as many games require 1GB of RAM.

There is a 5-megapixel camera on the rear and a VGA front-facing camera. The phone will also benefit from Nokia’s music store and navigation apps. Flipkart also mentions that Nokia has tied up with Tata Docomo for some data bundling and confirms it will come with free access to Nokia Music Store. However, what has caught our fancy is free access to movies using “your movies app”, which we have not heard about before.

We expect Nokia to formally announce both the Lumia 925 and Lumia 625 later this week. Nokia is also reportedly working on a high-end 6-inch smartphone with a 20-megapixel camera that could be announced later this year.
