Nokia Lumia 625 is up for pre-order in India from online retailers. It is listed on Flipkart with a price tag of Rs. 19,499. Nokia has announced Lumia 625 officially last month. It is not yet launched in India officially though. According to the Flipkart listing the expected launch date is 5th week of August in India.
Lumia 625 looks like an upgrade over the Lumia 620, but both phones differ in specifications. The Lumia 625 has a bigger display at 4.7-inch and supports LTE, which is not of much use since LTE penetration in India is very poor. Another difference over 620 is 625 gets a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, the former has 1GHz processor.
Lumia 625 features a 4.7-inch display at 480 x 800 pixels resolution, but the pixel density is just 198 ppi which is very less. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM. This phone runs on Windows Phone 8 and expected to come with Windows Phone Amber update that includes support for FM Radio and other features.

Price & Availability: We don’t know the official price of Lumia 625, but it is up for pre-order at Rs. 19,499, so till we hear from Nokia that is the price. This time the pricing is a big deal breaker for Nokia, the suggested price is quite for Lumia 625 if you look at the specifications. We think that the falling Rupee against dollar might have weighed in for this type of pricing. Earlier Lumia 620 and 520 are sensible priced and are responsible for ringing the cash registers at Nokia.
It is available from online retailers and according to those listings it will be available from 5th week of August.
It will be available in orange, yellow, bright green, white and black, those who love Cyan will surely miss it. Like the Lumia 620 the back shells can be exchanged.
