Is the Lumia family about to grow? The latest round of rumors suggests so, and now more sources are coming out in support of two new mid- and low-rangers for Nokia's lineup: the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520.
A tipster sent in detailed specifications to MyNokiaBlog, but the site isn't quite so confident in them yet to give a concrete favoring. Regardless, the details are sensible and they use codenames we've heard before.
First up is the Nokia Lumia 720, which will run Windows Phone 8 with a 4.3-inch ClearBlack screen, a 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a MicroSD card slot, a 6-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front camera. The codename for the device was also given as Zeal, which was rumored last year with very similar specs.
The second device is the Nokia Lumia 520, which will be an upgrade from the 510 in that it will actually run Windows Phone 8 instead of 7.8. The handset, codenamed 'Fame', should pack in a 4-inch Super Sensitive screen, a 1.0 Ghz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a MicroSD card slot, and a 5-megapixel rear camera with no front camera. Sounds like it should give the Lumia 620 a run for its money (literally).
While you may remain skeptical of these devices being real, we have one more piece of evidence to present. Both of these devices appeared in Indonesian certification documents. So it looks like MWC will be a crowded affair for Nokia after all.
