It’s probably common knowledge by now that the Nokia Lumia 520 is Nokia’s most popular Windows Phone handset to date. In fact it seems that it is probably the most popular Windows Phone handset so far, so we guess it’s to no surprise that Nokia has announced a successor in the form of the Lumia 525. We had heard rumors about the Lumia 525 for a while now and even had its specs leak not too long ago, but we guess it looks like things are official at last.
While there’s no word on pricing or availability, it seems that for now the Lumia 525 will be headed for Africa, the Middle East, and the Asia Pacific region, but it is unclear as to whether those of us living stateside will be seeing it. Then again the Lumia 520 was launched in the US as T-Mobile’s Lumia 521, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if Nokia decided to release a variant for the US as well. In terms of the specs, the earlier leak appeared to be on point.
The Lumia 525 will feature a 4” display and will sport a 5MP rear-facing camera without a flash, similar to the Lumia 520. The main difference would probably be its RAM which has since been doubled to 1GB. It will be powered by a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor and will feature swappable covers like previous Lumia models.
