The leaked news of Nokia Lumia 625 turned out to be true. The 4.7-inch-screened Windows Phone will be released to O2, Vodafone, Phones4U, EE, and Carphone Warehouse early in September for £200 in the UK. Continental Europeans will get it for 220 Euros. It joins a growing series that saw Lumia 620 launched earlier in the year.

Lumia 625 has retained the resolution of its predecessor of 800 x 480 but the processing power has been bumped up to dual-core Snapdragon S4. Even though it has a hulking LCD screen, its 0.36 inches (9.15mm) make it much thinner than Lumia 920. The camera is a 5-megapixel module featuring Lumia 925's Smart Camera app and the animated gif-making Cinemagraph. The storage is average with 8GB of internal memory, and behind the removable back is a microSD slot.

Being a Nokia smartphone, Lumia 625 comes with plenty of HSPA radio gadgetry, as well as LTE. The customization options include green, black, orange, and yellow cases, though Lumia 620's turquoise shade is missing.
