Nokia has launched the Nokia Lumia 1320 as the 720 HD budget alternative to the newly announced Nokia Lumia 1520.
The Lumia 1320 offers similar specs to the Lumia 1520 but at a more affordable price point.
Officially announced at the Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi on October 22, the Nokia Lumia 1320 is the second 6-inch Windows Phone 8 device to launch today.
“Now more than ever, mobile devices are at the centre of consumers’ lives as they look to capture, curate and share experiences on the go”, said Stephen Elop, Executive Vice President of Devices and Services at Nokia. “With our latest range of Lumia and Asha products, we’re delivering industry leading design and imaging innovation to bigger devices at more accessible prices.”
Nokia Lumia 1320 Features
The Nokia Lumia 1320 has a 6-inch 720p HD resolution screen with a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM.
Unlike the Lumia 1520 with a 20-megapixel PureView camera, it only has a 5-megapixel camera in order to keep the price tag low. It also has a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.
However, it does come with 8GB of internal storage and all the applications present on the Lumia 1520, including Storyteller. This is Nokia’s new app that combines photo books and Here Maps.
There’s 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage available to anyone purchasing the Lumia 1320 too and you’ll benefit from the microSD card expansion slot that supports cards up to 64GB.
The Lumia 1320 is powered by a 3,400mAh battery and measures up at 9.79mm thick and 220g in weight.
Nokia Lumia 1320 Release Date and Price
The Nokia Lumia 1320 will be available in orange, yellow, black and white and will cost around $339 (£210) SIM-free. Exact UK pricing and release hasn’t been announced, but expect it to arrive sometime early 2014.
