Nokia Lumia 525 specs leak pointing at small improvements

A full array of Nokia Lumia 525 specs have leaked online, with the mooted handset looking set to be a minor upgrade on the existing Nokia Lumia 520.

With the Nokia Lumia 520 having become the most popular Windows Phone handset to date, a successor looks a certainty, with latest Nokia Lumia 525 specs suggesting the follow-on will not feature any radical changes of the tested model.

According to a range of Nokia Lumia 525 specs leaked courtesy of Chinese site Baidu, the only hardware difference between the two devices will be a jump from 512MB of RAM to a new 1GB offering.

Set to be powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, the leaked Nokia Lumia 525 specs have hinted at the Windows Phone 8 OS lining up alongside a 4-inch IPS display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution.

Although we suggest the leaked Nokia Lumia 525 specs be taken with a pinch of salt, latest reports have suggested the remodelled innards will be slotted inside a body identical to that of its predecessor. The Chinese sources have hinted the phone will line up at 9.9mm thick and 124g in weight.

Although having become the subject of multiple leaks and rumours, it is not expected that the Nokia Lumia 525 will launch before the year’s end.

Nokia last month announced a range of new products set for a 2014 launch, with the 6-inch Nokia Lumia 1520 and the company’s first tablet, the Nokia Lumia 2520, formally unveiled as part of the company’s Nokia World conference in Abu Dhabi.
