Nokia Lumia 720 now available in the UK

The Nokia Lumia 720 is now available to buy in a number of territories around the world, including the UK.

Nokia’s latest effort is the fifth Lumia to run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 OS, and it sits right in the middle of the range.

Nokia Lumia 720 Features
The Nokia Lumia 720 offers a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 display, rather like the Nokia Lumia 900 before it. However, the Nokia Lumia 720’s display works even when you have gloves on, which is a feature it shares with the likes of the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820.

Powering the Nokia Lumia 720 is a 1GHz dual-core CPU backed by 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. This is expandable by up to 64GB thanks to its microSD card slot.

The Lumia 720 also features a 6.7-megapixel rear camera, which sports a very similar image sensor to the flagship Nokia Lumia 920. It also has an extraordinarily wide f/1.9 aperture lens for quicker shots and superior low light performance.

Nokia Lumia 720 Pricing
Prices for the Nokia Lumia 720 start from £299.99 on Pay As You Go over at O2. Online retailed Clove is also offering the phone for that price, though a note on the website says that it’s not expecting stock until April 8.

If you’re after the Nokia Lumia 720 on contract, O2 is offering it for free on a £22 a month two year package. This gives you 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of mobile network data.
