It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here for all Nokia PH fans. After several months of waiting, the Nokia Lumia 620 and Nokia Lumia 820 has officially landed in the Philippines. For those who are looking into switching to Windows Phone 8, this is it! Check out more details after the break.
The Nokia Lumia 620 is currently the cheapest baby in the Lumia WP8 line-up. However, the smartphone might lose this title as the Lumia 520, together with Lumia 720, are said to be gearing up for an announcement this month at MWC.
For starters, the Lumia 620 is a handset with a 3.8-inch with WVGA (480×800) resolution and Nokia’s ClearBlack technology. It is powered by a mighty enough 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 512MB of RAM, and an 8GB storage which is expandable through a microSD card.

These two phones are great treats from Nokia Philippines but I honestly think that they should’ve included the Lumia 920 to fully maximize their potential. It already has a huge fan base (in forums) here in the Philippines and many of them actually want the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone from Nokia. Don’t get me wrong, the Lumia 620 and Lumia 820 are solid devices in their own right, but the 920 is just that better. I know that other countries were prioritized but if they really want to catch up in the race, they should move quicker than this.
Nokia Lumia 620 is now available in the Philippines for a price of Php11,600 while the Nokia Lumia 820 will set you back Php18,990. Will you make the switch to Lumia?
