Details Leak on Nokia’s Big-Screen Lumia 625 Ahead of Launch

Specifications have leaked for yet another new Windows Phone from Nokia, this one the large-screen Lumia 625.

The 4.7-inch device packs a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor and a five-megapixel camera, according to a data sheet posted by Finnish tech site Puhelinvertailu. (The site also nabbed the Lumia 1020 data sheet ahead of that device’s formal announcement.)

Despite its big screen, its otherwise midrange specs and 600-series name suggest that Nokia is aiming at the lower mainstream, rather than the high end of the smartphone market.

The device is likely to be introduced on Tuesday, as Nokia teased on Monday that “something big is coming” and will be unveiled at 9 am London time (1 am PT) on Tuesday.
