Nokia and TELUS today announced that the Nokia Lumia 620 is now available to TELUS customers. TELUS is the first North American carrier to offer this Windows Phone 8 smartphone. The Nokia Lumia 620 offers a fun, youthful appeal and compact design. With seven different exchangeable shells to choose from, Canadians can adapt the look of their Nokia Lumia 620 to their personal taste and style. At TELUS, the smartphone will come in black with a bonus white exchangeable shell.
The Nokia Lumia 620 brings all the features and qualities found in a premium device at an affordable price. It packs a punch with the 1 GHz dual-core SnapDragon S4 processor, making it possible to multi-task, stream in HD and share content at super-fast speeds. The 3.8-inch ClearBlack display has sunlight readability enhancements so users are able to see what is on the screen no matter how sunny their surroundings.
The smartphone also features an exclusive camera lens that transforms the creative power of the 620’s five-megapixel main camera and VGA front-facing camera. The Cinemagraph lens adds simple animations to still photographs, while Smart Shoot creates a single, perfect shot from multiple images, even removing unwanted objects from the picture. What’s more, the Nokia Lumia 620 uses a new “dual-shot” colour technique to deliver a variety of striking colour and texture effects. Dual-shot adds a second layer of coloured, transparent or translucent polycarbonate on top of a base layer to produce secondary colour blends and depth effects.
First to Launch Compact, Affordable Smartphone in North America
“With its innovative design, the latest Windows Phone 8 software and signature experiences from Nokia, like Nokia Maps, the Nokia Lumia 620 is a highly competitive smartphone at this price point,” said Matt Rothschild, head of Retails and Sales Operations, Americas, Nokia.
