South Africans will soon be able to get their hands on Nokia’s new Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 520 and Lumia 720. Blending style and innovation for the socially active crowd, the Nokia Lumia 720 features a high-end camera and Nokia’s latest music and navigation technology, while the affordable Nokia Lumia 520 is a fun and colourful addition to the Nokia Lumia family.

Both devices offer many of the same digital camera lenses as the flagship Lumia 920, as well as maps and navigation from HERE; free music streaming; and super sensitive touchscreens for a highly immersive smartphone experience.

Combining exclusive Carl Zeiss optics with Nokia’s largest f1.9 aperture, the Nokia Lumia 720 delivers sharp, clear pictures in both daytime or nighttime conditions.

Its HD-quality 1,3 megapixel wide-angle lens brings Nokia’s best front facing camera performance, and is perfect for taking group portraits with friends or making video calls with Skype. With powerful hardware and Nokia digital camera lenses, including Cinemagraph, Smart Shoot and Glam Me, the Nokia Lumia 720 makes it easy to capture and share stunning pictures.

With a highly responsive, curved 4,3-inch Clear Black Display, the Nokia Lumia 720 boasts a super sensitive touchscreen with wider viewing angles, and enhanced clarity in bright conditions thanks to software enhancements. An optional wireless charging shell is also available.

Both the Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520 come with the HERE suite of applications, including HERE Maps and HERE Drive for free turn-by-turn navigation. Nokia Music offers unlimited music streaming, free of adverts or subscription charges, and also includes the ability to download playlists to listen to offline.

The 8Gb mass memory and expandable 64Gb memory slot of both the Lumia 520 and 720 allow users to store even more content.

Both devices will be available locally in white, black and red, and are expected to start sales in May. The recommended retail price for the Nokia Lumia 520 is R 1 899.00, and R5 699.00 for the Lumia 720.
