We’ve seen successors for the popular Lumia 920 and 520 in the form of the 925 and recently launched 525, but it looks like the 720 may also receive some love (there were way too many numbers in that sentence for non-Nokia lovers to appreciate). The guys over at This Is Nokia (I imagine this to be the Sparta of the Nokia community?) received an anonymous tip laying out the specs for the upcoming Lumia 725.
- 4.7 Inch Screen
- 720p HD Display
- Clearblack Display Tech
- Rich Recording
- 8.1MP Camera with f1.9 Aperture
- Quad Core Snapdragon 400
- The battery capacity still unknown but the tipster said its around 2300 mAh
- Improved design
- Same front camera as its predecessor the Lumia 720
- Wireless Charging (via cover)
- Might comes with Dual Sim Support
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB/16GB Internal Memory
- Lumia Black/Windows Phone Update 3 Pre Installed
- Gorilla Glass Screen Protection
- Price $299 before tax and subsidies
Word of caution: you must take this with a grain of salt, as I’ve seen plenty of predictions about a supposed Lumia 725 and none of them seem to carry over to the next. It would be a bit surprising to see this mid-range device jump from the WVGA resolution of its predecessor to an HD display, since no Lumia below the 920 has seen anything above WVGA including the 4.7-inch Lumia 625. But who knows, maybe Nokia’s looking to bump up its mid-range specs to further compete with Android.
On the other hand, with the recently launched Lumia 525 giving the 520 a sizable RAM upgrade, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this alleged device follow suit, given the popularity of the 720’s design and camera. But so far there have been really no leaks of this device, and much talk of a 720 successor has been nothing more than speculation. Nonetheless, it would be a nice surprise to see it pop up at the next MWC. Until then, we’ll file this one as just a rumor.
