It provides imaging technology found in the Lumia 1020, which has a 41 megapixel camera and is due for release in the coming weeks. These include integrated camera applications like Nokia Smart Camera, which enables the removal of unwanted objects from pictures.
Other features include 8GB of internal memory that can be expanded by a further 64GB with a microSD card, 7GB of online SkyDrive storage and five changeable back covers that come boxed with the smartphone.
Nokia UK and Ireland vice president Conor Pierce said: “The Nokia Lumia 625 is a fantastic blend of affordability and performance. In short, it’s the product that the UK 4G market has been waiting for.”
Carphone Warehouse UK CEO Graham Sttapleton added: “As 4G accelerates across networks in the UK, we expect the service to become available to more consumers at different price points. At Carphone Warehouse we are aiming to offer the broadest range of 4G devices.
“Nokia is leading the 4G device portfolio already with a number of innovative middle and high end devices. This will be the most affordable 4G smartphone in our range at launch.”
