Unveiled in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Nokia Lumia 720 is a midrange smartphone which Nokia claims has the best camera in its class. It features a 6.7 megapixel rear camera with a Car Zeiss lens and an f/1.9 aperture to take in all that light for your party snaps.
The device also has a 4.3inch ‘Clear Black display’ with a 480×800 resolution, a 1GHz dual-core S4 processor, 512mb of ram, 8GB of internal memory and a microSD slot to expand that.
The device also has a bunch of colourful snap-on covers available which don’t just make it look good but also give the 720 wireless charging capabilities to pump more juice into that 2000mAh battery. It also comes with Nokia’s full suite of exclusive apps, Drive, Transit, Maps and Music.
Nokia Australia’s managing director, Steve Lewis said that the 720 is “critical” to Nokia’s strategy and allows Nokia to “bring familiar features such as high-end design, quality hardware, unparalleled imaging capabilities and a rich navigation experience to a wider audience.”
Both Vodafone and Virgin Mobile will stock the device for $429 outright with Virgin selling it from this Thursday, April 4 and Vodafone “Will announce availability in the coming weeks”. Select other retailers will also be selling the device from April 10.
