Images of Nokia Lumia 525 leak

A couple of weeks ago, rumors first hit the Internet about yet another unannounced smartphone from Nokia, the Lumia 525. Now new images that allegedly show the phone itself have made their way to the Internet, thanks to the Chinese certification agency TENAA posting up photos of the device on its website.

While the site has since removed the images, Liveside.net managed to pull down the renders of the Windows Phone. The images show that the smartphone seems to be very similar in looks to the Lumia 520, the budget priced phone that was recently named as the best selling Windows-based hardware product.

It's more than possible that the Lumia 525 is the successor to the 520 and if that's the case, it could be a huge release for both Nokia and Microsoft when it comes out. Rumors claim the 525 will have a focus on music and will contain a dual-core Qualcomm processor with 1GB of RAM. compared to the 520's 512MB of memory.

The big question? When will the Lumia 525 launch and how much will it cost? NokiaPowerUser.com says it's possible that Nokia will hold yet another press event at the end of November or the early part of December. If that happens, we might get confirmation on the 525 as well as the Lumia 929, the 5-inch smartphone that's rumored to be sold by Verizon Wireless.

Well, at least the iPhone isn't crap stuff that needs to be cheap in order to sell like hot cakes. Apple is revolutionary but Nokia isn't. That's the point.

You mean like the cheap model iPhone 5c, so revolutionary it comes in a raft of colours after multiple OEMs decided to make that move on WP handsets.

I had a Windows phone before but then I moved to Android... because Honestly WP is a baby OS really. Nokia makes a lot of phones all following the same pattern, it's all the same... same thing... no innovation at all...

I'm guessing Apple Insider disagrees...?!

Revolution's been over for years.... :-/


A few U.S store selling it cheap won't corroborate your flawed assumption. You're clearly not seeing the whole picture here, without Apple you wouldn't even be using those cheap nonsensical WP devices let alone have such technologies readily accessible. Apple redefined the smartphone, others just followed as usual. Steve Jobs was a true innovator but what did your Microsoft Trojan Horse Elop actually do to benefit Nokia? He just wrecked it inside out, set it on fire, killed Symbian, fired his beloved dedicated employed and halted the development MeeGo while promoting the MS propaganda. Well perhaps that was the Elop 'Revolution'.. In the opposite direction.

1. Keep the price point low.
2. Upgrade the screen and CPU.
3. ???
4. Profit!

520's upgrade desperately needs a (even **** quality) front camera and a flash in the back.

Screen/CPU is just fine for WP8.

I think you need to have a look at the 620. The 520 is for those that need the minimum at a low-low price. If you want a few bells like front facing camera and are willing to pay a little more then the 620 is for you.

Don't tell me which phone is for me (I have 5/6/9/1020).

When most people are buying 520 and it is creating a bad impression at times due to lack of fcam/flash, Nokia should work on that. Just put SOMETHING no matter the quality. Supports 3G but you have to stand in front of mirror to video call?

^this. And a flash. It the improvement is just with the CPU and RAM, then this can be safely skipped. Especially with an OS such as Windows Phone where 512MB is just as good as 1GB in most cases.

WP8 is fast as it is on 520. Front Camera and a flash for $149 would have been an amazing deal out competing with low end Android phones

If they don't add that then I won't buy a 525. 620 has been out almost a year. You think they'd want more people to buy a phone they're releasing now or a phone they're not even manufacturing anymore?

Nokia need to stop adding so many different numbers to the Lumia. It's getting crazy now! High, medium and low end Lumia each year!

With 512 mb ram, its sluggish at times and applications resumes slow. 1 GB ram is a better idea. Moreover storage space should be increased a little. What u all say?

BS to the sluggish point. WP is never sluggish. Ever. Application resuming takes a second or two which I can live with. And if you want more storage, there's an SD card slot. Use it.

At least in the case of Apple or Samsung, you can tell which phone is which and its specs by their names. Here You can't even tell what the heck is all this :
520 to 820 similar design.
920 different.
925 different.
928 different.
1020 different.
1520 probably similar to 920.
Dunno about 1320.

I do. I have a Lumia 820 and my mom and sister use a 520. And they're nothing alike.

And what's with copy pasting Crimson Rain's earlier post? With your terrible grammar and punctuation, I completely missed the point you were trying to make.

really Do you have Lumia?

Yes, I have a 920. And no the 520 to 820 don't have a similar design…
