Several Nokia Lumia 625 press shots leak

Nokia is expected to announce the 4.7-inch Lumia 625 tomorrow, a low-cost device that features the company's largest smartphone screen size yet. In advance of the announcement, several press photos have leaked, showing the smartphone's many colors.

Reputable technology tipster @evleaks posted multiple images of the smartphone on Twitter, showcasing the device's range of colors and its curved-glass display. The photos reveal five colors the phone will come in – white, black, red, yellow and green. No additional information was revealed by @evleaks, though one of the images, seen above, seems to indicate Nokia will keep one of its custom camera apps on the phone despite its low-end price.

Nokia has scheduled a U.K. press event for 9 a.m. local time Tuesday, when the phone is expected to be formally revealed. Recently leaked details of the phone indicate it will have a 800x480 resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera. Earlier information pegs the phone's price at about $325; it's expected to launch in China before the end of the month.

I don't understand the deal with having 512MB of RAM - just make 1GB!

Just letting you know all people, My Lumia 920 has appx 830Mb usable RAM.
Out of it, the peak amount of RAM utilized so far is 133Mb
Average utilization is far below 100Mb.

Simple, WP doesn't need 10Gb RAM, 8 cores to run a smartphone like Android

good to know, i always wondered how many ram wp8 needed.

android indeed needs allot of resources to work with.
My galaxy s (custom rom android 4.2 ) leaves me with 150 mb ram to work with after clean install (512 mb ram in total) it uses more ram the a clean 32 bit win8 install on 1gb ram (270 mb ram used then) and i always have ram shortages.
The cpu is to slow for android 4.2 in general but that can be expected from a single core cpu , i bet that wp8 could run fine on it (if the cpu would have been supported)

So my next phone will be running on wp8, i will wait on the quad core models coming later this year.

the lumia 625 will be nice for for people who want a big screen and good build quality together with a nice look (unlike alot of the android phones) for a low price

wow! Then what is causing the slowdowns on my Lumia 720? I don't understand why some apps resume instantly and other take their own sweet time. I always thought it had something to do with the 512mb of ram.

This is purely because App Developers didn't understand/follow Life-cycle of WP8 App. The best example I can give is "Whatsapp". Just 3-weeks back, it was the worst app that's running n WP8 with poor coding. So whenever you resume back to app, it just loads from the start since it failed to fast resume (a feature of App Life-cycle). After their recent updates, now it works like charm. Now who's fault is that

but even the 'fast resume' throws up a "resuming" screen sometimes, and the unpredictable experience is frustrating. Still love windows phone though!

Will they ever bother releasing an official cover for it rather than just those retarded colored replaceable shells? The aftermarket 520/620 covers are complete trash

How long until we get to "good enough" with smartphone power? Are we almost there? Certainly, I think that's one issue PCs have! You can get "good enough" at a very low price, and for even less you can get a far more portable tablet (for the average consumer, that is, not enthusiasts or gamers).
