Supposed Nokia Lumia 520 and 720 images leak

A few weeks ago, two unannounced Nokia Lumia smartphones were listed from a source in Indonesia. Now there's more concrete evidence of the existence of these phones, thanks to the well know Twitter user who goes by the handle evleaks.

The first post shows what looks like a press kit image, with the phone being identified by evleaks as the new Nokia Lumia 520. This would appear to be a mid range Windows Phone 8 device: WPCentral claims that the Lumia 520 will have a four inch screen, a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

The second tweet from evleaks shows what could be the new Nokia Lumia 720. This model looks like it might be more of a higher-end product with WPCentral claiming it has a 4.3 ClearBlack display, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, a 6-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera.

With the Mobile World Congress trade show due to begin on Monday in Barcelona, Spain, we will likely see Nokia officially announce the existence of both new Lumia smartphones at that time.

^ Yeah except it just has 512mb ram. I wish it had 1Gb. It would be better than 820 then plus has a better front facing camera too.

As said before, the 820/920 have to much specs for WP to handle, the phone never gets maxxed out.
Only 1 little game seems to max out the CPU and my RAM has probably never seen more then half of it used.(and I'm positive the CPU maxing is due to poor coding and not lack of resources/performance)

predecessor to successor

Nokia Lumia 900 to Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia Lumia 800 to Nokia Lumia 820
Nokia Lumia 710 to Nokia Lumia 720
Nokia Lumia 610 to Nokia Lumia 620
Nokia Lumia 510 to Nokia Lumia 520

I don't see what the confusion are about.

Not to be ignorant, but if any of these phones are more than $99 that's kind of silly considering my iPhone 4S was that much and it beats these phones.

$99 FOR AN OUTRIGHT SMART PHONE????

$99 on contract is a lot different than $99 off contract, or even $250 off contract. It means that as a developer I can get a development phone for $250 as opposed to $3000 or so.

You did not get an iPhone 4S for $99. The iPhone 4S probably costs 6 times that. You got it subsidized by your carrier.

For the price of this phone, it could be free with a contract and save the carriers a significant amount of money.

You know you can buy it and make it open source, if that bothers you.

Just a pity that it runs closed source Windows OS

that's how I feel when I see every single android phone.. and they all look the same to me.. atleast the Lumia line has a distinct look to it..

Might want to rephrase that a bit. You might feel that way when you look at a specific manufacturer and their line of Android phones, but you just said you think that every single Android phone looks alike.....Lol what? It's not abnormal for a manufacturer to stick to a specific look that differentiates them from others. Nokia is distinct from other phones, just as Samsung is distinct form other phones and LG and Sony and HTC (I LOL'd as I typed this since HTC feels it needed to look like Nokia's phones so recently)....

In the end, I find the Lumia line to be hideous. No thanks. I don't mind the colors so much, but the overall design makes them look like a Fisher Price toy.

Not really what I meant. Having them all look a like isnt a bad thing. One design inst a bad thing. Works for Apple. Was just boring news to me is all.

This isn't Android. You need GB's for it to run well.

Of course, but it's still the same amount as the previous-gen lumia 710 and the same as the lowest-end 520 and 620. On comparison when the Lumia 710 came out it had the same ram as the highest-end 800/900/910.

Again it doesn't matter as long as it's WP. 512mb is more than enough. in my Lumia 920, I never crossed the usage 300mb even after running so many apps and games in parallel

I know of an app that crashes if you do something to it, because it runs of memory on 512mb devices. But you have to parse a 2mb TEXT file, turn each new line into a user control, and then only after having something like 500 text controls on the screen at once does it crash.

Really, 512mb is more than enough for WP.

I wouldn't really take free ram as an indicator of how much future-proof the phone will be. The iPhones too had plenty of free RAM at first, yet suddenly, as soon as the real RAM-intensive applications like the video editor, SIRI or 3d maps came out the previous models were quickly left behind. If the 720 has the same amount of RAM as the lowest end model (520) I don't really think it would be all that excessive to be concerned that it could be treated as belonging to the same league.

So the specs:

Nokia Lumia 520: 1.0 GHz dual-core Krait + 512 MB RAM

Nokia Lumia 620: 1.0 GHz dual-core Krait + 512 MB RAM

Nokia Lumia 720: 1.0 GHz dual-core Krait + 512 MB RAM

Nokia Lumia 820: 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait + 1 GB RAM

Nokia Lumia 920: 1.5 GHz dual-core Krait + 1 GB RAM

There is rumor Nokia RX-108 is tablet reveal at MWC on Monday?

I don't know if it will be shown, I think ive read somewhere that they delayed plans.

So who knows really, maybe its just going to be a suprise

I hope Nokia isn't turning into HTC, confusing customers by releasing a new phone every 20 minutes.

I don't think so, some models only get released in specific markets, different carriers and so on. I think that as long as they spread them out enough it'll be fine.

Different models for different markets, carriers exclusivities... not the best to verticalize productions costs....
Besides I personally hate carriers exclusivities: release a great, compelling products and carriers will knock at your door begging to have it.

That's what HTC was doing in the first place, expect everyone was screaming "OMG not another HTC!". Reading comprehension fail as always

Nice!! Can't wait to see the price tags because these things look like awesome additions to the Lumia family

If these are low-end and are this thin (and good-looking)
I CANNOT wait for the EOS or 920 refresh.
