The Windows Phone platform has seen some pretty significant growth around the world this year, with market share rising to 10% and beyond in some regions. A major component of this growth has been Nokia"s Lumia 520, its entry-level Windows Phone which can be purchased without a contract for as little as $99.
Recent leaks have revealed the existence of the Lumia 525, a follow-up to the hugely successful 520. Today, further leaks have revealed the clearest image so far of the 525, along with what appears to be a full list of specs for the device.
The image above comes via regular leaker, evleaks, and shows the new handset in three colours: orange, white and yellow. It is unclear whether further colour options will also be made available.
The spec sheet was leaked on China"s Baidu, in a post which also included the second render shown above, and points to a solid set of upgrades for the budget-focused device:
