Nokia’s Lumia 525 didn’t make an appearance at Nokia World, but from all the recent appearances it’s been making, it’s sure been looking like the smartphone is just about ready to go official. Yesterday we checked out some shots of the phone as it got its TENAA certification, and today we have a couple press renders to look at, giving us our best view of the handset to date.
Up top we see the 525 in orange, white, and yellow – a nice fall array of colors, and precisely those we previously heard would be available for the phone. And below, you’ll see another render from a different source, giving us a solid head-on look at the phone in orange (though that clock is seriously messed-up, making us suspect this one is fake). Overall, it’s almost exactly what we’ve been expecting, though we wonder if this is some kind of early render, due the absence of a visible Nokia logo around back.
Internally, the biggest difference between the 520 and the 525 is expected to be the latter seeing double the RAM, moving up to a full gigabyte. We’ve also heard the possibility that the SoC could switch from the S4 Plus in the 520 to a Snapdragon 400, like in the Lumia 625. If Nokia delivers even modest updates while keeping the price low, the 525 might just be another big hit.
