Nokia Lumia 625 may be largest Lumia to date

The just-announced Nokia Lumia 1020, what with its 41-megapixel PureView camera, has easily been the company’s most-rumored smartphone in a long while. That said, it hasn’t been the sole focus of Nokia rumors so far this year, and on more than one occasion we’ve heard talk of Nokia’s work towards a phablet-sized Windows Phone device. So far, though, there hasn’t been much in the way of evidence to back up those claims. Today may mark that starting to change, with the arrival of some imagery that – while falling short of what we’d call a “phablet” itself – does show Nokia pushing itself towards larger and larger handsets.

The Nokia Lumia 625 looks like it could be the company’s first Windows Phone model with a screen size north of 4.5 inches, with a 4.7-inch WVGA display.

Despite the large (for Nokia) display, the 625 will reportedly be a quite affordable handset, launching in China for what works out to about $325. That budget nature is reflected in some other 625 specs, like having only 512MB of RAM. The phone should run a 1.2GHz dual-core S4 and have a five-megapixel main camera – don’t count on any fancy optical stabilization here, though.

While so far this looks like an Asia-focused model, there’s still the chance we could see Nokia make it available elsewhere. It also remains to be seen if any more of the other rumored X25 Lumias will soon be surfacing.
