The Nokia Lumia 720 Makes Its way Through FCC Approvals
The Nokia Lumia 720 gets ready for its American debut! In the last few weeks a few Nokia devices have been appearing, and then re-appearing in the news. Most recently the Lumia 520 and 720 got some price points and launch windows for the UK, but the question still remained, when will one of these awesome budget minded Lumia’s make it stateside? While most assumed the handsets would make an appearance on the likes of America’s carriers, it looks like a bit of in direct confirmation has turned up in the form of FCC filings.
When any electronics devices makes its way through the lonely dark halls of the FCC it is setting itself up for approval to be sold as a consumer product in retail locations across the country. The last we heard of the Lumia 720 it was slowly making its way around the world and was assumed to make its way stateside one way or the other. Today, this filing with the fed’s confirms such assumptions. While this process does not confirm the 720’s potential for any carrier, it will be available for sale and operation where available. According to the details however the handset can connect via 850/1900 MHz, which means it would be directly compatible with At&t’s 3G network, unfortunately however, as expected the Lumia 720 does not have LTE connectivity. Without LTE or even a carrier, what can you expect from the Lumia 720? The device starts with a 4.3 IPS Clearblack LCD that offers up a 480×800 pixel resolution at 217 pixels per inch and is built atop a 2000 mAh battery. Internally the Lumia 720 will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 system chip that uses a dual core 1 GHz Krait processor, an Adreno 305 GPU, 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage. Additional storage options are possibly via microSD up to 64 GB. The 720 will also come with a 6.7 mega pixel Carl Zeiss camera, with LED flash, 720p HD video recording as well as a front facing shooter that clocks a 1.3 mega pixel sensor. You can also expect GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, micro USB and NFC connectivity! No stateside pricing has been unveiled, so only time will tell.
