Nokia Lumia 610 Smartphone Price in the Philippines, Features, and Other Info: Lumia 610 from Nokia is the most inexpensive Windows phone in the market to date. Nokia has successfully imbued the smartphone with the Windows operating system in a lowered specs requirement that would otherwise not cater for such feature. The update that is still considered part of Windows Phone version 7.5 or Mango, opens its door to devices that only has as little as 256MB worth of RAM.
Despite of it being a low-ender, the Nokia Lumia 610 still aims to offer the same smooth Windows Phone experience and presents all designated Windows phone feature. Another part of the update is that it would bring compatibility to Chinese mobile operators and thus offer more regional availability to the model than the standard build. Thus, the Lumia 610 may be the first Windows Phone experience for those regions that don’t have the OS yet.
Design-wise, the Lumia 610 is a curvy, candybar shaped smartphone. Nokia describes it as having a “confident feel.” It’s 119 x 62 x 12 mm dimension, which is average at best, is outlined by a metallic chrome edging, the color scheme of which is offered at black, grey, red and blue. It weighs approximately 132 grams, which is again pretty average for a smartphone. The chassis is made of an inexpensive plastic, with a soft-touch back – hardly unexpected for a budget phone – but nonetheless offers a firm grip.
There are the three usual Windows capacitive keys on the bottom of the Lumia 610 for back, home screen, and search. The Nokia branding is quite vividly displayed on the top end, while at the bottom there is a just-barely-visible rectangular hole for the microphone. On the right side are the volume rocker, and a lock key. The left and bottom sides are bare, while the top side contains the standard 3.5 mm jack as well as a microUSB port.
The display of the Nokia Lumia 610 is, again, not very special to talk about. It has a 3.7-inch capacitive, multi-touch screen that is WVGA TFT in nature. The screen has a resolution of 400 x 800 pixels and offers display that is actually pretty good for a smartphone within its price category. The display has an approximate density of 252 pixels per inch. In addition, it offers all the usual sensors like light sensor and proximity sensor. The display is also quite thoughtfully covered in a scratch resistant glass.
At the back of the Nokia Lumia 610 is an average-sized 5 MP camera with LED flash. The camcorder mode can shoot videos as high as 1280 x 720 or 720 p in HD format at 30 frames per second. The camera offers auto focus, image stabilization, video stabilization, face detection, white balance, geo-tagging, panorama, scenes, and frames manipulation. It also offers continuous autofocus on video mode.
As mentioned, the Nokia Lumia 610 pretty much runs on a humble set of hardware. It has a single core 800 MHz Snapdragon S1 central processing unit and contains a separate graphics processor. It runs on 256 MB worth of RAM as mentioned, and an internal memory of 8 GB. Its overall performance is on par with the intended price range.
Connectivity-wise, the Nokia Lumia 610 connects using quad-band GSM / EDGE / WCDMA. Data transfer rates are at 5.72 Mbits/s on HSDPA and 5.76 Mbits/s on HSUPA. It also has A-GPS with cell identification and Wi-Fi positioning. Other navigation features include Points of Interest (POI), turn-by-turn navigation, and voice navigation. It has Bluetooth v 2.1 connection with EDR, Wi-Fi connectivity at 802.11 b/g/n, as well as a USB port for charging and syncing with computer sync and OTA sync.
The Nokia Lumia 610 was announced at the Mobile World Congress on February 27, and is set to be released on the second quarter of this year with a price of around $255.
