future. These smartphones are dubbed Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 and are
expected to see the light of the day at the forthcoming Mobile World
Congress (MWC) 2013.
Nokianesia via postel.go.id has reported that
Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 have recently passed certification from
Directorate Post & Telecommunication Indonesia, which is an
equivalent of FCC in Indonesia. Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 are being touted
as the successors of Nokia Lumia 710 and Lumia 510 respectively.
Nokia Blog has been tipped by an anonymous tipster that The Lumia 720,
which is codenamed Zeal will have 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, 1GHz
dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage. It is
also likely to have 6-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front
