Nokia today expanded its Lumia range with the launch of Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 at the Mobile World Congress here, upping its ante against global rivals – Apple and Samsung – in the smartphone category.
Lumia 520 will be Nokia's most affordable Windows 8 smartphone, with the same digital camera lenses on Lumia 920. It will be priced 139 euros onwards.
It will be available in Q1 in Hong Kong and Vietnam and in markets in Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa in Q2.
The Finnish company also unveiled four new devices, including its cheapest phone at 15 euro (around Rs 1,100), and sought to strengthen the smartphone portfolio in an attempt to regain the ground it has lost to global rivals Samsung and Apple.
Nokia 105, the company's "most affordable phone to date" at 15 euro, is designed for first-time buyers to woo them with colour screen, FM radio and dust and splash-proof keypad.
In India, Nokia's lowest priced device is available at about Rs 1,250.
