Nokia made the Lumia 920 its top of the line Windows Phone 8 smartphone and choose the Lumia 820 as its midrange last fall. Nokia today announced the Lumia 720 as a phone that's not quite the 920 but has very good midrange specs.

The Nokia Lumia 720 has a 4.3-inch IPS display with ClearBlack for improved colors, Sunlight readability for clearer visibility outdoors, Corning Gorilla Glass to reduce damage to the screen, and increased sensitivity so the screen can be used if someone wears gloves. The Lumia 720 has a WVGA resolution (800x480) and pixel density of 217ppi. The Windows Phone 8 handset has a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that supports up to 64GB.

Other Lumia 920 hallmarks like NFC sharing and wireless charging are also present, but the Lumia 720 lacks other features that would put it on par with Nokia's leader. The Lumia 720 has no LTE support, instead working with GSM, WCDMA, and HSPA+ 21 Mbps. The phone has Bluetooth 3.0 and a 2,000 mAh integrated battery. Camera specs include a rear 6.7 megapixel camera with auto-focus, f/1.9 aperture, 1/3.6-inch sensor size, Carl Zeiss optics, and LED flash. The front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera has f/2.4 aperture and a wide-angle lens.

Nokia says that the Lumia 720 will be available in Europe first in March and then China later this year. The 127.9mm x 67.5mm x 9mm (5.1in x 2.66in x 0.35in) Lumia 720 will cost EUR 249 before VAT and will come in red, yellow, cyan, and black.
