The Big thing Nokia promised isn't actually that big. Though it's not the 6-inch behemoth rumored previously, the Nokia Lumia 625 debuted today as a Windows Phone 8 device with a 4.7-inch display and the Nokia Lumia Amber update
The Nokia Lumia 625 has a 4.7-inch LCD screen with a paltry 800x480 resolution, so the quality will be noticeably subpar to its predecessors. Introducing a bigger screen but reducing the resolution leads to much lower pixel density than other Lumias, but the Lumia 625 maintains screen enhancements for brightness, viewing outside, and increased sensitivity for using with gloves.
Midrange customers are the target market for the Lumia 625. The phone has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD slot supporting up to 64 GB. A 5 megapixel camera is on the rear of the device and a VGA front-facing camera supports video calling. A 2,000 mAh battery powers the Lumia 625, which also has an FM radio and Dolby Surround headphone audio,
Nokia plans to offer the Lumia 625 in orange, bright green, yellow, white, and black. Depending on the market, the phone will support WCDMA, HSPA+, or LTE connections. The Lumia 625 will cost 220 euros (US $290) when it goes on sale at some point between July and September.source: Nokia
