Nokia India announced its Lumia 1320 and Lumia 525 smartphones on Tuesday with the aim of making innovate smartphones “more affordable”. While the Lumia 1320 boasts of new features such as Nokia Storyteller and a super sensitive 6-inch touchscreen, the Lumia 525 hopes to build on the success of its predecessor Lumia 520.
Nokia India is aggressively pushing both the phones with offers of free games and more space on its Skydrive.
Key features of the Nokia Lumia 1320
Screen: The phone’s six-inch, 720p supersensitive screen allows users to do more even with gloves on and is faster. The larger screen paves the way for a third column of tiles on the home screen. On standby, the screen shows notifications for missed calls and new emails.
Nokia Storyteller: This feature integrates images with location information into a chronological picture journey on a map, allowing users to easily share their visual stories. The feature becomes available from late January.
Apps: While the 1320 has the best of Lumia smartphone apps, such as unlimited and ad-free music on the Nokia Mix Radio, Nokia India makes it a sweet deal by offering a complimentary three-month subscription of Vimeo Pro.
Bottomline: The 1320 will retail at Rs 23,999 from January 13 onwards. It will be available in orange, yellow, white, and black.
