Alike its elder siblings Lumia 820 and 920, the Lumia 620 will also have Nokia’s favourite camera specialties such as City Lens, the augmented-reality layer and Cinemagraph, Nokia Maps and Music apps which are aimed to help Nokia distinguish it’s devices from those of other manufacturers using the same Windows Phone operating system. This Nokia Lumia 620 with the cheapest Windows Phone 8 device in the global market priced at $249 (BHD 94) will be a killer deal making the Windows Phone 8 more affordable.
