Nokia's new Lumia 625 smartphone will be available in Australia from late August, the company announced today.
The Lumia 625 will be available from Friday, 23 August through Allphones, Dick Smith, JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman retail stores.
Nokia also confirmed that Telstra and Optus will sell the Lumia 625 later in August, while Virgin Mobile will stock the smartphone from early September.
Telco pricing for the device has not yet been announced but the phone will retail for $399 outright.
Nokia Australia’s managing director, Steve Lewis, said the Lumia 625's key feature is the large 4.7in screen.
"The Nokia Lumia 625 has our largest ever smartphone screen with 4G internet access and our latest apps," he said.
"It's a handset with big personality, but happily for consumers a much smaller price tag."
Nokia officially announced the Lumia 625 overnight. The company says the 4.7in screen is the largest on any Nokia smartphone.
The Nokia Lumia 625 will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, has 512MB of RAM and comes with 8GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot allows users to expand storage.
Other features of the Lumia 625 include a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.
The Nokia Lumia 625 will be available in Australia in white or black colour variants.
Virgin Mobile will sell the white Lumia 625 with a bonus changeable orange shell, while other retailers will sell the black Lumia 625 with orange shell.
