Nokia Lumia 520 pictures and hands-on

Nokia has announced a new entry level smartphone within the Lumia family, as it looks to drive down the price of Windows Phone even lower. 

The new Lumia 520 will be a budget offering, but still pack most of the features found on the company's flagship device the Lumia 920. 

In a move that will no doubt please people in developing countries, the 520 will come with Here Maps, Here Drive and a host of other apps from Nokia that makes the phone incredibly good value for money. 

With more of a budget in mind, the Lumia 520 is to features a 4-inch display, rocking a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, and 8GB of storage with a micro SD card capacity up to 64GB. 

The Lumia 520 will come with the same cameras found in the Lumia 920, like Panorama and Cinemagraph. 

The phone will come with a 5-megapixel autofocus camera and video recording HD 720p 30fps capabilities, and although we weren't able to fully test the new camera capabilities on stand properly, a quick play showed us that it works as you would expect, being quick to focus and shoot. 

In the hand and the new 520 is really well built with a good-quality, crisp screen that really shows off the Windows Phone operating system it's powered by. 

Like previous models within the Lumia range, the colours available are bright and colourful and really work well here.  

The 520 will come in five colour options: cyan, yellow, red, black and white.
