You can also personalise your phone with the Nokia CC-3079, a gloss or matte-finished outer casing available in the colours green, orange, or yellow.
Other features within the new Lumia phones include fitness tracking with an integrated low-power chip called SensorCore, Windows Phone navigation keys integrated into the user interface, a faster social experience with the new Word Flow keyboard, upgraded Live Tiles, the new Action Center, and pre-installed apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Nokia Camera, Nokia HERE, Nokia MixRadio, etc.
"You’ll also find the latest Xbox games and Internet Explorer straight out of the box for fun, and Enterprise updates that make these phones even better for business with Microsoft Office and OneDrive," announced Nokia in its release.
