Expanding its Lumia smartphone line-up to even wider price points, Nokia today announced the launch of its new Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 Windows Phone handsets, bringing the distinctive Lumia design and services to more consumers around the world.

At €139 ($183), the Lumia 520 is Nokia’s most-affordable Windows 8 smartphone to date and has a 4-inch (800×480) display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5-megapixel rear camera.
