Nokia unveiled the Lumia 720, a mid-range Windows Phone 8 warrior with a twist, that comes with a unibody design, and different colors. In fact, the Lumia 720 is the first Nokia phone with both a unibody design and a microSD memory extension card slot. There is wireless charging thrown in the mix, too, with an optional wireless car charger accessory.
The camera is 6.7-megapixel, with backside-illumination and auto-focus, built with a Carl Zeiss lens, and with LED flash. It has a huge for a smartphone aperture of f/1.9 that allows better low-light performance. There is also a 1.3-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera, so you can fit more people in the frame. We even snapped some samples for you, which you can see below.
Nokia's lead designer actually called it "pillow-like, human shape," and it sits very well in the hand with the 9mm thin body, weighing at 128g. The side keys seem to be made of the same zirconium material used on the Lumia 920, so they should be tough and scratch-proof.
We get a 4.3” ClearBlack LCD SuperSensitive display with a curved glass that can be uses with gloves, nails and the like. The viewing angles are excellent and there's barely a reflection under the expo light, meaning it should perform well outside, too, since the display looks sufficiently bright.
The device will arrive in glossy white or matte red, yellow, cyan and black, and is to cost around $330 (or EUR 250) SIM-free when it hits in Q2 2013.

Now folks this is what Competition is all about. I have a Lumia 920 but this phone looks sexy and the fact that it has a expandable memory will make it sell like hotcakes. Welcome to the ranges Lumia 720!! This phone has the same battery has the Lumia 920. This phone also has NFC and has changeable back colour plates!! I love the design of this phone!! NOKIA You are paying attention and I am loving it!!
I don think so friend. I owned Galaxy SII and then Galaxy S Advance. It works very Smooth but they often got stuck, maybe it was a bad experience on me only but this experience i never met on Nokia device at all. I start using phone from 2008 and untill now i have been using around 30 phone which most of them were Nokia devices. Nokia is my first favorite phone from the begging and finally Nokia is still my favorite phone.
what i wonder is why Nokia decided to give up its Symbian OS? it is very similar to Android.
Actually,I think that Nokia will bring Sybian back,because it will see competition in Firefox OS or Jolla OS or Ubuntu Mobile,so it must have a back-up plan for that competition except Windows Phone!Let's hope Symbian isn't dead for lifetime :D
If this is made available on Verizon I would definitely consider it. The display size is good enough as is the resolution and the camera sounds really nice. I'll be waiting for the battery life and call quality results though.
