Nokia Lumia 720 unveiled
The Nokia Lumia 720 has a 4.3” ClearBlack LCD display with a curved glass and super sensitive touch that you can use with gloves. The design is of the pillow like, ‘human’ shape. It is 9mm thick and weighs 128g.
It has a brilliant camera with extremely large aperture of f/1.9 that allows a lot of light in resulting in great low-light performance. The camera is 6.7-megapixel, with backside-illumination and auto-focus, built with a Carl Zeiss lens. It has LED flash and supports 720p video recording at 30 frames per second.
There is also a 1.3-megapixel wide-angly front-facing camera.
The Lumia 720 is the first Nokia phone with both a unibody design and a microSD memory extension card slot.
The device will arrive in glossy white or matte red, yellow, cyan and black. Best of all, it will only cost around $330 (250 euro) off contract and support wireless charging. Expect to see it on store shelves in Q2 2013.

Aside from the lower resolution display of the Nokia, half the RAM, and undefined 1 GHz dual core processor that is undoubtedly inferior to the 1.5 GHz S4 in the 8X, sure.

Have you watch the lumia 620 sometimes beating the 920 in loading apps, etc?

I don't think this phone beats the 8x(since it has an hd screen, 8mp camera with full hd video recording)but the 8s

It was even before that! I remember C6-01 had it!

If I am not wrong first one with clear black display was Nokia E7
15. ogy_dogy (Posts: 453; Member since: 29 Jun 2012)
No, and here is why, while amoled has deep black it oversaturates everything. on the other side clearblack gives you pure black but the ips tech gives you true to life colors. and as far as i know most oems are switching to ips...

Really? Clearblack is an old techno and it also produces pure white colors too not blue tints like we have seen on Super Lame-oled plus screen.

Oh yes, ive seen that tint on every single samsung phone that has an amoled display.. My Lumia 800 has a perfect screen and no tint :D Plus the blacks are truly black, it makes phone look even more awesome...

lol hemorid, Samsung is the onw who stole AMOLED from Nokia, dont talk if you dont know,
29. applesauce (banned) (Posts: 165; Member since: 26 Aug 2012)
Nokia developed ClearBlack, and even has Samsung manufacture some of its ClearBlack AMOLED displays (I believe my Lumia 900's screen was made by Samsung). Perhaps this is what Nokia was referring to when they said Samsung may be stealing ideas from the production lines?

You just made yourself look like an idiot...
Clearblack is not a screen... Its a screen filter... Dumb...

if I can use on Verizon as a backup phone I'll take it!! actually I'll even take the 520

Unlikely, unless Verizon were to adopt GSM tech (unlikely, as they're going to be shutting down their CDMA networks over the coming years and getting everyone on LTE for data and voice). Good reason to switch to AT&T or T-Mobile

Darn!! thanks though first time I ever thought of having a backup phone so didnt know what to look for

Very Nice Mid-range Windows Phone 8 by Nokia. Sexy unibody design + SD Card+ClearBlack Display+Large Aperture Camera. This is THE phone if anyone want a midrange WP8 phone.
