Nokia Lumia 620 to get water and dust resistant cover soon
The Nokia Lumia 620 is a relatively modest Windows Phone 8 handset that is made to attract the younger crowd. That's why it comes in a range of flashy, youthful colors and fancy finishes applied to its back cover. Moreover, its shell is removable, allowing one to have several of them in different colors.

But if a Nokia Lumia 620 prioritizes protection over looks, then this upcoming cover might suit their needs. Multiple sources indicate that there's a water-resistant cover coming for the Nokia Lumia 620. The accessory is reportedly rated IP54 for protection against dust and water damage, although it isn't guaranteed to survive after a dunk in the swimming pool. (A device would need something like IP67 certification for that.)

Word comes from Sander Teunissen, who works at Nokia Netherlands as a B2B Sales Manager. Additionally, sources for Windows Phone Live! have confirmed the existence of a Nokia Lumia 620 waterproof cover, although they clarify that it will take more than a few days before the accessory is released.

What the upcoming Nokia Lumia 620 accessory will look like isn't clear. Perhaps it will replace the device's shell, or it might be an actual protective case that the smartphone will be placed in. We'll let you know in case we learn more on the matter.

See, I'm not worried by the lack of updates and smoothness because of XDA.. I am just thinking to get 620 because I want to try wp8 and for me the grand's screen is a bit expansive for me... Unfortunately, all my tabs and phones are based on Android... :-( And yeah, there is also a price difference of around 6k. Really confused friend...Help needed !!
