Nokia introduces 105, 301, Lumia 520 & 720

At MWC, Elop states that Nokia will be bringing their high-end phone features to their newer line of devices, namely the Nokia 301, Nokia 105, Nokia Lumia 520 & Nokia Lumia 720.

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series


The 105 is the entry point to Nokia, costing around 15 EUR / $20, which equates to less than Php1,000 (before taxes and subsidies). The device comes with FM Radio, flashlight and a dustproof & splashproof keypad. Nokia also claims that the device can go on for two weeks of standby.

Nokia 105 specs:
1.45-inch 65k Color Display
8MB memory
3.5 mm jack
107 x 44.8 x 14.3 mm


The 301 features Slam & some camera features like sequential shot (3-5 pictures in a row) and panorama. Slam allows sending photos through slamming with bluetooth, without the need to pair. The device will come in cyan, magenta, yellow, white, and black. Also, the Nokia 301 will come with HD Voice and Mail for Exchange in Single & dual-SIM variants. The Nokia 301 will be going around for 65 EUR before taxes and subsidies (Php3,500).

Nokia 301 specs:
2.4” QVGA display
Up to 256MB (microSD card up to 32GB)
3.2MP camera
Bluetooth 3.0
3.5mm audio jack
Dual SIM variant
114 x 50 x 12.5 mm


The Lumia 520 packs a 4-inch super sensitive display similar to the one on the 920. Also, it features the same digital lenses like Cinemagraph. It will be all on board the 5MP AF camera. It will be around 139 EUR on release – that is less than Php7,500 (before taxes and subsidies). The Nokia Lumia 520 will come around in yellow, red, cyan, white or black.

Nokia Lumia 520 specs:
4-inch IPS LCD display(800 x 480 pixels)
1 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon CPU
512 MB RAM
8 GB internal memory
microSD card up to 64GB
5MP AF camera
720p video recording at 30fps
Windows Phone 8
119.9 x 64 x 9.9 mm


While the others didn’t feature NFC and the like, the Nokia Lumia 720 compensates for it. The device also features a front-facing 1.3 megapixel wide-angle camera and a rear 6.7MP camera with an f/1.9 aperture. It’s no PureView, but Nokia claims it can take magnificent shots. It will be available in matte red, yellow, cyan, black and glossy white for 249 EUR (Php13,500 before taxes and subsidies).

Nokia Lumia 720 specs:
4.3-inch ClearBlack super sensitive display (800 x 480 pixels)
1 GHz Dual Core Snapdragon CPU
512 MB RAM
8 GB internal memory
microSD card up to 64GB
6.7MP AF camera, Carl Zeiss, with LED Flash
720p video recording at 30fps
1.3 megapixel front-facing wide angle camera
Windows Phone 8
127.9 x 67.5 x 9mm
Wireless Charging

It looks like there won’t be any high-end phones to come from Nokia soon – which is a good call since the Nokia Lumia 920 isn’t even available in some countries yet.

    android for power user
    WP8 standard users

    android lots of apps and games, but many are not needed, good for multimedia

    WP8 a bit boring but very fast, all needed apps are available, good battery life

    just choose what is best for you

    LOL mga bobo talaga tong mga android fanboys. kung magsalita kala nila nasubukan na nila lahat. I used almost all major platforms in the market from windows mobile, android, windows phone, iOS, symibian, meego…and all i can say is, theres nothing as flawless as windows phone! well iOS came in close but it was boring.. windows phones are totally different from windows mobile, FYI.. windows mobile is a “pocket pc” meaning it resembles the environment of a PC, only smaller… while windows phone is just a phone, a super smart phone. and comparing a windows phone with android given the same hardware specs, windows phone blows android out of the water.. a 1.4 Ghz w/ 512 MB ram android is way too laggy compared to a windows phone with the same specs (lets say the lumia 900 which has ZERO LAG!)…

    app-wise, windows phone is equiped with all the essential apps.. android have a big collection of apps but more than 50 percent of it are irrelevant and redundant! its time to wake up android fanboys! I like android because of its customizability but it is a half-cooked OS… windows phones are flawless…

    • Avatar for rk rk says:

      FYI, windows phone needs a higher specs (more CPU, more GPU compute, more memory, more storage space..) compared to lean and mean android.

      lets prevent using bads words here… blog po to nang-yugatech… di po to forum… amateurs!!!

    • Avatar for braz braz says:

      FYI @rk, mali-mali mga inputs mo. ung android mismo ang nees ng more CPU/ more GPU. hindi mo ba notice na habang tumataas ang version ng android which is ngayon jellybean na, tumataas din processor ng ilang phone manufacturer? from single, to dual ngayon nag quadcore na cla? pati ung RAM memory tinaatasan na din. ung Wp8, kahit dual lang yan, kaya niyag talunin ung quadcore ng android sa bilis ar processing. mas stable ang wp8 kesa sa android!! kita mo walang katapusang update ang android? bukas paggising mo bka Android 5 na, baka Android Sugar-Caramel na ang name. LOL.. gising ka nga baka natutulog ka lang kc…

    First off, kaya konti ang apps ng Windows Phone, kasi may testing process pa bago ipublish. Android nga pasok ng pasok ng apps, hindi man lang magawang i-test kung may virus. Ate ko nga naka-ilang format na sa android phone niya.
    Second, malinis, walang pa-extra-extrang stuffs na nakakalowbat na nga, nakaka-lag pa.
    Third, So, kung old na ang OS, wala nang kwenta??? I bet di niyo na inaalagaan mga lola niyo.
    Bottomline, WP=maganda, iOS=fair enough, android=rubish

    • Avatar for Boomerwhang Boomerwhang says:

      What the heck? The old rumors of “viruses” in Android is still around?! Amateurs… In the first place Android and Apple operate their apps in sandbox mode (so it won’t affect core systems) which means that if you have any malicious app installed, it can be instantly removed just by uninstalling it.
      You know how you can avoid this? Use GOOGLE PLAY only! It’s because you idiots keep using hacked apps, if you can’t afford to BUY ORIGINAL apps, and something happens, don’t badmouth or blame Google. Cheap bastards…

      agree ako dyan boomerwhang… two thumbs up!

    First off, I’m a WP7.5 user.

    Apps wise, sure Windows Marketplace is weak but everything that you need is readily available in the Marketplace. Android on the other hand has all this apps that really wants to be apple or some kind.

    Buying an Android phone seems like owning just another Android Phone. Whatever the spec, or brand. It’s just another Android Phone. And if you are someone who is a digit whore which loves to compete against other people in terms of “Clockspeeds, RAM, etc.” well you sure should go for an Android. They will price you Heck of a lot for it. On the other hand, Microsoft hands you this practically built phone that is ready to use, easy to use, touch friendly, user-friendly and doesn’t have that feeling that it wants to be a pc which the Android seems to do.

    Let’s all admit that Android wants to be a full-blown platform on its own much like the desktop pc which is an all around device but heck, Android is just another OS that you beat out the crap off, customize the pre-loaded firmware just to make it “easier” to use and then destroying it by flashing and installing some bloatwares and stuff.

    Not mentioning the Android’s Battery life versus Windows Phone.

      * windows phone is a 2010 version of windows mobile (launched in 2000). the Phone OS is already 12 years old, yet it has a very small market share around less than 5%.

      * apple iOS, used in iphone and ipad – born in 2007 and still kicking android for top spot.

      * android – born in 2008, and king of the hill (thanks to samsung).

      The market segment for each phone OS…

      Android – pang-masa (aka Erap)

      Apple IOS – pang-mayaman (aka Nonoy via Kris)

      Windows Phone – for suckers (aka GMA)

    • Avatar for Oli Oli says:


      But you do know that Windows Phone OS is not the same as the Windows Mobile, right?

      FYI, they made the Windows Phone OS from ground up. They first had the Windows CE and Windows Mobile until they had the chance to make a firmware exclusive for the Zune HD and gave way to Windows Phone 7.

      Microsoft’s small market shows that only a few knows what is good stuff.

    ok nokia kung sa low end lang kayo yan tig 3500 at 1000 pero if yan 520 above wag na. promise pangit tlga

    • Avatar for emem emem says:

      really? no apps? that’s it? with all the apps your downloaded, how often mo nagagamit? I have s3, iphone and wp8 phones. wp8 doesn’t suck. kung operation lang ng phone… the lowest lumia can easily beat the higher spec na android. all phones i use for emails calls text facebook which i guess majority panay facebook din lang naman ang gamit and yet it works well. don’t put down a really good OS. sa pagkafelxible ng android and people not closing apps religiously… bumabagal din yun.

      yes apps is a big deal nowadays pero don’t let your world revolve around it…

    • Avatar for nex-6 nex-6 says:

      question. how many and what are the apps that you are actually using?

    The 105 looks like the perfect beater phone. I just wish Nokia would ditch the proprietary charging port on their low end phones and go with microUSB.
