(The Philippine Star) - May 11, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Nokia has announced the availability of two new smartphones in the Philippines: the Nokia Lumia 720 and the Nokia Lumia 520.

The Nokia Lumia 720 is bound to stand out from the crowd. Positioned as a midrange smartphone, it is sleek, light, and a bright device with high-end technology packed into its beautiful and seamless uni-body design.

This device is powered by a massive 2,000 mAH battery and raises the bar for all the midrange smartphones in the segment. Weighing only 128 grams, this Windows Phone 8 device is a class above and the envy of its peers.

The Nokia Lumia 720 is made for the socially savvy crowd. It comes with an HD-quality 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with wide-angle lens. This sleek device brings the best Nokia front-facing camera experience and is capable of snapping perfect group portraits with friends, or making Skype calls with loved ones.

The Nokia Lumia 720 is also equipped with the exclusive Carl Zeiss optics and Nokia’s largest f1.9 aperture, thus making it a breeze to snap clear images, by day or by night.

For those looking to upgrade to a smartphone, the Lumia 520 is the perfect device to bring the Windows Phone 8 experience with high-end Nokia innovations at an affordable price.

Digital camera lenses transform the five-megapixel autofocus camera on the Nokia Lumia 520 into a fun way to capture pictures and share memories. Cinemagraph adds motion to still images that can then be shared with friends on Facebook, Twitter or via e-mail.

Smart Shoot lets people create the perfect group picture, taking multiple images and selecting the best facial expressions from each, or even remove people from the shot. The easy-to-use Panorama lens captures super-wide-angled photos to take in more of the scene.

With Windows Phone 8, Nokia Lumia 520 also provides a more personal smartphone experience. Pinning playlists, HERE routes, webpages and documents direct to the Start Screen as Live Tiles makes it easier to access favorite content, while People Hub brings all social media notifications and messages into one convenient location.

With Xbox, 7GB of free online SkyDrive storage as well as Microsoft Office with Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint available out of the box, Windows Phone 8 makes the Nokia Lumia 520 one of the most powerful smartphones at this price point. With an 8GB mass memory and expandable 64GB memory slot, Nokia Lumia 520 also allows to store a wealth of content created and collected.

With Near Field Communication (NFC) built into the Nokia Lumia 720, pairing, connecting and sharing data would just be a tap away. NFC allows wireless transfer of data by placing the devices at close proximity, or by tapping them together.

Check out the HERE experience on both the Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520. These devices come pre-installed with a full HERE suite of applications including HERE Maps and HERE Drive.

With Nokia HERE, say goodbye to long and tedious Web browsing and the opening of a dozen tabs to get directions to a desired location. Nokia HERE brings a platform that integrates both Maps and Drive to offer users an outstanding experience on the road, or by foot. Not only that, HERE maps and HERE drive can be used without Data or Wi-Fi connection.

The new HERE Maps also comes with the integration of LiveSight, Nokia’s set of augmented reality technologies. LiveSight uses “sight” as a fundamentally new way to discover and navigate the world, recognizing what people see through their phone’s camera and layering that view with relevant, place-based information.

LiveSight also powers Place Tag, a new digital lens introduced for Lumia today. Combining Nokia’s unique capabilities in location and imaging, Place Tag adds location stamps to photos with relevant information about pictured places. 

The Nokia Lumia 720 has an SRP of P14,590 and the Nokia Lumia 520, P7,990.  Both devices are available at Nokia Stores.
