Q&A With Nokia Project Team: Lumia 620December 10, 2012 1 Comment
This morning I had the pleasure of joining a few other bloggers for a Q&A session with the Lumia 610 project team at Nokia. We jumped at the chance to ask the team questions about the newest member of the Nokia and Windows Phone family.
Does the L620 have the same screen tech (superfast refresh + Synaptics touch tech) as the L920/820
Lumia 620 does not have the same touch as 920. We’re very happy with the UI performance though and are hitting high scores in performance benchmarks
will it run all existing and future apps/games in WP8 store?
it is possible that there are/will be apps that require 1GB of RAM to run or run properly. we know that out of over 70.000 current apps only handful are those and none very high in top apps list. I have personally not run into a single one, and I have tested a lot of top games
The Lumia 620 has a microSD slot. How is it accessible? Does the phone need to be restarted or do the users need to remove battery?
the SD card reader is under the shell. you don’t need to remove the battery to change the SD card, thus hot swapping is possible
Will you be able to make these wireless with exchangeable shells?
Lumia 620 does not support wireless charging
Which color case will ship in the box?
we’re offering 6 different colors for Inbox at this time. it then vairies per market and customer what is offered to consumer
The press release mentioned sunlight readability enhancements like the 920. What technology is that talking about?
SRE optimizes the colors and contrast in very bright conditions for better readability. Lumia 620 also employs Clear Black technology and has pretty high max luminance that also make it well usable in bright conditions.
flash single LED or Dual LED?
Does the 620 have mono Rich Recording technology like the 920?
Lumia 620 has 2 high performance mics, such as Lumia 920, which allow to record up to 140db with no distortion
One question that everyone seemed to have was if and when it would hit the US. Nokia is giving no information yet as to the US availablity of the Lumia 620.
