Nokia Lumia 520’s 1GB RAM avatar, the Lumia 525, is now on sale in China for just ¥629 ($100)!
The Lumia 525 is more or less a Lumia 520 with an extra 512MB RAM thrown in. What’s interesting here is that the phone is priced just $100, which gives local Chinese manufacturers some serious food for thought. Specifications of the phone apart from the change to 1GB RAM remain unchanged. It still comes with a 4-inch WVGA screen, 8GB ROM, 1GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 5 mega-pixel rear camera and a 1430mAh battery. Like other Lumias, it runs the WP8 OS from Microsoft.
