Nokia Lumia is never about showing off the hardware specifications of their phones, because they do not use the UI-lag prone Android for which the mobile manufacturers need highly powered processors along with high configuration of RAM on the phone. Windows Phone 8 does not ask for all this phone, the User interface in this Operating System is fluid enough even at low hardware configuration. This time Nokia Lumia 720 is all about the style of the phone in the terms of colors and the build.
Lumia 720 Specifications an Key Features
Nokia Lumia 720 has 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Dual Core processor supported by 1 GB RAM which is not great enough when compared to the Android phone specs but enough for the Windows Phone 8 supported phones. As described it has got the latest Windows Phone 8 OS. The display size is of 4.3 inches with IP LCD display (216 pixels per inches), the clarity of the screen is again not that high when compared with the new android phones which are in the mid-range like Sony Xperia SP or Samsung Galaxy Grand. It has multi-touch feature and prevented by the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
Now when talking about the internal storage then it comes with the internal capacity of 8GB which can be extended up to 64 GB with the help of an external micro SD slot (this is something seen of the first time in the smartphone series of Nokia Lumia). Apart from they will also have the access to the SkyDrive cloud storage of 7 GB for free as the complementary feature, so storage will never be a problem for the Nokia Lumia 720 users. The camera has a Carl-Zeiss lens (which is already popular in Nokia Phone since N-8) and it is 6.7 MP with a flash light support. It also has a VGA camera on its front. There is new filter available this time, which can neatly edit your images like whitening your teeth or lightening a scar.
On the back of this phone you will see a three pin slot besides speaker which is available for the wireless-charging cases and it will not come in the box of this phone, you will have to buy one.

As of now the price has not been specified but as per the price marked as 330 USD we can expect it to be near 17k INR. If you do not want to try your luck on the Chinese phones under 20k and wish to have a phone which will never show UI show for few years to come, then I will recommend the users to go for Nokia Lumia rather than gambling over the Chinese phones in the market. The only problem is the number of applications which are not available in a huge number on the Window Phone.
