Nokia Mexico has made the Lumia 505 official, after teasing it last week. The exclusive low-end Windows Phone device modeled after the Lumia 510 and is going to launch on Mexico's Telcel network in the upcoming weeks.
Launching in red, pink or black, the Lumia 505 runs on Windows Phone 7.8 and features a 3.7" AMOLED display and a single-core 800MHz CPU with 256MB of RAM. It's not known whether the display is going to utilize Nokia's ClearBlack technology just yet, but it's still a solid feature in a budget phone.
On the back, there's an 8MP camera, albeit sans Carl Zeiss technology. To keep the price down, Nokia hasn't included a front-facing camera and has reduced the amount of user available storage to 4GB. Sadly, it's not user expandable, but Nokia and Microsoft will throw in 7GB of free SkyDrive storage.
The Nokia Lumia 505 weighs 131 grams and measures 118.1 x 61.2 x 11.3 mm. It rocks a 1300mAh battery, which Nokia says will be good for 36 hours of music playback and 7.2 hours of 3G talk time. The maximum standby time is reported at 600 hours.
Pricing and exact availability are still to be announced by Telcel, with the Lumia 505 expected to be launched in the coming weeks.
