The Nokia CP 623, a functional case will be available in matching colo rs at an MRP of INR 2999. The CP 623 is far more than just extra armor for the Nokia Lumia 1520. It has a front cover that can also flex and bend into different shapes to ensure you get the best viewing or working angle, while perfectly complementing the Nokia Lumia 1520’s design.


Spending sometime with the newly launched Nokia Lumia 1520 at the launch event, I can say that the display is gorgeous. That full HD display looks so good. Lumia 1520 is obviously big and requires two hands to operate. It is slim and good to hold. The camera too performed well. The yellow one looks probably the best amongst four different colors. FYI, these are just the first impressions of the handset, we need to review the device before we could make our judgment.
