Nokia Lumia 720 also known as Nokia 720 RM-885 was announced in February 2013 and is available at e-commerce shops from April 2013. Nokia Lumia 720 comes with a single microSIM and supports both 2G GSM and 3G HSDPA networks. It is sleek with 9 mm thickness and light weight with 128 g.

Its 8 GB internal memory can be expanded externally up to 64 GB via microSD card. The RAM of 512 MB should have been more taking its price tag into consideration. The internet and data connectivity is supported by GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB and NFC. Of course, NFC is not of much use in India at present since there are no facilities for it. The camera features are good with 6.1 MP primary camera and 1.3 MP secondary camera. Nokia Lumia has Qualcomm MSM8227 chip supported dual core 1. 0 processor which is supported by Adreno 305 GPU.

While buying the smartphones, we should always compare their prices at several e-commerce sellers. Searching these online selling websites have yielded the following results:
Nokia Lumia 720 is quoted at Rs.18999 by Flipkart. But it says that the offer is valid only up to April 24 and it is an exclusive pre-order offer. The same price of Rs.18999 is also quoted by online sellers Homeshop18 and Indiatimesshopping. However, the pre-order price quoted by Kanusa.com is Rs.15990, which is about Rs.3000 less than what is quoted by other online sellers. But we should also carefully read the statement given in red just above the specifications that the smartphone will be available in Mid May 2013 and the price is a pre-order price subject to change.
