Nokia is planning on releasing a new bundle for the Lumia 620 (See our review of the Nokia Lumia 620), dubbed the Nokia Lumia 620 Protected Edition. According to PhoneArena, the new edition comes bundled with a phone case that has IP 54 certification and is being listed at a Finnish online retailer.

The certification means that when donning the case, the Lumia 620 will be impervious to dust and splashes of water. However, this doesn't meant that you can take the phone and dive into the swimming pool. The case won't be very effective against water when completely immersed in it. At most, it can be used to operate the phone or make a call when it's raining outside.

The Lumia 620 will sit alongside the Lumia 720 and the Lumia 520 in the mid-range slot of Nokia's smartphone portfolio. It sports a 3.8-inch display with a 480 x 800-pixel resolution, complete with Nokia ClearBlack technology to make it legible in all lighting conditions. Weighing in at just 127g, the Lumia 620 is also easy to carry around, though we must say it’s not the slimmest phone around at 11mm in depth.

The Lumia 620 is powered by a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, an Adreno 305 GPU and has 512MB of RAM. It also supports 3G, and has Wi-Fi. Surprisingly, it also packs NFC, which isn’t usually a feature found on handsets in this price bracket. With features like GLONASS for GPS, along with Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps, the 620 is pretty well loaded. Like the other Lumias, the 620 comes preloaded with a few imaging and editing apps for the camera. Nokia Camera Lenses and the City Lens app also add a little more value to the handset's worth.

Here are the key specs of the Lumia 620:

  • 3.8-inch TFT LCD ClearBlack WVGA display
  • HSPA, GPRS/EDGE
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band
  • Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, EDR
  • NFC; GPS with A-GPS support and GLONASS
  • 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera
  • 8GB internal storage, expandable up to 64GB
