Given that the Android device manufacturers are recently pushing in waterproof devices, consumers like to have such devices in all the segments of the market. Following on the same lines of Sony Xperia Z, premier Windows Phone manufacturers also seem to come up with waterproof smartphones.
Well, the talk here is all about Nokia as the Finnish giant is prepping to launch a dust proof and water resistant cover for Lumia 620. However, it has to be noted that Lumia 620 is not the first Windows Phone device to be waterproof as in 2012, Fujitsu IS12T launched with WP 7.5 was waterproof.
According to a tweet posted by Sander Teunissen, B2B Sales Manager for Nokia Netherlands, Lumia 620 will be getting an IP54 (Ingress Protection) certified protective cover. This certification will protect the smartphone against dust and also from water sprays from all directions.
While consumers may be excited to have the IP54 cover for Lumia 620, it is to be taken into consideration that the handset will lack an IP67 certification, which will protect the device even when it is slumped in a swimming pool.
It is to be noted that Nokia has already produced a rugged case for Lumia 820 and also sells a large number of smartphones for enterprise users in Finland. Additionally, a Windows Phone Live! report has revealed that the accessory will take sometime to release into the market.
Just to remind the specs, Lumia 620 boasts a 3.8 inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen display, 1GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5MP rear camera, VGA front camera, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 1,300 mAh battery. Lumia 620 will come in Magenta, Yellow, Cyan, White and Black color variants.
