Nokia is continually expanding its Windows Phone 8 portfolio with the addition of the Lumia 720 and 520 which were both announced yesterday at the 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

Both devices pack a dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and share many of Nokia’s software like Nokia Drive, Maps and software lenses to name a few. The two phones look relatively similar to each other with only subtle differences in terms of screen size and the camera.

Having said this, the Lumia 720 features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels with super sensitive touch technology that works with gloves and nails. The Lumia 720 comes with 512 MB of RAM, NFC, and a 2000 mAh battery.

There’s 8GB of on-board storage with support for microSD expansion of up to 64 GB. The camera on the back of the phone is a 6.7-megapixel unit with Carl Zeiss optics. The 720 comes in a plastic body with interchangeable panels that support wireless charging. The phone is expected to make its way first in Asia then to the rest of the world by Q2 of 2013 at around $330.

On the other hand the slightly smaller Lumia 520 packs the same 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM but with a smaller 4-inch IPS LCD with super sensitive touch. The camera at the back takes 5-megapixel photos and can shoot 720p videos.
