There’s also 8 GB of storage on board, a microSD card slot and an extra 7 GB of storage on Microsoft’s SkyDrive service.

The handset will ship with a bunch of protective cases in varied colors, including ones that give QI wireless charging compatibility. The screen here is a 4.3 inch HD AMOLED one, in case you are wondering and other specs include NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi and the Adreno 225 GPU will take care of gaming. There’s a 1650 mAh battery inside and the device weighs 160 grams and measures 9.9 mm in thickness.
