The Nokia Lumia 505 is a budget smartphone developed by Nokia that runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.8 operating system. It was announced in December 2012 as a Telcel-exclusive device and became available in early January 2013 in Mexico.[1][2][3] In late January 2013 the Lumia 505 became available in Colombia, Chile and Peru on Claro Americas.[4] It was exclusive to the Latin American market and was not announced or released for any other markets.

Primary features[edit]

The primary features of the Lumia 505 are:[5]



The Lumia 505 has a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive display. It is powered by an 800 MHz Cortex-A5 Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, 256 MB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage. It has a 1300 mAh Li-Ion battery and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It is available in black, white, red and pink.[6]


The Lumia 505 ships with Windows Phone 7.8.

Relationship to the Lumia 510[edit]

The Lumia 505 is a market-exclusive sister device to the globally released Lumia 510 and shares a number of specifications with it, including utilizing the same 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and having only 256 MB of RAM and 4 GB internal flash memory. The Lumia 505, however, has a slightly different design, with a smaller 3.7-inch AMOLED screen (versus a 4.4-inch LCD screen on the Lumia 510), shorter battery life of 7.2 hours (versus 8.3 hours) and higher resolution 8-megapixel camera (versus 5 megapixels).[7][8] The Lumia 505 is also available in a different set of colors from the Lumia 510, namely black, white, red, cyan and yellow.[5][8]


The phone was originally released for sale exclusively through Telcel in Mexico in the beginning of 2013 as a carrier exclusive for MXN $3,499 without a contract.[1][9][10] In late January 2013, it was announced that the phone would also become available in Colombia, Chile and Peru on Claro Americas becoming market exclusive to Latin America.[4][10][11]
