One of the key things about the design of Nokia Lumia 620 is that it uses a new 'dual-shot' technique. According to Nokia, the technique adds a second layer of coloured, transparent or translucent polycarbonate plastic over the base layer to create 'secondary colour blends and depth effects'. The exchangeable shells of Lumia 620 will come in a variety of different colours that users will be able to choose to match their personal taste and style.

Powered by Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia 620 has all the enhancements to deliver 'a more personal smartphone experience'. This includes the 'People Hub’ that pulls together contact information from multiple address books and social networks into a single location, and the 'Me' Tile, from where people can check-in to their location, post an update or monitor notifications from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Built-in Microsoft services like Office, Xbox Live and 7 GB of free online storage via SkyDrive are also present on the Lumia 620.
