Today we have for you unboxing pictures of Nokia Lumia 520. Its a windows phone 8 device and falls in the low budget smartphones. Nokia Lumia 520 is available in Pakistan for the price of Rs. 18,500. By further bargaining you can even get it for less.
Lets look at the specs for the phone

We will do a detailed review of windows phone 8 OS as well very soon. Now Lets take a look at some more pictures of the device.
