The wait for Nokia’s newest babies is over, after the phone was unveiled. The Nokia Lumia 820 came alongside its superior Lumia 920, and both of them have an impressive wireless charging capability. However, unlike the Nokia Lumia 920, you will have to purchase the charging shell separately, but that will not be a problem, since the convenience is great, and it is much cheaper than its sibling is. Here are its other specifications and features.
As mentioned earlier, it is very easy to upgrade it to make it rely on the Qi wireless power standard. Already, with a sufficient number of accessories in the market, this will be good news for Nokia enthusiasts. This means that you have the option of carrying your charger cable, or using the wireless power standard.
The Nokia Lumia 820 comes with a 4.3-inch screen, with a resolution of 800 by 480, and an impressive OLED ClearBlack display. It will be the newest kid on the block for the mid to high end Windows Phone operating system smartphones. There is ample internal storage fixed at 8GB together with a micro SD slot, more than enough for normal users to fit their games, music, images and occasional video.
A 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM combination will take on the newest mobile OS from Microsoft and provide users with all their multimedia computing needs. So far, this is an impressive hardware detail and since many users will be getting the Windows Mobile 8 OS for the first time, they will not get any disappointments from this phone.
The phone’s camera is similar to that one of the Nokia Lumia 920, having mega-pixel of 8, however, the PureView technology that was first introduced by the Nokia Pure View 808 is not part of the goodies that this phone has to offer. When you get a feel of the Nokia Lumia 820, you will realize that Nokia is serious about coming back to the game, where it was once a force to reckon.
Going with the tradition of Nokia to allow users to personalize their phones, the Nokia Lumia 820 comes with the option of changing covers when you feel as if you want to change to a different color, or when a new color becomes available, this is indeed a big deal!
Shipment should happen anytime in the fourth quarter of 2012, probably October for Europe and North America with the rest getting it just before Christmas holidays.
