You might not have noticed but Nokia also launched the Lumia 820 today, this is the mid range handset that actually offers many of the same features as the Lumia 920. Like most mid range phones it offers a slightly smaller display at 4.3″ as well as a lower resolution of 800 x 480, but they didn’t skimp on wireless charging and the same dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor.
The design is different but it has the same colourful polycarbonate shell even though the chassis is slightly more round. Nokia has also dropped the fancy-pants PureMotion HD+ WXGA display for a more conventional 800 x 480 ClearBlack panel. The fashionista in Nokia also reared its head with exchangable back panels which functionally allows you to attach the Qi wireless charging shell. In terms of connectivity it also has NFC which will keep many people off Nokia back about competitiveness. You are however restricted to just 8GB of on-board storage but you do have a microSD card slot which should let you add up to 32GB on your own.
The camera is the biggest let down where they have compromised on price for features as the Lumia 820 ditches the PureView a boring old 8MP shooter, even though it still comes with a dual-LED flash and full HD video capture, it still disappointing.
We won’t blame you if you want to carry on to check out the details on the newest PureView camera right over here.
We got to go hands on with the 4.3 inch beauty here if you need to see it for your self.
