Grey does matter. Lumia 920 loses its color for Hong Kong. Looks awesome.

The grey variant of the Lumia 920 Windows Phone has been spotted on the Nokia Hong Kong Facebook account. Yes, it actually exists. The device has been expected to arrive in multiple markets since the Lumia 920 was announced last year, but we're yet to see the colour made available in numbers for consumers to get their paws on. Not only has it been published on Facebook, but to lower the mood even further, it's on sale in Hong Kong.

Should you reside in the country, you'll be able to pick the matte grey Windows Phone up for 5,598 HKD (approx. $720). The Lumia 920 is available in glossy and matte versions, with white, black and red proving to be fairly popular thus far - though this could well be down to limited availability. If you're into individuality and personalisation of gadgets, this will be the choice for you.

  • I wont lie, Grey is gorgeous! 
     
    *Lumia 920 Yellow owner*
  • Agreed completely as a fellow Lumia 920 Yellow owner. If it was released in the US at the same time as the yellow it would have been a really tough choice.
  •   Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home) https://goo.gl/C0zcU   Happy New Year!    
  • or you're probably just a script.
  • Believe he's in a band called "One Direction"
  • When the 920 came out I was looking for the Grey but had to settle for black. Grey Matte is by far my favorite
  • This girl must be a child  =)
  • Tiny Asian hands make everything look bigger... Now where is that dirty joke I left somewhere around here?
  • I'm Asian, 16, and my hands ain't half as small as that picture's. Probably a baby's hand.
  • I have a red Lumia 920 with olive back case and olive theme. Beautiful!
  • Care to share a picture of the cover? Sounds good!
  • I will try post link.
  • Yeah, would love to see this
  • Completely agreed. Happy Lumia 820 yellow owner waiting to buy a grey cover.
  • I want. I want. I want
  • I so wanted a grey 920, but it just wasn't worth the $777 that Expansys wanted for it.  Oh well, I am very happy with my Glossy White Lumia 900, but I'm looking for a grey case :)
  • Looks amazing! I really wanted this color but i couldnt find it! Does that mean Hong Kong is the first country to get the gray color?
  • I believe people in Thai already have this.

  • No way man. We've had the grey here in Australia since December.
  • Robin, which carrier has the grey?! :0
  • I got my grey since the launch day (15 Nov 2012) in Thailand :)
  • Wanted the grey when the first pics of the 920 was shown. Unfortunately it never made it to the US. Stuck l with black.
  • Ugh...is it bad that I want multiple colors of this phone since everything syncs ... I have a red and yellow. The grey, dear me, the grey I want.
  • I wish everything synced.
  • I should have elaborated at least my SMS syncs.
  • I want that one!
  • Grey looks cool! Too bad it's not available here.
  • totally forgot about this, looks a lot nicer than I expected. 
  • I like her nails rocking nice with Portico in it
     
  • Love that color actually
  • Well good thing I can change the back color of my 820!
  • With a 3D printer it can be any colour.
  • AT+T really messed up missing this
  • Well i was looking for it in the first place.. never got any info about it. got the black one now.. glossy is not my thing
  • This was my first choice. Alas, no grey in the US. I do love my white, but I would have gone grey!
  • I feel more tact in hand with the glossy because more surface area is touching the hand. Having matte last time and glossy this time, I prefer glossy. How about a grey glossy?!?!?!?!
  • It looks huge in her hand! lol
  • I was thinking the same thing
  • They grey looks gnarly! I definitely would've gone with that if given the choice.
  • I don't get it...is it really that hard to make different color phone? Why don't they just have it availbale for everyone?
  • Agreed. In fact, I don't get half the s$&t these companies do.
  • Got a grey 920 right here in my hand (Australia, bought outright). I can confirm it looks sweet. Out of the box it had the accent colour set to Steel, and the lock screen image was a line of yellow vans parked on grey asphalt.
  • You, my dear friend just killed me
  • I would like that Grey myself!
  • God dammit AT&T...
  • Peeps were all upset that cyan wasn't making a comeback and they did anyways for the fans #nooneiseverhappy
  • Ugly, Looks like its still on primer waiting to be painted
  • Got my 822 in Grey and yes I love it!
  • Awesome! I only had 1 choice for the HTC 8x... Even though the colour really pops, I like more subtle colours.
  • Happy with my red 920 :)
  • This color does look very nice.
  • For me, it's the matte finish that really does it. I know I'm dreaming, but gimme a matte cyan L920 and I'll sign up for 2 years, no problem.
  • yea, i wanted a matte cyan too but it is not available out of US
  • That does look sharp. But I'm just as happy with my black 920 with grey tiles.
  • It does look pretty. But I prefer my classic matte black. Besides, I have grey tiles on my phone so it would end up being a bit of a grey overdose.
  • Rambo (first blood) is best movie of all time. Ps. I love that grey I need me some grey. Even better than the yellow. Sucks not available. Wa,wa,wa,
  • Man this is so sexy!
  • Anybody buy the Grey shell and assembled it to their 920
    ?
  • Wonder if magenta will make an appearance. Gf is waiting for it. I guess red too close to magenta.
  • Grey looks badass
  • I like the grey but I tried the "steel" theme on my L900 and I found that the home screen looks great, but things that are normally "highlighted" (like subjects of new emails) are difficult to see. I had to go back to Nokia Blue.
  • Have to admit, even though I like black the best...grey looks pretty nice.
  • I don't know why Nokia would even bother. They can't even make the yellow or cyan 920's. Why would they even consider introducing another color. They'll just wind up pissing even more people off by adding a new color, but not actually supplying AT&T with any in that color.
  • Yeap, Nokia simply can't produce any other colors, for some strange reasons.
  • I'm almost giving up yellow....too damn long and I don't even get an estimate on whether it'll come out in Feb or not...that's really ridiculous....common why is yellow harder to produce, did they spill the yellow paint somewhere?
  • Yeah, I think thats crazy how yellow is so hard to get hold of in the states. They were hard to get a hold of in thailand for the first month being sold out within hrs of delivery but now you can find them anywhere even though they are still in high demand. Maybe nokia is just limiting the colours to the states because internationally the price on these units are much more expensive and prefer to sell specific colours such as yellow and red to be able satisfy customers and make up for the low priced units being sold in the states. Just my thoughts and observation.
  • I'll tell everyone why they can't get yellow or cyan 920's in the USA. Its because that idiot Stephen Elop thinks that limiting the phone's availability is how to generate demand for the phone. So ok lets NOT sell phones and piss people off, so we can sell more phones. Such a great idea!!!
  • Y'all in the US have a Cyan 920. Rest of the world doesn't. What's with that?
  • EOS, emm one more line to my account!
  • Grey has been out for awhile now (here in thailand) and I believe only for international user. And yeah it does look sick in person too (I got that sexy Ferrari RED). But yeah, don't understand why they would release one color in the states (Cyan) and the other (Grey) for international only. It seems they would just release all color for all user/carrier.  Can't be marketing. Its not like someone who lives out of the states is going to go to ATT just to buy the Cyan (it being Locked) At least people from the states can buy grey since its unlock. Why limit it.  My first choice in color was Cyan. Thats probably why i'm b*tching... 
  • Mainly because AT&T refused to order grey.
  • But why limit the Cyan to only the States?
     
  • ? We have grey in au
  • I don't understand what the big deal is? Grey has been available in Australia since launch.
  • Harvey Norman in Australia had grey in early Dec 2012, i had a few, but all returned, they all had rattling issue, now waiting for the next batch
  • Rich, Hong Kong is a territory/city of China. It is not a country.
  • I`ve just bought it in HongKong Nokia Store - I was super lucky because they had the last one in grey when I arrived. And it looks stunning! :D
    A nice offer to it was mini portable speaker from Nokia for 8 HKD! :D I did some unboxing, take some pics of it with my beloved HTC Titan - I will post them on my blog later if anyone would like to see more :) 
  • Grey is my favorite color (well, and its variants: silver, metallic, titanium, etc.)--so the fact that AT&T is not carrying it has indeed kept me from upgrading from the 900. Sadly, if it and when it ever does arrive, it will probably be too late and a new Nokia device would be around the corner.
  • Grey looks better in pics than real life. Grey makes the phone look really old.
    I chose black over all other colors I've seen.
  • I really wanted cyan. Its so f'd up how its only available in the states when wp8 supposed to make a big impression to the public. Just stuck with crappy colors
