Grey Nokia Lumia 920 gets spied in the wild in London

A few days ago we saw the Nokia Lumia 920 being used in Washington presumably by some lucky Microsofty. Now, we have an image sent to us of the matte grey Lumia 920 being used in public in the UK.

No other info was gleaned e.g. release dates or pricing, unfortunately. So users will just have to hold out until "November". Either way, it's good to know it's out and testing, getting ready for that launch. Thanks, Donavan M., for the great spy photo!

  • Looks like the picture was snapped with a Lumia 800!
  • :D
    It's not that bad, pretty good actually these days after update.
    Anwyays that gray is looking great. Still deciding between black, yellow or gray. 
  • Has the update helped a lot?  My wife has a Lumia 800 and she's never been happy with the pics.  She may have not really tried again though after the latest update.  Still, the 800 is WAY better than the crappy LG Optimus 7 I roam with.  Can't wait for a 920.
  • I got a l800 and the pictures are great...
  • Just take my money already. It's going to be hard to wait another month for the release date.
  • It might just be one of those thick Lumia 800/900 cases.
  • No the headphone jack is in the centre.  That's only on the 920.
  • Why didn't he look over his shoulder instead! :)
  • One thing we know: the owner is/was married :)
  • Was thinking the same thing.
  • The ring should be on the other hand then, either that or the pic was flipped.
  • Love that industrial-looking gray!
  • @dsba..i noticed that too, we can also see his nails are trimmed nice, quick..find the closest shop around there, then there is the RED button on his jacket, hummmm. What can that b..??
  • It seems to be some sort of pouch, or backpack sitting on his lap! You can sorta see the zipper!
  • It's a swiss army bag of some sort.
  • Dang, beat me to it.  I was just going to say it looked like a Swiss Army brand backpack on his lap.
  • My next phone color and all!!! Ahhhb I can't !!
  • The more I think about it, the more I wish they were able to taper the ends. That has a huge effect on the perceived thickness. IMO, the 800 had the most pleasant shape of all the Lumias so far.
  • Has anybody else notice that there are no front-facing pictures or videos of a gray 920 in use? I wonder if it has a unique color scheme for the home screen they're not showing?
  • That guy is holding my phone!  :)
  • I work in the same area where Microsoft is based in Reading UK. Tend to see a few people from MS sitting on the bus with new products that they are testing. Wondering if this is the same place? I haven't seen a 920 yet.
  • I saw a picture of this and it has the old home button not the new one
  • I'm leaning towards the red 920 but at the last minute I might chicken out and go conservative with the grey! I'm done with the so-yesterday black or white phone! LOL!
