More images of the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 show up, show off new colors

rum: 8

Although we’re less than 24 hours from Nokia doing the big unveiling of their new Lumia range expected for AT&T and other carriers, the leaks are still happening (which may be planned, for all we know).

The latest shows the back of the Lumia 820 in purple—that device is expected to have removable backplates for different colors akin to the Lumia 710.

The other shows the familiar stance of the Lumia 920 and its colors, including Yellow, Red, White, Black and evidently Silver/Grey.

Besides the removal of the chrome bezel for a presumably more scratch-resistant gunmetal grey bezel and matching buttons, there isn’t too much else to be gleaned. But that’s okay, as all will be shown tomorrow morning and we’ll be there live to cover it.

  • Woooowwww can't wait more !!
  • I'm so happy I saw the white!!!! I love that white Lumia 920!!
  • Is it tomorrow yet? :P
  • The Purple 820: Approved by Prince and Barney the Dinosaur.
  • Saints Row 3 colors, Planet Fitness and how can you forget black people.
  • "...how can you forget black people"? Yeah. Ya lost me there. Not sure what that's even supposed to mean.
  • Lol I think he was trying to be funny and bring up the whole "black people love grape drink" stereotype but it fell flat on it's face. Almost made me laugh at how pathetic an attempt at comedy that was.
  • Grape soda, and purple is usually associated with black people for some reason.
  • Somebody's going to have to explain to me how we get associated with the color purple. Unless you're referring to the Oprah movie. Purple usually just represents royalty.
  • I've been wondering about that myself. It just seems so off...
  • You have to be an idiot not to get it, i work on the ambulance drive in the hood areas, if its not purple, its pink, hot red, green any f.king color, starting from clothes to cars and houses, dont get the joke, be smarter and stfu
  • Ambulance driver or not.. Terrible "joke". Don't be dumb.
  • Terrible or not, its a fact, black ppl love colorful stuff, i dont even have to drive nowhere, just look at my black friends...
  • *wins most ignorant comment of the day*. I say day because some other asshole will top it tomorrow, just sayin'
  • If you had black, caucasian, or hispanic friends and categorized them that way, I'm pretty sure they would have performed the anointing of the sick on you AZZ a long time ago and thereby ended their friendship with you.
  • The more you comment on this subject, the more you sound racist to me. Your ambulance must be patrolling the crime ridden streets of Compton California to to see the things you're describing which are all asociated to gang membership in poverty stricken neighborhoods, but as usaual, racist people stereo-type and put everyone into the same group with themselves being superior.
  • Lol awesomeness
  • Damn RED looks HOT
  • Agree !! Even my lumia 800, it use red color cover and look great !
  • It'd be nice if they partner up with Product (RED) for the red phone. A beautiful phone for a good cause.
  • No love for Cyan? Seriously?
  • Just wait till tomorrow bro, best selling 900 in cyan and no next gen cyan? i dont think so.
  • I am certain they are trying to distinguish between the last gen and new gen.
  • Well black and white still black and white, and cyan still best selling and more noticeable then others, so...lets wait and see
  • Could be revealed at the event, or later like the white for 800. Nokia probably will not trash Cyan / blue , since it's their image color.
  • And now this:

    Really hoping that the wireless charging dock thingie does more than just charge.. would go along with the FB pic "Faster is better" as well (except of course that the chick in that pic is holding the phone in hand)
  • Not to be rude, but I dont understand what you're trying to say.
  • Best.comment.ever. (to comment above)
  • Nokia's Facebook page has a 'Faster Is Better' title posted - could mean LTE, could mean that charging with Nokia's Wireless Charging pad is faster (than say, charging via USB).
  • Silver looks awesome, it's going to be a tough choice. I'm surprised by the lack of cyan. 
  • Silver looks awesome, it's going to be a tough choice. I'm surprised by the lack of cyan. 
  • Cyan is what I want, since I also want a cyan Surface Pro tablet.
  • Me too. Here's to hoping there will be an AT&T exclusive Cyan version.
  • Screw AT&T.  Let some of the other, better networks get some love. 
  • No one is saying that the other networks can't throw down their money for exclusivity too...  AT&T is PAYING for no love to the smaller players.
  • I might go with the silver
  • Cyan is probably gonna be what they show at the launch so why give it away in a leaked picture ? Don't worry people im almost positive that Nokia will have a cyan colored Lumina
  • Red 920 ftw
  • Looks tremendous just wanna skip these hours real fast
  • That means, go to sleep early.
  • Cyan, Red, or gray... I think I'd go with gray. easier to accessorize and not become bore of.
  • So is an unlocked 920 only be capable of 2g speeds on t-mobile?
  • Ya for now. But later this year and early next year it will work on their 4g network.
  • dont remove the hump...and the xenon flash !!!
  • The 920 seems to have an awful lot of dead space below the screen. Specially if the screen is as big as 4,6" or whatever it is. Relative to that the dead space seems huge.
  • Love red and yellow, but I was really hoping for orange as a choice personally.
     
    These leaks have served well in keeping the new Nokia line in the news for about a week straight now, I approve.  Now, all I need to know is how much an off contract ATT version will be so I can use my StraightTalk sim with it.
  • am i the only one that thinks 820 looks ugly?
     
  • The 820 looks weak sauce
  • No, your spot on, the 820 looks pathetic. And sorry to say the 920 just looks like the 900 in different colours, nothing new. I'm going to wait on HTC now, as my favourite is the Samsung so far for on looks. I love my 710 but Nokia need to come up with an alternative for those who don't like in your face colours, or is that up to HTC, Samsung and the others to fill that gap!
  • I agree... Maybe the purple makes it look worse
  • I'd get the Purple...
  • Cyan or GTFO
  • The red one looks sexier than my girlfriends expensive underwear........... when she has it on...!
  • Well now you know what to get her for Christmas
  • I hope they have it in cyan. I already got the cyan nokia earbuds .... 
  • Cyan Has done so well online and in BM shops that they have decided to give it a premium touch. Hence releasing it later down the line. At CES13 I presume
  • Red 920 is the best looking phone I have seen so far.
  • Im with u on that red Nokia
  • Red and Cyon, well White and Black are just classic best.
  • :D
  • Anyone else notice in the Lumia 920 pics the 2 unread messages on top of 1 unread email? 21 MP PureView subtlety?
  • lol seriously? (i'll happilly eat my virual hat if im wrong but....)
  • lol I know it's wishful thinking, but I'm holding out for it.
  • Thinking about getting one, but I don't see how you can hold these WP phones comfortably without pushing at left one button on the right side of them. Is this a problem for others? Thanks.
  • I'm going with either Silver or Red.. Leaning towards Silver with Steel tiles..
  • The only thing that can kill this are the carriers. My gf would love that purple one, hope it goes to Verizon.
  • I like the extra space at the bottom but wish the three 'buttons' were lower, I feel like I always hit one of them when using the keyboard.
  • My new W8P is a yellow 920... :-)
    That is if htc don't come up with a REALLY special device...
  • wy do we have to chosse between  a big screen/good design and  medium screen/ugly design?
     
  • Idk about these phones. I find it hard to believe they would just rehash their old phones like this as their flagship. They just be concealing their high end device until tomorrow. The lumia 900 is a great phone don't get me wrong, but the screen can always be bigger. Here's hoping to the LUMIA 1020 being revealed tomorrow!
  • Look at the iPhone 4s. I don't see why the designs have to change.
  • I feel different about the 820 everytime I see it.
  • Hmmm, i would like all these colors. Red for eye candy and christmas. Yellow at the beach. White and Cyan for causal everyday. Gray for work and black if i ever go to a goth paty =)
  • Where are the smaller screens? Am I the only one who doest want anything bigger then 4 inches?
  • I'm also in the "bigger ≠ better" camp. At 4.3" my HD7 is at my comfort limit.
  • Shut up and take my money NOW!!!!
    Those are some hot looking phones. Ready to make the jump from the android camp to WP. Just hope t-mobile gets some decent high end phones and not some middle of the road stuff. That ATIV sammy phone looked fantastic!!! Reminds me of my GSII but I'd rather have some color and the nokia phones are looking bad ass!
  • I'll take the red...
  • I really hope every carrier gets the Lumia 920! Those sharp corners are sexy!
  • I was hoping for the orangey red that's on the Pureview
  • They better have the cyan 920... i got cyan purity ear buds and if they dont lol...that will really bug me.
  • Most of you folks must be ATT customers, all jolly about the Nokia 920.
  • I want a brown one.  Brown is the new white.
     
  • That 820 looks like an HTC device.
  • Cyan?  Oh well I guess I'll go with white unless the silver looks awesome in person
  • A black phone is kinda play out now.  Give me color
  • Red looks hot hoit hot!
  • It's a Lumia world baby!
  • It's nice to have a lot of colors to choose from but it may not be that nice for the retailers as mentioned here in regard to the color choices: http://blog.faktat.com
    Especially if you are a smaller retailer, you will have to have a lot of different boxes for a single phone model because of the color choices. And if you don't get all the colors, those customers who want them will go elsewhere. I would think that it puts some limits to how many choices Nokia can provide.
