Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone officially announced

Nokia announces the Nokia Lumia 820

Nokia has officially revealed the Lumia 820 Windows Phone.  As rumored, the announcement came during this morning's Nokia/Microsoft event in New York City.  Specifications for the Lumia 820 include:

  • 4.3" AMOLED display with ClearBlack Tech
  • SnapDragon S4 processor
  • 8MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss Optics
  • VGA front facing camera
  • 1650mah Battery
  • 8GB of storage
  • 1GB of RAM.
  • MicroSD expansion

The Lumia 820 will have a similar polycarbonate, uni-body design as the Lumia 800 with removable backplates (different colors).  

Under the hood look for NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi and GPS connectivity. The micro-USB port has been moved to the bottom of the device for uniformity across the Windows Phone family. Along with the micro-USB port, the Lumia 820 is fitted with inductive charges (a.k.a. wireless charging) that will allow the Windows Phone to be charged with contact the optional Nokia wireless charging.

We're hoping to have some hands on time with the Lumia 820 and will have more to share later in the day.  In the meantime, head on over to Nokia's Lumia 820 site to catch all the specs.
