Aside from the Nokia Lumia 920, the Finnish company and Microsoft announced today the Nokia Lumia 820, a 4.3 inch smartphone with exchangeable battery cover and Windows Phone 8. The handset uses the same 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 CPU as the one of the Lumia 920, plus 1 GB of RAM and a 4.3 inch display.
The handset’s design finally strays from the classic Lumia 900/800 format and gets turned into something symmetrical. The screen uses a glass ClearBlack OLED 800 x 480 pixel display, a flat one and not convex like on the 920. The body’s finish is glossy polycarbonate and the device doesn’t feature a PureView camera, unlike the Lumia 900. You get an 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss optics sensor and a front facing VGA camera for video conferencing. There’s also 8 GB of storage on board, a microSD card slot and an extra 7 GB of storage on Microsoft’s SkyDrive service.
The handset will ship with a bunch of protective cases in varied colors, including ones that give QI wireless charging compatibility. The screen here is a 4.3 inch HD AMOLED one, in case you are wondering and other specs include NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, WiFi and the Adreno 225 GPU will take care of gaming. There’s a 1650 mAh battery inside and the device weighs 160 grams and measures 9.9 mm in thickness.
