Nokia continues its venture into Windows Phone 8 with the unveiling of the Lumia 820, which comes on the heels of the preview of the Lumia 920 we brought to you yesterday. While the 820 is a bit smaller than the 920 – it has a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 ClearBlack OLED flat screen display versus 4.5-inch – inside you’ll find many of the same specs and features, including a 1.5GHz Dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, hotspot support, and 8GB of memory, that make this a solid contender amidst all the other announcements being made this month in the mobile universe. Nokia has also chose to go with a rear 8-megapixel camera lens that sits in the center of the phone, boasting auto-focus, Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, and a wide aperture, but unfortunately is lacking the PureView photo-enhancing technology seen in the 920. The Lumia 820 does, however, come with seven different color shells with each phone to help you customize it to your taste, some of which will support wireless charging.
As of now, there’s no word on pricing or availability of the Lumia 820, but you can probably expect it to begin shipping shortly after the arrival of Windows Phone 8 in late October.
