I proudly owned and tested a Nokia Lumia 800 for quite some time throughout late 2011 and most of 2012, so I was thrilled to hear that Nokia was continuing the line with today’s announcement of the Lumia 820, the little brother of the Lumia 920.
The two phones share much in common – the Lumia 820, like the 920, features a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, a capacitive touch screen that’s able to be used while even wearing gloves, as well as a microSD card slot. There are some differences though – the Lumia 820 features a smaller 4.3″ display (though that is still considerably larger than the Lumia 800′s 3.7″ display, a size I absolutely fell in love with), a smaller 8GB of internal storage, and a 5 MP camera with not PureView lenses, but Carl Zeiss.
The design has also been substantially changed this time around. While the 920 kept its younger brother’s dashing good looks, the 820 goes for a decidedly different – and dare I say it, lower end sort of feeling that doesn’t look wholly bad, just a little plain. Nokia’s also announced that the back side is totally removable, allowing users to swap in and out different colored backs depending on what suits their fancy at that moment.
The Nokia Lumia 820 will be coming to AT&T and T-Mobile later this year, though pricing has yet to be confirmed.
