Nokia Launches Lumia 920T (for China) And Lumia 620, Running Windows Phone 8
Nokia has launched two more devices, one a China-specific version of the Lumia 920, and the other is a Lumia 620, a low end device.
The Lumia 920T is basically the same Lumia 920, except it supports China’s TD-SCDMA bands. Nokia launched it at an event in Guangzhou, along with China Mobile. China is the largest smartphone market, and China Mobile is the biggest telecom provider of the country, so this deal should help Nokia quite a bit.
No price was announced, however they did mention that it would be available for order by the end of the year. Colours available are – Black, White, Red and Yellow.
Moving on, the company also announced the Lumia 620, Nokia’s new low-end Windows Phone, running on the latest version of the OS, WP8. It comes with a dual core processor and 8 GB internal memory. Here are the specs -
- Windows Phone 8
- 3.8″ TFT LCD ClearBlack display, WVGA resolution (800×480)
- 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4+ processor, Adreno 305 GPU
- 5 MP camera, LED flash, 720p recording at 30 FPS; front facing VGA camera
- 512 MB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, expandable up to 64 GB with a microSD card
- Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS with GLONASS support
- 1300 mAh battery
For a price of $249 (before taxes and subsidies), this is a great package. And the very fact that it runs Windows Phone 8 makes it even better. Honestly, you can’t ask for more.
The Lumia 620 will be out in Lime Green, Orange, Magenta, Yellow, Cyan, White and Black. It will be available starting to buy in Asia in January (that’s fast!) and will be available in Europe and other markets in the first quarter of 2013.
