Nokia Lumia 820 was launched alongside the Lumia 920 into the Nokia Lumia line of smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8. Nokia Lumia 820 is a mid-range smartphone, but delivers great performance, powered by the same 1.5GHz dual-core processor on Nokia Lumia 820 and the same 1GB RAM. It also features Nokia City Lens, 4.3-inch display and 4G LTE.
A Stylish and Powerful Smartphone
Nokia Lumia 820 comes in the familiar polycarbonate body (with the shell on) of earlier Nokia Lumia phones. It combines a 1.5GHz processor and a 1GB RAM with the Windows Phone 8 (same as Nokia Lumia 920) to deliver impressive performance. This phone is expected to be as responsive as earlier Windows Phone smartphones from Nokia.
It comes ready for business with Microsoft Office apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as Microsoft Outlook. Nokia Lumia 820 also comes with social media integration, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music, plus Nokia Drive that offers free turn-by-turn navigation, and Nokia City Lens, a cool augmented reality/navigation app that offers information about points of interest in your surrounding when you point the camera at them.
Display & Camera
Nokia Lumia 820 features a 4.3-inch AMOLED Clearback display, larger than the 3.7-inch on the Nokia Lumia 800. The display offers a resolution of 800 × 480 pixels. Like on all high-end and medium range Lumia Phones as well as the Nokia N9, the AMOLED display comes with a polarised glass, but this time the edges are flat rather than curved.
Nokia Lumia 820 comes with an 8 megapixel camera with full HD video recording. It also features autofocus, touch focus, a dual-LED flash for shooting in locations with poor lighting, Carl Zeiss Optics, face Recognition, red eye reduction, geo-tagging, and so on. A secondary VGA camera is also integrated.
Wireless Charging that adds colour
Nokia Lumia 820 supports wireless charging. However, this functionality is added via its colourful changeable shell. The changeable shells come in different colours. Place the Nokia Lumia 820 wrapped in its shell on a charging plate to top up your battery without plugging anything into it.
Nokia Lumia 820 supports penta-band 4G LTE for super fast internet access offering downloads of up to 100Mbps (up to 50Mbps upload). In the Absence of 4G coverage, Lumia 820 offers the next best thing: quadband HSPA+ with up to 4 2.2Mbps download speed. Outside 3G/4G coverage the Lumia 820 supports GSM with data services on GPRS and EDGE. It also supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n for connecting over WLAN networks.
Pricing and availability
Nokia Lumia 820 is available for sale in Nigeria at a price of between N46,000 and N56,000. The Windows phone 8 device can also be ordered at the leading Nigerian online store. Compare Nokia Lumia 820 Prices in Nigeria
