Nokia will be launching the Lumia 920 in Nigeria on November 20. At least that is the interpretation we are giving to a Sunday Afternoon Facebook update by Nokia Nigeria. The Facebook update has an image showing the top right edges of a yellow Windows phone 8 device, which can only be the Nokia Lumia 920 with the text Please share this 🙂 20.11.2012, Everyone loves a comeback.
Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone device from Nokia and the top member of the Nokia Lumia 820 line. It features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch HD display, an 8.7MP camera, and wireless charging.
What about Lumia 820
Although Nokia only showed the image of the Nokia Lumia 920, we believe that its sidekick, the Nokia Lumia 820 will also be announced at the event. It is only natural that the event focuses on the star attraction. However, Nokia Lumia 820 is by no means a pushover. Inside, it has almost similar features as the Lumia 920.
Its major shortcoming compared with the Lumia 920 is in the display and camera department. Nokia Lumia 820 features a 4.3-inch WVGA display and an 8MP camera that is not as impressive as that on the Lumia 920.
The launch of the Nokia Lumia 920 in Nigeria just a few weeks after its official launch is a welcome development. It shows that with increased competition manufacturers are now pushing for every bit of sale they can make.
Update about launch
I can now confirm that the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820 will be launched in Nigeria on Tuesday, November 20, 2012. This new fact is based on the email we got from Nokia inviting us to the launch of the two Windows Phone Smartphones.
