Nokia announces mid-range Lumia 820 with Windows Phone 8

The Lumia 920 doesn’t get all the attention today, as Nokia has also announced the follow-up to the mid-range Lumia 800, the new Lumia 820.

The Lumia 820 features a 4.3-inch WVGA OLED display, 8MP camera, 8GB of built-in storage, as well as a microSD slot for expansion. Inside we’re looking at a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, matching the higher-end Lumia 920. Fans of colourful phones will be pleased to know that the Lumia 820 supports interchangeable rear covers in a variety of colours.

Nokia will also sell covers that will enable the use of its new range of charging accessories, just like its big brother, the Lumia 920, which supports Qi wireless charging with the new “Fat Boy Recharge Pillow”.

While Nokia has not set a release date, it has stated that the Lumia 820 will be available in Q4.
