AT&T just announced that the Windows Phone 8 smartphones, the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 will be exclusive to the carrier in the States.
The flagship Lumia 920 is Nokia’s first Windows Phone 8 device, which also means its one of the first Windows Phones to pack some impressive hardware. It has a 4.5-inch curved glass touchscreen, a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 chip, 32GB of storage, and an 8-megapixel camera. The Lumia 820 is a little smaller with a 4.3-inch display and is being billed as a mid-range smartphone. The stand out feature for both is wireless charging support.
Jeff Bradley, senior vice president of Devices and Developer Services at AT&T Mobility said, “Exclusive to our customers and featuring unique innovations in imaging technology, wireless charging and a bright, sensitive display – all on the nation’s largest 4G network – the Lumia 920 will be one of the hottest phones for the holidays,”
AT&T continues to position itself as the leading Windows Phone 8 carrier and reminded us in its press release that it has sold more Windows Phones than any other carrier to date. It will also offer the HTC 8X.
Both the Lumia 920 and 820 will feature Nokia’s City Lens AR overlay and benefit from all the new features Windows Phone 8 has to offer. The 920 comes in red, white, black, yellow, and cyan; the 820 comes in black.
There’s no word on release date or pricing beyond the fact that the new devices will hit shelves sometime this autumn.
