Nokia Lumia 820 Unveiled — 4.3-inch CBD Display, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4, 8MP Carl Zeiss and WP8

Along with the Lumia 920, Nokia also announced a mid-range Lumia handset for the masses running Windows Phone 8 — the Lumia 820. The Lumia 820 comes with a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display with WVGA (800×480) resolution. Like the display on the Lumia 920, the AMOLED display on the Lumia 820 also packs in sunlight readability enhancements with a high brightness mode.

Even though the Lumia 820 sports similar design to the Lumia 920, it does not come with unibody construction. This, however, allows the handset to feature exchangeable back covers that also allow adding missing features like wireless charging.

Internally, the Lumia 820 packs in the same internals as the 920, which includes a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, and an Adreno 225 GPU. Other specs of the handset include 8GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi b/g/n. GPS with A-GPS, a front-facing VGA camera, and an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics aided by dual-LED flash but without the Pure View technology. The handset is also capable of recording videos at Full HD (1080p) resolution at 30FPS. The 1650mAh battery inside the Lumia 820 should hopefully be sufficient enough to make sure the handset lasts a full day on a single charge.

The Qualcomm baseband allows the Lumia 820 to support pentaband LTE. Sadly, the Lumia 820 will only be available sometime in Q4 of this year, at a yet to be announced price, in a bunch of colors including red, yellow, grey, cyan, purple, white and black.

Both the Lumia handsets will also come with some exclusive apps including Angry Birds Roost from Rovio.
