Yesterday, AT&T unveiled the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 in New York City. At first, it was considered as a rumor but AT&T announced the smartphones as expected. AT&T will start selling these two latest Lumia smartphones in November, making it the first carrier to commit to the devices in the United States. In that event, it was also revealed that Nokia Lumia 920 will be an AT&T exclusive.
These two devices run on Windows Phone 8 operating system, Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system, hoping to compete with the Android-iOS duo.
On Thursday’s event, AT&T not only added Lumia 920 and 820 on their device line-up starting in November but also will start selling a Samsung Galaxy Camera, features with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a super-bright 16MP BSI CMOS sensor with 4G internet connectivity.
The Nokia Lumia 920 includes the latest advances in Nokia PureView imaging innovation. The 8 megapixel rear-facing camera records HD video in 1080p at 30 frames per second, while the front-facing camera records in 720p HD. Using advanced floating lens technology, the camera in the Lumia 920 is able to take in five times more light than typical smartphones without using flash, making it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors, and at night.
The US carrier, AT&T said that the Lumia 920 is “exclusive to our customers” but does not mention the Lumia 820, which indicates that the lower-end Lumia smartphone will be available on other carriers.
AT&T will run on its 4G network both the Lumia 920 and 820. The Lumia 920 will be available in red, white, black, yellow and cyan. The Lumia 820 will be available in a single black, although users can purchase Nokia’s removable colored back covers to customize the phone.
AT&T did not give any specific release date beyond November and its pricing also.
