Both phones should land on shelves in early November
Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has made its Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 handsets available in one more market, namely Nigeria, where the phones are now up for reservations.The new mobile phones will be available on the network of wireless carrier MTN, each bundled with six months of free internet access.
However, it seems that the handsets won’t be reaching users until early next year, at least this is what a recent article on AllAfrica.com reads.
At the launch event, Nokia’s Vice President, Nokia West Africa, James Rutherfoord, reportedly said that the two new smartphones were designed to prove great options for both business users and consumers.
“These are the best devices we have made in the smartphone category and we believe that this is going be much appreciated by our consumers. At Nokia, our focus is to bring the very best of technology to our consumers which aid, excite and benefit their work and social lives,” he said.
“With the groundbreaking technology incorporated in these devices, we are giving consumers every reason to switch to Lumia.”
“What’s more, we are also giving them the opportunity to pre-order the devices on Jumia.com, along with the chance to win a wireless charger or other cool Nokia accessories at discounted prices,” Rutherfoord added.
Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are available for pre-order at the moment both on MTN’s website as well as through the carrier’s stores. Customers who place orders in advance will receive special discounts when it comes to purchasing accessories for these smartphones.
Nokia has packed Lumia 920 with a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ touchscreen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel PureView photo snapper on the back, NFC, LTE, wireless charging and the like.
