Packing a fast 1.5GHz processor inside and a large 4.3-inch (480 x 800 pixel resolution) touchscreen display on the front, the smartphone can deliver high-end features to all those who will choose to purchase it.
Nokia also included an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back of this device, with Carl Zeiss optics and support for full HD video recording, thus making it even more appealing.
The Lumia 820 also features 8GB of internal memory, along with a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32GB of external storage. 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage also comes with the new device.
“Lumia 820 is also blessed with plenty of power, and a 1.5GHZ dual-core processor will ensure anything you do will run quickly and efficiently. Whether it’s browsing the web or making the most of Nokia’s native apps, you can rest assured that there’ll be zero hang-ups,” Phones4U notes on its website.
Nokia also included a 1,650mAh battery inside the new mobile phone, along with support for wireless charging. To benefit from the feature, however, users will need to purchase a separate shell for the smartphone, as well as compatible chargers.
