Nokia Middle East recently announced the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 will be available in UAE and Saudi Arabia starting this month.These are the two countries in the Middle East out of six, which are expected to receive both Windows Phone 8 devices.
“The Middle East is one of the top key markets for Nokia and continues to be strongly committed to this region. This is testament to UAE and Saudi Arabia being among the six global markets for Nokia to introduce the new Lumia range with Arabic language capabilities with strong operator offerings and retail presence,” said Nokia Middle East Vice President, Tom Farrell.
Customers waiting to the hotly-anticipated devices to go on sale in Saudi Arabia should know the Nokia Lumia 920 will come in yellow, red, grey, white and black, while the Lumia 820 will be available in red, yellow, grey, cyan, purple, white and black.
According to Nokia Saudi Arabia General Manager, Mandar Bhide, both smartphones will be available at all the leading electronic retail outlets across the country starting November 23.
Nokia Lumia 920 will be available for purchase for SAR 2499/$665/€525, whereas the Lumia 820 will be much cheaper at SAR 1899/$505/€400. Obviously, these are no-term prices.
The most powerful Windows Phone 8 handset on the market, Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a hyper-vibrant 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ capacitive touchscreen display that supports 768 x 1280 pixels resolution.
The Lumia 820 only packs a 4.3-inch AMOLED capacitive display with 480 x 800 pixels resolution, which is based on ClearBlack display technology.
“The availability of a user interface in the local language combined with strong operator offerings are two key elements in satisfying demands of consumers from the region. We are confident that the most innovative smartphone — the Lumia 920 will be a milestone for the company as a whole,” Farell concluded.
