Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia is reportedly gearing up for the release of its Lumia 920 smartphone on shelves in Brazil starting with February 14.
According to a recent report on Gizmodo
, the new handset will hit the market with a price tag of 1,999 Brazilian Real (around $1,000) attached to it, all dressed up in Black.
As WPCentral notes
, although the price tag for the device might seem high, Nokia is also planning on adding a USB portable DC-16 charger to the package, at least for the first customers interested in the pre-order of the device.
Lumia 920 was made official last year as Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, with a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ touchscreen on the front, and with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor packed inside.
Furthermore, the smartphone
arrives on shelves with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory, but no microSD memory card slot to enable users to add extra storage to it.
On the back, Lumia 920 sports an 8-megapixel PureView camera, with image stabilization and full HD video recording capabilities, complemented by a front camera for making video calls.
The handset also sports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, 4G LTE capabilities, NFC, GPS receiver, and the like, along with wireless charging capabilities.
Following Lumia 920’s landing in Brazil in mid-February, Nokia is expected to bring the cheaper Lumia 820 to shelves in the country before the end of the month.
Rumor has it that this Windows Phone 8
-powered smartphone might be released on February 21, and that it might be priced between 1,500 Real ($750 / €558) and 1,600 Real ($800 / €595).
Lumia 820 sports a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, microSD card slot, an 8MP camera on the back, front camera, NFC, and the usual set of connectivity options, but no wireless charging.
