The handset is expected to be launched in China in early December
Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has registered quite a bit of success with its first Windows Phone 8 handset, the Lumia 920, since making it available for purchase in various markets around the world, and it seems that the momentum will continue.The company is also preparing the launch of this device in China, under the name of Lumia 920T, with support for the network of China Mobile.
Having the Windows Phone 8 smartphone available to the world’s largest wireless carrier’s user base should help the company significantly increase Lumia 920 sales.
The phone has already been confirmed to arrive at the wireless carrier, and Nokia and China Mobile have also announced a launch event set for early December, but no other details on the device have been provided.
While expected to sport about the same features and capabilities as the international flavor, the Chinese variant of Lumia 920 is also said to arrive with a series of tweaks specific to the local market.
Some of the latest rumors on the device have also suggested that the phone might arrive on shelves with a Snapdragon MSM8960T S4 Pro chipset packed inside, with an Adreno 320 GPU next to it, representing an upgrade when compared to the initial variant, yet nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
However, a series of new leaked photos with the device provide us with the possibility to learn a bit more on what the phone would look like, courtesy of digi.it.sohu.com.
China Mobile’s logo is visible on the smartphone’s front and back, and shows that it will indeed offer 4G connectivity to users (it will pack both TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA capabilities).
Lumia 920 was made official with a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ touchscreen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel PureView photo snapper on the back, with full HD video recording, front camera for making video calls, GPS receiver, and the like.
