Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, Nokia’s first handsets to arrive on shelves with Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 operating system loaded on them, will also offer support for 4G LTE networks when made available.
They are not the first handsets to provide users with this capability, but they are offering it to more users around the world, and are also the most appealing such Nokia devices.
“A similar transformation is now happening to smartphones and the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are fully equipped to let you take full advantage of the new high-speed networks,” a post on Nokia Conversations reads.
“These new generation operator networks are called LTE (Long Term Evolution) or 4G/LTE. Although you may hear different people using the different names, they are both essentially the same thing.”
On these networks, Nokia’s new Lumia devices will provide users with the possibility to easily download large files or to stream HD videos while on the go. Video chatting should work like a charm too, said blog post continues.
These features are not available at all wireless carriers out there, but those who have deployed 4G/LTE can provide users with enhanced mobile data speeds.
However, Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices have been designed so as to provide users with appealing performance even when connected to 3G networks, the aforementioned blog post reads.
“Even when using 3G networks, your new Lumia will be an extremely responsive and speedy performer thanks to the Snapdragon S4 processor and Windows Phone 8 operating system,” Nokia Conversations’ Boc Ly notes.
“And once 4G/LTE is available from your operator network, Nokia and your local operator will release an over-the-air (OTA) update that will enable your phone to connect to the new high-speed network.”
