Both smartphones will go on sale in the next few days
Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 have just landed in Ghana. The Finnish company and major carrier MTN have just introduced both Windows Phone 8 devices in the country during a launch event at the Silverbird Cinemas, Accra Mall.DailyGuideGhana reports that the new Lumia smartphones will be available in a range of colors, though no other details are provided. However, we expect the Lumia 920 to be available in red, yellow, black, white and possibly cyan.
Nokia announced that the Lumia 820 would be out on the market in the following colors: Black, Gray, Red, Yellow, White, Blue and Violet. We’re not sure how many of these will be available in Ghana.
There’s no word on pricing options either, but it’s been confirmed that customers that pre-order the smartphone from MTS will receive 200 minutes, 400 SMS and 1GB of mobile data for free for the next 3 months.
The Lumia 920 is already the best-selling Windows Phone 8 device and it will take some time until another Windows Phone handset achieves this level of popularity.
Though we cannot say the same thing about Nokia Lumia 820, the smartphone is more than decent when it comes to hardware.
The smartphone packs the same 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon processor inside the Lumia 920, and features an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 64GB via microSD memory card.
“These are the best devices we have made in the smartphone category and we believe that this is going be much appreciated by our customers. At Nokia, our focus is to bring the very best of technology to our customers which aid, excite and benefit their work and social lives. With the groundbreaking technology incorporated in these devices, we are giving our consumers every reason to switch to Lumia,” said James Rutherfoord, vice president, Nokia West Africa.
