Nokia just announced its next-generation Windows Phone 8 devices: the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. Both are pentaband devices (available in both LTE and HSPA+ versions later this year, Q4 to be exact), powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 SoC running at 1.5GHz. The 920 features an 8.7MP rear facing camera with optical image stabilization and F/2.0 lens. Around front is 1.2MP F/2.4. The 820 has no OIS for the 8MP rear facing camera and a VGA front facing camera.

Both phones support wireless charging via the Qi standard. The 920 has an integrated 2000mAh battery, while the 820 has a smaller, removable, 1650mAh battery.

The 920 features a 4.5-inch WXGA IPS LCD, while the 820 uses a 4.3-inch OLED WVGA panel.

    ...why give the 820 a lower number than the obviously inferior (and older) 900? Surely 910 would've made more sense here? Reply

    It's their new mid-range model, which is the 800-series, therefore it's the 820. Besides, there's no point quibbling about model numbers. Most model numbering systems are obviously not meant to make any sense to the general customer (look at Intel and Nvidia, for instance. Reply
