More info on Nokia Lumia 820 revealed

While the Lumia 920 has perhaps gotten the lion's share of attention from the media, Nokia does have another Windows Phone 8 device coming this fall in the Lumia 820. This week, the company held a blogger Q&A with two Nokia reps that gave some more information about the entry level Lumia 820.

WMPoweruser.com reports that, according to Nokia, the camera hardware inside the Lumia 820 is the same that can be found in the current Lumia 900. However, Nokia also claims that the camera software has been improved for use on the Lumia 820.

While much has been made of the interchangeable shells of the device, Nokia does not yet offer one that is both rugged and has support for the wireless charging features. The Q&A says that Nokia will look into offering a Lumia 820 case that has both in the future.

The Lumia 820 also has a small battery but Nokia claims that the smartphone will still have a solid battery life, thanks in part to "improved power management capabilities" in the the device. The Q&A also revealed that Lumia 820 will support 64 GB MicroSD cards.

While Nokia is still not commenting on price points or release dates, the Lumia 820 is still likely to be launched sometime later this fall.

If the hardware inside 820 is same as current 900, how was it claimed that 900 won't get WinPhone 8.0 because of hardware limitations

Anyways, i really like 820 design over 920 design, wish they were same devices in different form factors (with obvious screen size and battery size difference).

Quote from the article: "the camera hardware inside the Lumia 820 is the same that can be found in the current Lumia 900"... not the entire hardware! The processor inside the 820 is much more powerful than the processor in the Lumia 900, for a start.

Nokia, three things I need in order to come back:
1) A camera that is as good as or an upgrade to that of the N8
2) WP8 or Android 4.1
3) A design that does not look like a sleek sexy curved phone that has been placed inside a coloured block.

All of this should be easy and would result in total market share

1) I will look into this
2) Yep we all knew that was a given
3) Coming in black still means its in a black coloured block.

I grew up with Nokia, I want to go to them above anyone else but i have to make sure Im getting something I want.

So rather than having a nice looking Nokia phone you'd rather have a bland grey plastic thing?

Why in the heck did they give the 820 a micro SD slot, but not the Flagship 920?

That is the one thing that really gripes me about the 920!

its been answered, it was a design choice to limit the number of breaks (visual breaks in lines and form) and holes in the chasis.

And also it has 32 gb internal storage (if i'm right), so there is no need for any expand.

I have a Nokia N97 with 32GB internal, but I've still used the microSD slot to add another 16GB. Some people (obviously not the majority) want to have expandable storage.

And size. You seen how thick the 920 is?
