LTE is finally coming to South Africa and it seems that there will be a string of phone releases that support this faster network of the next few months. The Nokia Lumia 920 LTE is one of those phones.
It has been dubbed the world’s most innovative smartphone by some and will be available on both MTN and Vodacom in South Africa. In case you did not know, the Nokia Lumia 920 LTE runs on the Windows Phone 8 OS. The Nokia Lumia 820 will also be released before the end of 2012 in South Africa.
The Nokia Lumia 920 LTE includes the latest advances in Nokia Pureview imaging innovation (which makes it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night). In addition to built-in wireless charging, the Nokia 920 LTE wil also have a Nokia City Lens (the latest addition to the Nokia location suite and the start of a new augmented reality experience).
In case you were wondering, the Nokia Lumia 820 is a snappy, mid-range smartphone that delivers high-end performance in a compact package. It has an exchangeable shell design (making it possible to select from a range of colours) and wireless charging, and beneath the shell is also room to insert a micro SD memory card.
Both phones will be available in Pentaband LTE. Pricing, contract details and available colours will be announced closer to the release date. Check out this Nokia 920 promo video below:
In my opinion, these two phones are not bad at all. The only problem I have with them is the fact they run on the Windows Phone 8 OS. Nokia should’ve considered running Android OS on their devices if you ask me.
