Nokia's Windows Phone 8 handset is arriving a week earlier than we thought.
Nokia first announced the Windows Phone 8-powered Lumia 920 back in September. However, the phone couldn't very well launch without Windows Phone 8, could it? However, Microsoft finally launched the newest iteration of Windows Phone earlier this week, which means the Lumia 920 is cleared for landing. In fact, it's arriving in the UK this week.
Originally thought to be launching in the UK on November 9, Nokia has told Pocket-Lint that the phone will actually be available in stores tomorrow, November 2. The 920 will be in EE shops from tomorrow, while the Lumia 820 will arrive on November 9.
The Lumia 920 boasts a 4.5-inch display, a 1.5GHz processor (dual core), Adreno 225 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. The phone will also feature one of Nokia's PureView cameras, though it will be an 8.7-megapixel sensor, as opposed to the 41-megapixel sensor we saw in the 808 PureView earlier this year. There's also Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi802.11a/b/g/n, 4G LTE, NFC, microUSB v2.0, and GPS.
The phone will be available in yellow, black, white, and red through EE and will set you back £20 when signing up for a £46-a-month contract.
[UPDATE] Reader Gareth says he went to three EE stores today and none of them had the phone. Additionally, he was told they'll only have it in black on launch as well as the EE-exclusive white. We've emailed both Nokia and EE for clarification on this one. We'll keep you posted.
