Nokia stores and other authorised Nokia retailers will also take pre-orders for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 starting today. Nokia says, the device will be in stores on December 21. Nokia has also confirmed that Celcom will be offering plans for the two newest Lumia smartphones but did not reveal any details. Guess we’ll have to wait until Celcom puts out the word then.

To refresh on the hardware specs, both Lumia 920 and 820 are running on a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor, 1GB of RAM and the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system. What sets them apart is that the Lumia 920 comes with a larger 4.5″ PureMotion HD+ screen, a better 8.7MP PureView camera and a larger 32GB on board storage.
The Lumia 820 in the other hand comes with a smaller 4.3″ screen that does 800×480 pixels resolution, 8MP Camera and 8GB of storage which is can be expanded with microSD.

Nokia’s latest Windows Phone 8 devices – Lumia 920 and 820 is coming soon to Malaysia. DiGi will be one of the telcos offering it on contract and this was revealed with its teaser graphic on its website today.

So far HTC is the only prominent Windows Phone player with its Windows Phone 8X. It was made available recently in a rather quiet fashion with U Mobile as the only telco offering it on contract right now. The next formidable rival would be the Samsung Ativ S which is likely to be released here next year.
Thanks to Tedday for the tip in the comments!
Nokia has finally announced its new line up of Lumia devices with the new Lumia 920 and 820 that runs on the latest Windows Phone 8 OS. Apart from the OS, the latest Lumias have more grunt than before. In the previous line up such as the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900, the single core processor and 512MB of RAM specifications was an Achilles’ heel when it comes to paper comparison. Not any more, as the latest line up now runs on 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processors and 1GB of RAM which puts it on par with today’s smart phone.
Head after the break for a closer look at both models.
