Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 now available for P18,990

Nokia just officially announced the availability of their mid-range Windows Phone 8 handset, the Lumia 820, in the market which will retail for Php18,990.

Nokia Lumia 820The Nokia Lumia 820 is a far cry from the Lumia 800 in terms of design. Gone is the unibody polycarbonate shell with the off-center rear camera which is a staple of first-generation Lumias. The Lumia 820 instead has a plasticky chassis with a semi-glossy finish and rounded corners. Nokia went back to its roots by making the rear panel of the Lumia 820 replaceable instead.

This phone has a 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen with an 800 x 480 resolution for a decent 217 ppi pixel density. Running the show is a 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (Krait) processor that is almost comparable to last year’s quad-core chips. It has 1GB RAM and 8GB worth of internal storage. What’s nice here is that this phone sports a microSD slot which is something that’s missing from the high-end Lumia 920.

There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and dual-LED flash. Front camera is limited to VGA quality though. Aside from the usual Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, the Lumia 820 also supports NFC and wireless charging.

The Nokia Lumia 820 is already available in selected Nokia stores in different colors: white, black, red and yellow.

    kailan ka ba mapapa sa akin.. =D

    tiis muna sa windows 7.5..

    • I watched NBA LIVE yesterday morning and one commercials which was the Windows phone only cost US$99.00. P18,990??? so expensive! more tha 4 times.

      • it’s %99.00 under contract IMO.. so para kang nag plan nyan..

        tsaka hindi naman dapat 1:1 ang price sa US and PH. syempre may mga tax yan at ibang consideration. and yeah, naka contract yang $99 na yan.

  2. Hope this the 820 that has a 4gLTE chipset that can be unlock using update…

      an LTE phone would carry a higher price tag. According to Spec. Sheet, the Lumia 820 does not have LTE. I think that LG Nexus4 is the better choice for that price range.

  3. Went to Nokia in Mall of Asia excited to buy the unit. Tested it and liked it enough, only to find out they charge more than the published price, Cash was 19,500 and Card price was 20,890. Sorry, I won’t pay more than advertised. I left thinking maybe Cherry Mobile might release a good LTE phone soon, I can wait for that.
