For Nokia fans who’ve been waiting for the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 in India, there is good news. The devices are likely to be launched in January 2013, reports Tech2. The report also states that the smartphone will support 9 Long Term Evolution (LTE) bands in India
for 4G connectivity. It will not support 4G completely however as 4G is currently run on 2300Mhz in India. Lumia 920 is supporting LTE 2100 Mhz and 2600 Mhz bands, according to Nokia’s website.
This is more that the iPhone 5, which supports only five LTE bands. It seems Nokia India also confirmed this on Twitter when a user, Notebook Grail, asked them about it. You can view the tweet here.
Tech2 has also managed to get their hands on the Nokia Lumia 920 and done a first impressions post of the smartphone. You can view the entire story here.
According to Tech2‘s Roydon Cerejo, the phone has huge potential. He writes:
“After spending about an hour with the handset, we must say that the Lumia 920 has huge potential when it launches in India next month. Nokia is still tight lipped about the pricing, but we’d guess it would be anything between Rs 35,000 to Rs 40,000. The device is built like a tank and the finish and choice of materials easily rivals the top dogs like the One X and even the iPhone 5.
“The hardware is all there and now all that’s left is for the software platform to mature, and fast. Apps are always going to be the deciding factor between platforms, which could offset the sales of the 920 in the start. But even without apps, the Lumia 920 is a good phone and has some powerful imaging capabilities. There are plenty of features in the 920 that we still need to put to the test once we get our hands on a retail unit, but for now, we feel that the Lumia 920 has potential for greatness.”
