Lumia 820 will be the budget smartphone with Windows Phone 8. A characteristic feature of this model is nicely rounded body with juicy colours. Lumia 820 uses a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, and the system interface presents us ClearBlack OLED screen with a resolution of 800x480 pixels. For lovers of photography there is an 8-megapixel camera with Zeiss optics and a front VGA webcam. An interesting option is a wireless charging, requiring only the replacement of the back cover. A little disappointing is the capacity of a built-in memory (8 GB), but it could be increased with a microSD card and you'll also get an additional 7GB of storage on Microsoft's cloud service, Skydrive.
will be the flagship model with Windows Phone 8. The phone has a large, 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280x768 and a PureView camera, but only 8 megapixels.
