Nokia Lumia 810 gets announced as a T-Mobile exclusive. It’s a slightly tweaked Lumia 820
T-Mobile has just announced the Nokia Lumia 810, an exclusive smartphone based on the Lumia 820 that was announced for international markets (and AT&T in the US). The Lumia 810 however looks nothing like the Lumia 820, having a profile more reminiscent of certain iPhones or iPhone-mimicking Android devices. It’s probably safe to assume that T-Mobile influenced this design, since it isn’t close to anything Nokia has released in recent times.
The Lumia 810 has specs very similar to the 820, with some notable additions. For example, there’s a 1.2 MP wide-angle ‘Skype certified’ front-facing camera present that can record or stream 720p HD video, and an 1,800 mAh battery (that’s 150 mAh more than the 820’s).
Otherwise, it’s the same package despite the different outer shell. So, the Nokia Lumia 810 comes with Windows Phone 8 running the show, a 4.3-inch 480×800 ClearBlack OLED touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics, and, we assume, the 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor present in both the 920 and the 820 (although this isn’t mentioned in the official press release).
The Lumia 810 will come with exchangeable shells in cyan and black, and will be in stores “in the coming weeks”. We’ll bring you more details about this device as soon as we can.
