China Mobile’s Nokia Lumia 920T to be launched on December 5. HTC 8X and 8S headed to China next month, too
We’ve heard a lot about China Mobile’s Lumia 920T lately, and now it is almost time for the smartphone to be officially launched.
Numerous Chinese websites, including CNMO, are reporting that China Mobile (the world’s largest mobile carrier in terms of subscribers) and Nokia will host a Lumia 920T launch event on December 5. The handset will probably go on sale shortly after that.
Unlike the Lumia 920 that’s already available in Europe, North America or Hong Kong, the 920T comes with enhanced graphics (Adreno 320 instead of Adreno 225) and TD-SCDMA / TD-LTE connectivity. Other than that, it’s basically the same device. It will be available in various color versions (red and black being among them).
While the Nokia Lumia 920T, with its excellent 8.7MP PureView camera, will certainly attract many Chinese customers, it isn’t the only Windows Phone 8 handset that’s going to be available in China. According to Winp, HTC is getting ready to officially introduce its 8X and 8S WP8 devices in Beijing on December 6. It’s not clear when the two will be available, though. Moreover, there is no word if HTC has reached any agreement with a Chinese carrier (it doesn’t have too many options anyway – just China Unicom and China Telecom, alongside the already mentioned China Mobile).
