Nokia Lumia 920 will be free (on contract) at China Unicom

Last week, we told you that China Mobile (the world’s largest mobile carrier) is generously subsidizing the Nokia Lumia 920T – its first Windows Phone 8 device, which will go on sale in China starting next month, for as low as 1 yuan on contract.

And now we’re hearing that the Lumia 920 will be sold by a Chinese mobile carrier, too, namely China Unicom (we initially thought the handset was going to be available only unlocked in the country).

Reportedly, China Unicom’s Lumia 920 will be offered for free on plans starting at 386 yuan ($62) with a new 2 year contract agreement. Customers will also be able to get the handset for free on 3-year contracts (286 yuan per month). Without contract, the new smartphone will cost 4,599 yuan (about $738).

The Lumia 920 and its TD-SCDMA version (920T) are Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 8 devices. Features include a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ IPS display with 1280 x 768 pixels, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n,  dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable internal memory, 2,000 mAh battery, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and an 8.7MP PureView rear camera.

The cheaper Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 620 are also going to be available across China, but there’s no word if any carrier will sell them.

    I think it’s a bad news for Nokia, why discount the prices if the phones were selling like hotcakes?
