The baby brother for the Lumia 920, theNokia Lumia 820 was also revealed. Featuring much of the same features as the 920 like the apps, Windows Phone 8 and dual-core processor; the Lumia 820 features an unique versatile design that lets you change the colour of the phone, even after purchase.

The Lumia 820 features an exchangeable shell design, meaning that you can rip off the old case and add a new one – from red to black, or yellow to grey. This means that you are not locked into one colour when you buy your phone, and you can change it to suit a particular mood. Removing the shell also exposed a slot to insert a microSD memory card.

The Lumia 820 also features NFC and wireless charging; and has the same City Lens applications. However, being the baby brother, it has a slightly smaller 4.3-inch screen and has its current ClearBlack technology. Hardware-wise, the phone features a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor, and support for LTE (and on Australia’s 1800MHz bands). There is an 8-megapixel rear camera and VGA front-facing camera on board; however, it does not feature its PureView camera technology.

No release date has been announced by Nokia – with those details to be confirmed later in the year in “select markets”. No word as well on Australian availability – we’ll try and ask in the morning. Full gallery is below.
