The Nokia Lumia 820 is a cheaper alternative to the new Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone. Like its bigger sibling, the 820 will have a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor and Windows Phone 8 software.

But it will be a little smaller, with a 4.3 inch display, and it has a 5MP camera instead of an 8.7MP camera.

Nokia Lumia 820

There is one thing that makes the Nokia Lumia 820 stand out — the rear cover can be removed and replaced with a different shell.

Not only does that let you change the color of your handset, but it also lets you change the functionality. For instance, you can add a shell that lets you use a wireless charging pad to charge the phone’s battery.

That’s a feature that comes built into every Nokia Lumia 920 phone, but it’s just an optional feature for the 820.

  1. Um, does this phone run Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone 7? The headline currently says “Windows Phone 7”, but the “Key Specs” section says “Windows Phone (8)”. I assume the headline has a typo, and it’s really “8”.
