This comes just after MTN and Vodacom added their names to the growing list of operators globally ranging the flagship Windows Phone 8 device.
“Dubbed ‘the world’s most innovative smartphone’, the Nokia Lumia 920 is scheduled to hit South African shores in November” said Nokia in a statement.“With the first wave of Lumia we launched something completely new. We now have a range of four Lumia smartphones in the market and we have been very encouraged by the response from both consumers and our operator partners. We are seeing the same commitment behind the next wave of devices which underscores the momentum behind both Lumia, and the broader Windows ecosystem,” added Gerard Brandjes, Vice-President, Nokia.
This will see the Lumia 820 also being launched before the end of the year.
The Lumia 920 is said to include the latest advances in Nokia PureView imaging innovation, making it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night. In addition to built-in wireless charging, the Nokia 920 also comes with Nokia City Lens, the latest addition to the Nokia location suite and the start of a new augmented reality experience.
Both devices will be available in pentaband LTE with pricing and available colours being announced towards the launch.
