Nokia did not announce a release date or price for its flagship phone on Sept. 5.
Some evidence points that Nokia will be releasing the Lumia 920 sooner than November.
The writer explained:
"This is incredibly cheap for a high-end smart phone and it shows me that the Nokia 920 will be hitting the shelves sooner than many expect it to do so. When Lumia 900 was introduced in the market for the first time, the users could buy it for $100 as long as they agreed to a 2-year AT&T contract. A few months ago, the company reduced the price to $49, which I personally took advantage of, and now it costs the buyers only $10."
What is considered soon though?
Reports recently revealed that the release date for the Lumia 920 will be early as November.
According to GForGames, Word around the campfire is that Microsoft, Nokia and the US carrier are working diligently in order to make a November 2nd launch possible for the Lumia 920. Microsoft is working hard on finalizing Windows Phone 8 and according to some sources, the upcoming mobile operating system is set for RTM (Release to Manufacturing) next week.
Windows Phone 8 should make its debut sometime in October 29th and meanwhile, AT&T is apparently testing the Lumia 920 in its own labs in order to ensure that a November 2nd launch is possible.
Reuters also said that Lumia 920 will be available in November.
Sources at European telecoms operators recently said that Nokia will start selling its new smartphones in November, according to Reuters.
According to PCWorld, other wireless carriers are staying tight-lipped on whether they'll sell any Nokia phones this holiday season. Verizon tells CNet that it will sell "multiple Windows Phones" in the fourth quarter, but says only that it's having "healthy conversations" with Nokia.
The Lumia 920 takes many of the physical design elements from previous generations of Lumia handsets, but improves on internal hardware and display technology. Some of the new tech specs include PureMotion HD+ 4.5 inch display (1280 x 768 resolution), Dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, NFC chip, 2,000mAh battery, and Qi wireless charging. Nokia is touting the Lumia 920′s premier feature as its new camera lens.
It has rounded edges and colorful covers with a PureView camera and runs on Windows Phone 8.
Apple's new iPhone 5 might have Apple fans going crazy, but many are suggesting that Nokia and Samsung provide real competition for the tech giant.
According to the Examiner, speaking of the Galaxy Note 2 and the Lumia 920, "These two powerful smartphones are comfortably positioned to steal some market share from Apple."
A report by ZDNet gives seven reasons to buy the Nokia Lumia 920 instead of any other device: PureMotion HD+ display, PureView camera technology, Nokia Maps, Windows Phone 8, Qi wireless charging, Nokia Music, and Color Selection.
According to a poll, "Which smartphone would you buy?" Samsung's Galaxy S3 dominated with 1,803 votes against Apple's iPhone 5's 337 votes. This shows that many are over Apple and are willing to get something new.
