Nokia Lumia 820: Your Questions Answered (Shells, SD Cards, TV Out and More)

September 28, 2012 3 Comments

Thanks to Ben and the guys over at Nokia Connect, we had a chance to ask questions directly to the project team in charge of the Lumia 820.

Nothing crazy was announced but we did get a more personal and exact view of the Lumia 820.

  • The shell is made of the same PC/ABS material
  • SD Cards not hot-swappable – the battery needs to be removed in order to access the memory card
  • Lumia 820 supports up to 64GB microSD cards. SD XC is also supported
  • Front Facing Camera:  30 FPS
  • “In the Lumia 820 we are completely changing the camera UI and the integration between the HW and SW. while the camera module will be the same, the experience for our consumer will be greatly improved and new
  • “we’ve seen a number of operator announcements in recent days and expect more in coming weeks :-)
  • wireless charging – “it’s really an operator decision on how it’s bundled or packaged so we can’t say what they will be doing / planning atm “
  • “when we are looking at display resolutions, we need to carefully consider resolution together with the display size and the physical dimensions of the product. for the size of the display we have for the Lumia 820, we chose the “standard” WP resolution due to the facts that it provides a much better readability for our consumers on the display size and due to the fact that the performance, mainly FPS, is something amazing in the new Lumia 820 OLED display with that specific resolution. The display experience is much more than resolution as we see on the Lumia 820 ClearBlack display and Nokia specific
    features like Sunlight Readability Enhancement “
  • Accessories: The JBL PlayUp Portable Wireless Speaker for Nokia is expected to sell for approximately €149 and the JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker for Nokia is expected to sell for approximately €299. Both will begin selling later in the year.
  • On standard USB port: thelocation of the USB port was done through a careful consideration of the designand we chose that location because of the ease of access and visual appeal – the same approach applies for both Lumia 820 and Lumia 920
  • “Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 support also the older Nokia multimedia headsets. we have incorporated an audio jack that is capable of handling both OMTP and AHJ headsets”
  • the MicroSD is visible in 2 ways: there is a specific set of settings for it: you can set which data is stored in the card and also you are able to see free space on the card. secondly, in the apps, for example Gallery, the data in the device and card are shown to the user – so you can see all your content regardless where it is stored
  • TV OUT: DLNA planned currently and we are looking in the area what would be the right technologies and experiences going forward
  • Speakers: we have a totally new loudspeaker element on the Lumia 820 – the improvement is considerable compared to example Lumia 800
  • Matte vs Glossy: we have both glossy and matt covers for Lumia 820. the standard covers are glossy while the wireless charging and protective covers are matt – so it is really up to the consumers on which one they prefer
  • Resolution: “we had a similar question earlier on today: when we are looking at display resolutions, we need to carefully consider resolution together with the display size. for the size of the display we have for the Lumia 820, we chose the “standard” WP resolution due to the facts that it provides a much better readability for our consumers on the display size and due to the fact that the performance, mainly FPS, is something amazing in the new Lumia 820 OLED display with that specific resolution. The display experience is much more than resolution as we see on the Lumia 820 ClearBlack display and Nokia specific features like Sunlight Readability Enhancement”
  • 3rd Party Shells: the Lumia 820 interchangeable shells allow 3rd party innovation and we welcome that as it will only build up our great ecosystem. what comes to wireless charging, we are using the open Qi standard and we want more and more companies to join in creating great products for our consumers

 

We will break this down later as we might get more answers through email… stay tuned!
