If you are a Nokia fan, and hoping to buy a Lumia 820 smartphone, however, waiting for a discount on the handset, your wait is over. The Finnish handset manufacturer has recently announced a price cut on the handset by up to 17%.
Reportedly, Nokia could have taken the step in line with the company's plans to release its new models - Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 also based on Windows Phone 8. As per the listing made on Nokia Shop, the official Nokia eStore, Lumia 820 is listed at Rs 23,969, which is 17% lesser than its original price.
As Nokia has come up with entry-level and mid-range Windows Phone 8 offerings, it can be said that the vendor is hoping to achieve great heights with the handsets. The company, which was once regarded the largest mobile phone maker is now struggling to maintain its position in the competitive smartphone market segment.
Hence, Nokia is now trying hard to regain its lost foothold in the market by focusing on its partnership with Microsoft in releasing smartphones based on the WP8 platform.
Not only Nokia Shop, but a handful of online retailers have also listed the WP8 smartphone at a reduced price tag.
Before taking a look at the online sites offering price cut on Lumia 820, here is a reminder on the specs of the handset. Lumia 820 packs a 4.3 inch AMOLED ClearBlack capacitive touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels. The handset has a 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 8MP camera with the PureView technology, a VGA front camera video calling, NFC and 1,650 mAh Li-ion battery.
