T-Mobile have announced that they will exclusively be stocking the Nokia Lumia 810 in the US, but could this new handset make it across the pond?
The mobile industry was excited to see the result of Nokia’s latest efforts when they produced their first Windows Phone 8 handsets earlier this year. Both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the 820 are set to touch down in the UK as part of the first wave of 4G handsets, so what could the Lumia 810 offer that the 820 doesn’t?
Like the Lumia 820, the 810, which was announced by T-Mobile and Nokia just yesterday, shares in the exchangeable Xpress Cover design, meaning that it too can potentially offer Qi standard wireless charging when twinned with an appropriate case, however it does slightly differ aesthetically from the 820 despite its internal similarities with a particularly minimalist design.
The Nokia Lumia 810 is designed specifically to work on T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSDPA frequency band in the US but aside from this hardware remains relatively unchanged from the Lumia 820. The 810 also utilises a 4.3-inch WVGA ClearBlack OLED display, an 8-megapixel rear facing camera and a 1.2-megapixel front facing shooter. Aside from the higher resolution front facing camera, we don’t know anything more yet, but would that alone be enough to tempt you away from a Lumia 820 in the UK?
