Nokia Lumia 920 for AT&T dropped by wearing a shiny yellow outfit, here is the hands-on

For the second time this year, we have an AT&T branded Nokia flagship on our hands. The screaming yellow colored, LTE packing Nokia Lumia 920 is the Finnish company’s latest and greatest creation, booting Microsoft Windows Phone 8. The handset is of vital importance for both Nokia and Microsoft – both companies are betting hugely on its commercial success.

Unlike the Windows Phone devices of yesteryear, the Nokia Lumia 920 for AT&T can finally be called a properly powered smartphone. Its dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chipset is snappy by any standard. The same goes for the gig of RAM on board and the 32GB of built-in memory.

A closer look at the Lumia’s display

In terms of design, the Nokia Lumia 920 is almost impossible to tell apart from its predecessor, save for the different Windows logo design and glossy finish. The newcomer has grown in measures quite significantly though. They are 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm, while its weight tips the scale at the hefty 185 grams.
