Description

Nokia Lumia 822 is a mid-range Windows Phone 8 smartphone and features some decent hardware under the hood, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 dual-core chipset with Adreno 225, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage and an 8 MP rear camera. Of course, the handset will also feature all of Nokia's software add-ons like the Drive+ turn-by-turn navigation with offline maps, City Lens, Music and so on. The screen of the Lumia 822 will measure 4.3 inches and will have a pretty mediocre resolution of 480x800 pixels. Still, this will result in a pixel density of 217 ppi, which isn't that bad.
