Nokia announced that its flagship Windows Phone 8 device, the Nokia Lumia 920, launched at retail in South Africa today (16 November 2012).

The company will be hosting a launch event for the device in Sandton later today.

According to the spec sheet of the Lumia 920, it has a 4.5-inch WXGA (768×1280) display, 32GB storage, and a 8.7 megapixel “PureView” camera.

Nokia said that this camera also uses advanced floating lens technology, which lets Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) take in five times more light than competing smartphones. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken, Nokia said.

With pentaband LTE support, the Nokia Lumia 920 also supports the frequencies most of SA’s network operators are using for their Long Term Evolution networks.

Nokia’s Lumia 920 is also the fattest and heaviest of the three high-end Windows Phone devices set to launch in SA, weighing in at 185g and measuring 130.2 x 70.8 x 10.7mm.

Competing with the Lumia 920 is HTC’s Windows Phone 8X, which has already become available locally, and the Samsung Ativ S which is set to launch later this month.
