Nokia Lumia 920T for China Mobile formally released

Despite lagging a bit behind other countries, Nokia finally released the Lumia 920 in China on December 5th Beijing time. The first wave is heading to China Mobile, dubbed "Lumia 920T" for the carrier's TD-SCDMA network.

Being China's biggest mobile carrier, China Mobile has about 700 milion subscribers. Because of the unnecessarily weird unique network, many of them suffer a problem of not having cool 3G phones to maximize the potential of their cellular service. The coming of 920T is quite timely.

 

Previously there were rumors around the Lumia 920T, claiming it has a more powerful than average special processor. We've debunked it before, and here it is again: The Lumia 920T sports a 8260A chip, just like every other Lumia 920. No, there's no hidden power, not even when you hit up up down down left right left right B A.

Lumia 920T will come in four color variations: magenta, yellow, white and black. Curiously the cyan version isn't available, breaking Nokia's usual CMYK pattern.

And the device is priced at CNY 4,599 (US$ 739). There's no mentioning of contract price yet. Hopefully China Mobile follow up with a subsidy plan soon, or that price will severely cut down adoption rate.

Aside from regular wireless charging stuff, China Mobile is working with Jiepang (Chinese location-based service, just like Foursquare) to provide NFC-based check-in at airports. This would actually be a nice way to show off your Lumia 920, and prevent user cheating too. Imagine you are waiting for your flight at Beijing Airport. Out of boredom you whip out a Lumia 920, in bright yellow color, and thrust it to a little sticker on a pole. In a beep you check into Jiepang, and send an update to all your linked social network accounts. Posh, isn't it?

NIST says:

According to Wiki the GPU gets bumped up to an Adreno 320. How this translates, I don't know.

PG2G says:

I read that it is the Adreno 305 nit 320

NIST says:

320. There is a Plus, Pro and Prime version of this chip and this variation is considered Pro. MSM8960T. Apparently only the Lumia920T is listed as using it.

Gaichuke says:

And the source for that information is a GSMArena article from around the time that rumor was flying around.

NIST says:

I've furnished a link to the wiki site at the top. I don't know about any rumors.

nkast says:

It says here that 320 has four (4) times the performance of Adreno 225 (lumia920).
https://developer.qualcomm.com/discover/chipsets-and-modems/adreno-gpu
Not only that but it also mention openCL (=DirectCompute) which allow GPU phycics  (similar to Cuda/PhysX) and it's a level 10_0 DirectX feature.

StreetNerd says:

Squadromeo says:

yeh, kind of an odd remark, 'lagging behind other countries'. The 920 is only avaìlable in about 8 or 9 countries.....

Polkka says:

Be patient, this is just a great phone... ;)
 

codedivine says:

Lumia 920T does NOT contain the Adreno 320. WPCentral is correct to point out that there is nothing special about the CPU or GPU in the 920T, it contains the Adreno 225, just like the regular 920.
