New Delhi: The much-awaited Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 are likely to hit store shelves in India by mid-December, according to a source who is familiar with the development. However, the company has not yet confirmed it. Nokia unveiled its first Windows Phone 8 powered smartphones - Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 - in September.

The Lumia 920 is Nokia's new flagship phone. The lenses on its camera shift to compensate for shaky hands, resulting in sharper images in low light and smoother video capture, Nokia said. It can also be charged without being plugged in; the user just places it on a wireless charging pod.

The Lumia 820, on the other hand, is a cheaper, mid-range Windows Phone 8 phone. It doesn't have the special camera lenses, but it sports exchangeable backs so you can switch colors.

Nokia Corp. launched its first Windows phones late last year under the Lumia brand, as the first fruits of Elop's alliance with Microsoft. Those ran Windows Phone 7 software, which is effectively being orphaned in the new version. The older phones can't be upgraded, nor can they run applications written for Windows Phone 8.
