The Nokia Lumia 1020 Available On Pre-order In Germany For €799By cheatmaster 12:29 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments
A couple of German retailers have been found to already offer the Nokia Lumia 1020 on pre-order and both places are advertizing the phone for €799 SIM-free.
This sort of pricing hardly comes as a surprise since the current generation iPhone, which is traditionally the most expensive smartphone to buy, costs €789 for the 32GB version in Germany. And, as we saw with the announced US pricing ($300 with a 2-year contract with AT&T), this time around Nokia considers it has a accurate winner on its hands and is ready to price it as a accurate premium product.
The announcement of the Nokia Lumia 1020 made a gigantic splash in the industry this week. Talking about the phone on stage, Nokia's CEO however only touched briefly upon European availability, saying the phone is coming to key European markets this quarter. And that's that.
In our Nokia Lumia 1020 preview, published earlier this week, we made a wild guess that the Lumia 1020 will cost around a €700 on the Old Continent and we called it "way more than Nokia can afford to charge for its flagship at the moment." The price of €799 is quite steeper, so we are eagerly awaiting to see the actual price at launch.
Unfortunately, the two stores, which have the Lumia 1020 on pre-order, don't have any launch date to suggest, meaning they know as much as we do correct now.
Leaked documents recommdiscontinue that Telefonica (O2 and its sister networks) will be launching the phone in September, so that's as accurate launch date as we are going to acquire correct now.
The same documents recommdiscontinue that the Lumia 1020 will be srecent in a 64GB version on O2 network, so if O2 is your carrier of choice, you might want to abstain from pre-ordering the device from third-party retailers.
If you live in the US on the other hand, and you are thinking of pre-ordering the phone (official pre-orders there start July 16), you would be best getting it from the Microsoft's online store as they would throw in a free capturing camera grip to sweeten the deal.
