When Nokia unveiled the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 earlier this month both smartphones were listed as supporting Bluetooth 3.1, not Bluetooth 4.0. However, it looks like Nokia is now going to include support for the latest version of Bluetooth in the Windows smartphones.
WMPowerUser spotted that the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 have appeared as Bluetooth 4.0 certified devices over at Bluetooth.org. That opens up the potential for the smartphones to support new low-power Bluetooth accessories , which wouldn't have been possible had they only supported Bluetooth 3.1.
The Nokia Lumia 920 (pictured above) and the Lumia 820 are Nokia's first Windows Phone 8 smartphones which are due to launch in the 4th quarter of this year. Sadly , we still don't have any more precise details on their launch but they could land as early as October.
One of the most interesting things about the Lumia 920 is that it supports 4G LTE and will be one of the first smartphones to launch on EE's 4G LTE network in the UK. While the Lumia 820 is a more affordable Windows mobile that should offer a good alternative to mid-range Android handsets.
3G will be reviewing the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 as soon as we can get our hands on the mobiles and we'll also bring you all the latest news about Nokia's Windows Phone 8 smartphones when we get fresh information.
