AT&T will carry the upcoming Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone in time for the holidays, the company said Thursday.

The Texas-based network said it will exclusively begin selling Nokia's flagship device in November.

The Lumia 920, which runs on the new Windows Phone 8 operating system, features a 4.5-inch screen and an impressive 8-megapixel camera with technology that is supposed to allow it to shoot steady video and great shots in low-light scenarios.

The phone also features a front-facing camera and near-field communication technology, and runs on a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor.

Additionally, it's to have 32-gigabytes of storage and can be charged wirelessly. It will be available in red, white, black, yellow, and cyan.

Nokia began promoting the Lumia 920 earlier this week with a YouTube video that bashes the Apple iPhone 5's color selection, which is limited to black and white.

Joining the Lumia 920 at AT&T is the Lumia 820, a scaled-down version of the 920. The Lumia 820 will come in black, but its shell can be snapped off and replaced with shells in other colors.

Neither a specific release date nor prices were given for the phones.
