The Nokia Lumia 920T is, reportedly, the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone to reach China and that’s a thing to take pride in. But with a customer base of over 700 million, China Mobile is also the world’s biggest carrier so the launch of the Lumia 920T there may also be a life-saver for the ailing Nokia.

Specs-wise, the Nokia 920T is identical to the international version, but it’s specifically made to work on China’s TD-CDMA network and comes with a handful of software customizations for the Chinese market.

The Chinese Windows Marketplace has some 50K apps on tap, but customers will also have access to the Mobile Market, China Mobile’s own app store.

Also Lumia 920T customers will get access to special deals from the location-based service Jiepang by tapping the NFC-enabled device on tags, available in multiple outlets in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.

Air China will also offer wireless charging pads in their VIP lounges.

In the same time Apple is yet to make the iPhone 5 available for the carrier’s customers.

“Technology [the TD-SCDMA network] is a problem, but that’s not all, there is also the business model and the revenue sharing.” – commented the delayed iPhone 5 launch Li Yue, CEO of China Mobile Communications Corporation, in response to a recent press inquiry. Apple and China Mobile are yet to settle the terms of their iPhone 5 deal, but it will be happening sooner or later.

Unfortunately, the Nokia Lumia 920T won’t be coming out in the all-popular cyan color. It will only be available in black, white, yellow and red. The smartphone should launch by the end of the year.

Sohu Digital News has obtained a red Lumia 920T and made some photos of it. The Lumia 920T is destined for China Mobile and the unit in the photos is a prototype. There’s no word when the device will actually launch on China Mobile’s network.

The smartphone sports a glossy red polycarbonate unibody and has TD-SCDMA support. The other (still not officially confirmed) difference between it and the global Lumia 920 is the Adreno 320 GPU inside, in place of the regular 225 that comes with the dual-core Krait chip.

The rest of specs should be identical – the gorgeous 4.5″ PureMotion display at the front, the PureView-branded 8.7 MP camera at the back and the Windows Phone 8 OS inside .
