During the Windows Phone 8 announcement on 29 October 2012, Steve Ballmer announced the release of the Lumia 822 alongside various other Windows Phone 8 smartphones, such as the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 920. It is considered to be a carrier based variant of the Nokia Lumia 820, with some specific carrier variants, such as the support for LTE networks. The Nokia Lumia 822 was actually released for sale on November 15, 2012.
On 18 February 2014, the Nokia Lumia 822 received the 'Black' firmware update (revision number 3051.40000.1352.0042), and it receive the 'DENIM' firmware update that introduces Windows 8.1.
