After a leaks of Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia finally announced its new flagship phone, the Nokia Lumia 920. It is Nokia’s first device to run Windows Phone 8 OS which features a host of improvements over Windows Phone 7.5. Nokia would have wished to introduce the first Windows Phone 8 device but Samsung beat it to the punch when it announced the Ativ S handset a few days ago at the IFA 2012 event.
The 4.5-inch screen on the Lumia 920 is curved just like the screen on the Lumia 900 but now it’s called PureMotion HD+ display with 1280 x 768 resolution. Nokia says it’s the best smartphone display innovation it has ever made with a resolution that’s better than HD resolution. It’s also said to be the brightest smartphone HD display from Nokia. This display even has a “Super Sensitive Touch” feature that allows functional use even when wearing gloves.
The Lumia 920’s internals sound impressive as well. It has a fast dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU paired with 1GB RAM, 2,000mAh battery, NFC, 32GB internal storage, HSPA+ and LTE in select markets, and an 8.7-megapixel “PureView” camera. PureView here does not actually match the features of the Nokia PureView 808. It’s a dumbed down version but Nokia still assures us that this is still a good camera technology that deserves the PureView badge. It uses a “floating lens” that improves image stabilization and good low-light capabilities.
