Nokia is pinning its long term future on the Windows Phone platform, and the Finnish manufacturer is currently holding an event with Microsoft to reveal its plans for Windows Phone 8. Only yesterday details leaked about the upcoming Nokia Lumia 920, and now the specs and details for the device have got the official nod.
It was only a few months ago that the company re-entered the US smartphone market to try and regain some market share, and as Engadget are reporting the Lumia 920 is one of the first Windows Phone 8 handsets to be officially unveiled.
The handset features a curved 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ screen that is powered by a dual core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor. Providing the juice for all that power is a 2,000 mAh battery pack, and as we first reported yesterday can be charged wirelessly. Camera wise the Lumia 920 features an eight megapixel rear shooter with PureView technology, which is capable of 1080p video capture.
As it can be seen from the lack of a hump on the back of the device, the PureView is not of the 41-megapixel variety as with the 808 PureView handset, but is more to do with the branding. According to Damian Dinning, Nokia’s Head of Imaging the technology it is more about what is done with the optics and pixels of the image.
The Nokia Lumia 920 features a floating lens that provides better image stabilization, and it also has some impressive low light capabilities. Nokia has returned to what was seen on the Lumia 800 and the “sinuous tapering”, with glass edges that blend nicely into the body of the device. This handset does seem to be a bit more polished and glossier than the Lumia 800 though, and as thought previously the company has based the charging method on the Qi standard.
