The Nokia Lumia 920 is now official as the Finnish company unveiled one of their first Windows Phone 8 device to the public during their recently-held Nokia World 2012.
This new flagship phone will be packing a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU (Krait) which is fairly comparable to quad-core chips such as NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 in some benchmark tests. RAM is at 1GB while internal storage is at 32GB with no room for a microSD.
It will also have the same curved glass design as the Lumia 900 in front but a glossy finish on its back instead of the premium matte finish that we love from before. You’ll get a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display which has a 1280 x 768 resolution and is 25% brighter than the best panels out in the market. It’s like their ClearBlack display on steroids.
Nokia also demonstrated the screen’s “œSuper Sensitive Touch” which lets you play with it even when you’re wearing gloves. A very practical feature not found in capacitive touch screens.
Nokia puts the PureView name on the 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss optics of the Lumia 920 even though it’s not the same as the Nokia PureView 808. It promises good hardware image stabilization and impressive low-light performance though from what the company calls “œfloating lens”.
You’ll also get NFC support here, LTE connectivity, and Nokia’s largest battery ever (2000mAh) plus wireless charging via Qi technology and a number of wireless charging accessories that they also showcased.
