Nokia Lumia 920 With Windows Phone 8 Debuts With 4.5-inch HD Display And PureView Camera

Nokia Lumia 920 is now the official flagship of the Nokia Windows Phone 8 line-up, coming with a 4.5-inch display, dual-core 1.5 GHz, PureView camera and wireless recharging.

As everyone anticipated, Nokia decided to keep the design lines introduced by Nokia N9 and Lumia 900 for its new line-up of Windows Phone 8 terminals, therefore, Nokia Lumia 920 has as a unibody case made of glossy policarbonate.

The new Nokia Lumia 920 also sports a display using a technology named PureMotionHD+, which is actually an improved version of the ClearBlack touch panels. As a matter of fact, we are talking about an 4.5-inch IPS TFT display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels.

The PureMotion HD+ display comes with automatic brightness adjustment depending on the ambient light, but also with better visibility under the direct sunlight. As well, the Super Sensitive Touch feature allows the user to maneuver the touchscreen using gloves, thanks to a technology developed by Synaptics.

The hardware platform is also impressive and we expect the Windows Phone 8 to run smoothly on it. Nokia Lumia 920 comes with a dual-core Qaulcomm Snapdragons S4 Plus chipset clocked at 1.5GHz, Adreno 225 GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB for data storage and 7 GB of free storage on SkyDrive, Microsoft’s cloud storage service. You might be surprised by the lack of the microSD card slot (WP8 has support for this feature), but the design of the device probably didn’t allowed this function.

The camera boasts about the PureView branding, the technology introduced on Nokia 808, the cameraphone with 41 megapixel sensor. You should also know that instead of the 41 megapixel sensor of the 808 model, Nokia Lumia 920 comes with an 8.7 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, improved performance in low lighting conditions, faster shutter times, Carl Zeiss lens, optical image stabilization and full HD video recording support.

The connectivity options bring 3G (up to 42 Mbps supported), LTE (where available), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 3.1 and microUSB 2.0.

Least, but not last the Nokia Lumia 920 can be recharged wirelessly using the stations launched by Nokia or using any other adapters available on the market, since the terminal is compatible with the Qi standard.

The Windows Phone 8-powered smartphone weighs in 185 grams, being 52 grams heavier than Samsung Galaxy S3 or with 45 grams heavier than iPhone 4S. It will be nice to see whether this will become an impediment in the day-by-day use.

The the Nokia World 2012 event, the Finland-based phone maker also announced a refresh of the proprietary Windows Phone 8 applications with Nokia City Lens (shows the restaurants, clubs, bars near your location), Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps among them.

Unfortunately, Nokia haven’t provided the details regarding the availability of Nokia Lumia 920, nor about the price of the device.

The new Windows Phone 8 Nokia flagship will definitely receive good reviews for its design, and if the display and the camera are truly delivering the calmed improvements compared to the specifications of the rival smartphones, then the Fins might lure in a lot of customers.

For Nokia, the success (or the failure) of Lumia 920 is very important, as many voices are claiming that this the company’s final bet, allowing the Finns to stay at the table of the big players of the smartphone market after the failure called Symbian.
