Just as the report goes that Nokia would release its first Windows Phone 8 flagship smartphones on the September 5th event, on the September 5th event, Nokia didn’t disappoint us, by bringing out the its first brand-new Windows Phone 8, Nokia Lumia 920, which was once reported to be codenamed as Nokia Phi. Being the first flagship of Nokia adopting WP 8 as operating system, the Lumia 920 comes with various eye-catching features, among which the powerful Pureview camera has been the centerpiece.
Though the PureView camera doesn't have the same whopping 41-megapixel sensor found on Nokia's 808 PureView Symbian phone, the sensor in the Lumia 920 is a more typical 8.7 megapixels. Nokia claims that the 920's camera captures five-to-ten times more light than other phone cameras, which makes it better at shooting photos indoors or in low lighting, which was a major issue with Nokia's Lumia 800 and 900 phones, which struggled in those situations. Also, a 1.2-megapixel HD camera is up front for video chatting. The Lumia 920's camera also has so-called “floating-lens” technology for image stabilization. The floating lens is particularly beneficial for video because it minimizes the erratic shaking found in some other smartphone cameras. Well, without doubt, with the Nokia Lumia 920 Pureview camera, users could get even better picture and video shooting experience.
Along with its outstanding camera, the Nokia Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch curved glass display with 1280-pixel-by-768-pixel resolution. To take advantage of new screen-resolution possibilities in Windows Phone 8, the Lumia 920 has a “Pure Motion HD+” display. Nokia says the screen offers blur-free scrolling and enhancements to sunlight readability, so the phone can react to minimize sunlight glare. We can be sure that the screen would produce even better experience for users to watch HD movie on Lumia 920.
Besides, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM inside the Lumia 920 would definitely provide a smooth and fast system reacting. Users could enjoy an even better user experience. The internal 32GB memory storage would be large enough for you to store files. If you still feel not enough, take it easy. Nokia also announced more advanced features for this flagship, including: built-in wireless charging, Nokia Maps for navigation, NFC (Near Field Communication), and of course the Windows Phone 8 operating system.
Nokia Lumia 920 played a very important role on the Nokia September 5th event. But it’s not the only one that Nokia brings to us. In addition to release of Lumia 920, Nokia also announced the Lumia 820, which has a 4.3-inch, 800-pixel-by-480-pixel resolution display (without curved glass), a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics (not PureView), a VGA front-facing camera, 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
