Nokia revealed its first smartphones to run the next version of Windows, a big step for a company that has bet its future on an alliance with Microsoft challenging market leaders Apple and Google.
Nokia Corp.'s new flagship phone is the Lumia 920, which runs Windows Phone 8. It has also unveiled a cheaper, mid-range phone, the Lumia 820 which doesn't have the special camera lenses and some other features.
Packing a 1.5GHz dual-core chip, a 4.5-inch curved glass display, a version of Nokia's PureView camera technology and some very colourful case colours, Nokia, in what may be their last major shot, tries to reclaim a market lost to Apple, Samsung and Google.
The Nokia Lumia 920 features a 4.5 inch PureMotion HD+ WXGA IPS LCD touchscreen display that features a resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels, and the display also features Nokia’s ClearBlack technology which is designed to make the screen easier to read in sunlight.
Nokia 920 is powered by a dual core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
There's also 1GB of RAM, along with 32GB of on-board storage space- plus 7GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage space.
Nokia maintains its long life battery(2,000mAh) plus it features built in wireless charging which will allow you to charge your device with a new Nokia wireless accessory.
The Lumia 920 comes with an 8.7 megapixel camera with Nokia PureView technology, which features a Carl Zeiss lens and advanced optical imagining that is designed to provide better photos and video.
There is also a front facing 1.2 megapixel camera on the front of the Nokia Lumia 920 which is capable of 720p video.
Nokia did not announce where exactly the 920 will launch or when, saying only that it's expected to start shipping "later in the year". Also there is no word on pricing, but it is expected that its price would be reasonable and in accordance with value of money.
