Nokia Lumia 920 And 820 Are Official
Nokia has uncovered two smartphones. One of them is designed for a high-end market, while the second one will be at taste of mid-range smartphone users. They are the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820, respectively. So let’s get acquainted with their selling points.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is a LTE-enabled smartphone with an amazing specs list that will gild any device. The phone sports a 4.5-inch HD display at a resolution of 1280×768 pixels with a record rate of pixel density, 332ppi, and a high-brightness mode of 600 nits. Besides such attractive description, the screen is also powered with ClearBlack Display technology, and a novelty called PureMotion HD+. This is a new super sensitive screen technology that allows users to do several basic things with their smartphones when wearing gloves. That’s why introducing this functionality Nokia’s own Kevin Shields put on a pair of bright red mittens and took control over his Nokia Lumia 920.
The second most attractive feature of the Nokia Lumia 920 is its 8MP camera, and though we had been waiting for a 21MP snapper, Nokia still has no plans to power its smartphones with such large lens. On the whole, we know Nokia’s PureView technology can support up to 41MP lens, so there is no need to make the company pack such handsets with larger lens and set higher price tags. The 8.7MP camera of this phone is capable of doing almost all the same things what the Nokia 808 PureView does. I mean with the help of this camera you can take perfect photos as well, though there will be no need to group many pixels in one for less image size, or because of less camera lens consumers can’t use lossless zooming capabilities. These changes have been possible to implement thanks to PureView Phase 2 tech. Moreover, there is only one LED flash, though many were waiting for a Xenon flash. But camera gurus are sure that massive level of development in LEDs is really closing the gap. Development is at a much higher rate than xenon.
The Nokia Lumia 920 also is equipped with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, microSD card slot, 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage, a 2000mAh battery that provides up to 10 hours of talk time in 3G.
Being a NFC enabled smartphone the Nokia Lumia 920 can work with m any appropriate apps and accessories like YouSendIt or Michelin 2012 and JBL retro boombox speaker, respectively. At the end, the wireless charging was confirmed also, and Nokia demonstrated the Fatboy-branded recharge pillow.
Unlike the Nokia Lumia 920 its junior brother sports weaker features like a 4.3-inch 480×800 touchscreen with a new iteration of ClearBlack Display tech, though this screen sports that super sensitive feature as well. The phone also packs an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss Optics and dual-LED flash (no PureView support), a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in memory, 7GB of SkyDrive storage, a VGA camera on the front, and it support LTE and HSAP+.
The Nokia Lumia 820 will be available in six colors– red, yellow, grey, cyan, purple, white and black. Its back panel can be removed and replaced with another one. Both smartphone run Windows Phone 8.
