As teasers are being watched for Nokia’s new flagship handset worldwide, the excitement for Windows Phone 8 has also exploded and most people are looking forward to the announcement tomorrow, on September 5th, where Nokia will introduce its flagship Windows Phone 8 device, the Lumia 920, at a special event with Microsoft.
We’ve seen a lot of leaks of the Lumia 920 as-of-late, but The Verge reports that it has managed to confirm those images to the device’s existence itself. We can confirm that the device will be a very high end device. Sources close to the manufacturing and designing of the device state that Nokia will introduce wireless charging with the Lumia 920.
The wireless charger
The image above shows off what the charging pad will look like an also gives off an impression of how it’ll work. We believe the Lumia-sized charge pad lead connects to a USB port where it’ll charge through that. The Verge was told that the Lumia 920 itself will support the Qi wireless power standard; making it compatible with other wireless charging products – meaning buying replacement chargers will not be a problem, should users need one.
A colorful line-up
The Lumia will also be available in the five colors above, which is definitely an interesting and vibrant set of colors. Slightly unrelated is a purple Lumia 820 which you can see in the rear view press shot below:
We did say that the device would be quite the little powerhouse, and by that we can expect the Nokia Lumia 920 to ship with 32GB of device storage, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The device will also sport a 4.5-inch HD display.
But what about PureView?
The Lumia 920 will feature a decent 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and the front of the device will also include a 1.3-megapixel camera. The device will still be branded a PureView camera. Sure the 41-megapixel camera on the Nokia 808 PureView wipes the floor with the Lumia 920’s, but an 8-megapixel camera is decent enough to take good quality pictures. Nokia is focusing on marketing the Lumia 920 as PureView because recently, the company has made some huge advancements in image stabilization and camera software which will be quite the treat for users when the device is released.
We're expecting Nokia to announce the device on Wednesday with a launch date of October or early November, but we’ll find out everything we need to know, tomorrow.
