With Nokia's official launch event for its first Windows Phone 8 handsets just a couple of days away, some of you may be wondering what will be left for the company to announce on Wednesday. A steady stream of leaks has let the cat out of the bag on what the new handsets will look like, as well as some key features of the upcoming devices.
Earlier today, we reported that the flagship Lumia 920 handset is expected to include a PureView camera and wireless charging, among other features. A new image released via the @evleaks Twitter account now reveals what the Lumia Charging Pad will look like:
A second image more clearly shows off the two new Windows Phone 8 handsets, side-by-side:
It's particularly interesting to note that these images apparently indicate that both the 820 and 920 will support wireless charging, contrary to the earlier report via The Verge, which hinted that this feature would be exclusive to the flagship device.
Curiously, while the red Lumia 820 has a red Charging Pad to match, the yellow Lumia 920 is seen hovering over a red pad too - could this indicate that colour options for the Charging Pads will be limited? Additionally, those with keen eyes might also note that the new-look Start Screen on the renders includes an outdated SkyDrive tile (the SkyDrive logo in the pics above has been replaced with a simpler version that does without the Windows Live 'swoosh' around it).
Whether this undermines the authenticity of the images - or merely hints at some sloppy Photoshopping by Nokia's marketing team - remains to be seen... but while there are still plenty of questions that remain unanswered, at least we don't have long to wait.
