Nokia announces the Lumia 920

As expected, Nokia in its event in New York announced it’s new flagship phone called the Lumia 920. The 920 packs most of the features and specs we’ve heard rumored for weeks over the interwebs. As the successor to the Lumia 900, the 920 will include the following specs:

  • 4.5 or 4.65” HD AMOLED Display with ClearBlack technology
  • NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, expandable memory
  • Wireless Inductive charging
  • 8MP Carl-Zeiss rear camera with PureView technology, 2MP front-facing camera
  • Dual-core 1.5GHz CPU
  • 1GB of RAM, 32GB of storage

Other noteworthy features in Windows Phone 8 include the ability to take screenshots, Nokia City Lens, CNN iReport integration, and specialized PureView camera lenses. Nokia was big on its PureView camera touting how “the technology reacts to the minute movements in your hand to balance the lens.” This PureView camera technology first debuted in the Symbian-powered Pureview 808. The Finnish company also promised users will be able to “launch Nokia Drive for free voice navigation out of the box,” along with offline usage of maps as well.

The Finnish manufacturer did its best to wow us with its top-of-the-line offering, the Nokia Lumia 920. Now that PureView has arrived in Windows Phone, would you be more likely to grab the 920 over an Android handset or even the new iPhone?
