More details emerge for Nokia Lumia 920
04 Sep 2012
Wireless charging likely to be a headline feature
We are just a day away from the official Nokia event and the details of its new mobile phone range are literally pouring out. Last week, we got a glimpse of the Nokia Lumia 920 (PureView) and Lumia 820, along with initial details. Now we have a more in-depth breakdown of the Lumia 920, along with a rather intriguing new feature.
In terms of the latter, we are now being told that the latest Lumia will come equipped with a magnetic strip on the back, allowing it to be charged without the need for a plug-in charger. Of course, you'll need to plug in the charging pad at some point, but you get the idea. This will be a headline grabber.
It is also said to support the Qi wireless power standard, making it compatible with other wireless products. An image of the charger and phone leaked on Twitter yesterday (3 September), which you can see above. Is it real? We hope so, as both phone and charger look pretty sharp.
Aside from that, the specification has now been firmed up, with the latest reports claiming the Lumia 920 will come with 32GB of device storage, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. A 4.5-inch HD display was mentioned previously.
As for the PureView part, that sounds like it's happening, but not to the extremes of the Nokia 808 PureView. This one will have a more modest eight-megapixel camera on board, throwing in some enhancements to image stabilisation and camera software. The front of the device will also feature a 1.3-megapixel camera.
Launch expected this week, with sales due to commence in October or November. Hopefully we will have that confirmed tomorrow too.
