Nokia Lumia 920 Announced

Nokia reenters the high-end smartphone competition and I guess its main rivals are shaking, because what the Finnish has introduced deserves applause. I don’t want to play with your nerves, so let’s take a look at the key features of the Nokia Lumia 920 high-end smartphone, because there are much to talk about.

Firstly, the Nokia Lumia 920 sports a 4.5-inch HD touchscreen with a resolution of 1280×768 pixels. But saying only this means not to say anything, because this display is powered with a special technology called PureMotion HD+, which has been added to smooth blur-free scrolling on the curved glass display. As Nokia says, it’s the “fastest LCD display”, with up to 2.5 times faster refresh rate and new super sensitive touch technology, that allows you to use it with gloves. Probably, this feature won’t be important for Californians, but say Finns must be very happy for it. During the show Kevin Shields put on a pair of bright red mittens and unlocked his Lumia 920 with no effort, then he accessed the call log and made a couple other ordinary things. I mean this technology really works. Plus, Nokia has designed this display with a new iteration of its ClearBlack Display technology, which will give the best visibility under the sunlight. At the end, the Lumia 920’s super screen comes with a pixel density of 332ppi and a high-brightness mode of 600 nits.

Secondly, though Nokia has packed the Lumia 920 with only8MP lens, the latter supports PureView technology. Talking more precisely, the phone works on a new technology called PureView Phase 2. All in all, the Nokia Lumia 920 does the same things with its 8MP camera like what the Nokia 808 PureView does with its 41MP camera. I mean the former one also can group pixels together  and make one super pixel out of the different information in several adjacent, though there are no lossless zooming capabilities. One of the advantages is a unique image stabilization tech woven inside. It’s called “floating lens” and is akin to optical image stabilization in SLRs. Unfortunately, there is only one LED flash, and no Xenon one, though some camera gurus, say Damian Dinning are shure LED is better because it’s higher rate than Xenon flash.

Thirdly, the Nokia Lumia 920 sports many high-end features, though we must admit they can be found on other high-end smartphones as well. Anyway, it comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset with LTE radio to boot, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory plus 7GB of SkyDrive cloud storage, and a 2000mAh, which is capable to keep your phone alive up to 10 hours when you are talking in 3G mode.

  

  

  

Other than that, the Nokia Lumia 920 will support wireless charging, and during the event there was introduced the Fatboy -branded recharge pillow. Virgin Atlantic is Nokia’s first partner in this area, and it will launch wireless charging plates for Nokia 920, as well as a chain of coffee shops.

Besides it the Nokia Lumia 920 will be launched alongside with many NFC accessories like the JBL retro boombox speaker designed especially for this handset.

As for software, the phone runs Windows Phone 8, and there will be many amazing apps like Angry Birds Roost, YouSendIt which will also be a three-month exclusive an NFC travel app from Michelin will let you retrieve tailored info at Michelin 2012 NFC enabled restaurants and many other NFC-enabled goodies.
