Nokia unveils new Lumia flagships

Wednesday, 5 September 2012

Nokia unveils new Lumia flagshipsNokia has used their press event today to unveil two new flagships, the Lumia 820 and 920.

As rumored, the new devices will come with new features like wireless charging, and "true offline" navigation, as well as the new Windows Phone 8 operating system.

Jo Harlow, EVP at Nokia, introduced the phones today at the press event in NYC. Adds Harlow: "We've taken several steps in the last 18 months and today we're ready to take the next step. The Lumia 920 is a smartphone experience so immersive that you'll never want to put it down."

The 920 has a nice 4.5-inch TrueBlack display and a fast dual-core S4 Snapdragon processor. The phone also offers a curved glass display just like the Lumia 800 before it. A new addition to Windows Phone is a microSD slot. Always fans of nice cameras, Nokia brought the PureView software from its 808 phone, adding that the camera catches 10x more light than other smartphones, making it ideal for dark shots.

A new feature is 'City Lens,' an augmented reality piece of software that 'overlays details about nearby points of interest or businesses onto the phone's display - providing information including reviews, ratings and contact information for nearby shops or restaurants at a glance,' says ZD.

On the navigation side, the 920 brings the completely offline maps, and adds walking directions between all public transportation locations.

The 2000mAh battery uses wireless charging based on the Qi interoperability standards. Nokia has partnered with a retailer to create the 'recharge pillow,' which will go on sale too.

On the budget side, the 820 will have a smaller 4.3-inch display and a smaller battery.

The phones are expected to go on sale at the end of October.
