Nokia Lumia 920 officially unveiled

Nokia has revealed its latest flagship Windows Phone 8 handset, the Nokia Lumia 920.

As rumoured, the new handset sports a curved 4.5in WXGA LCD screen, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and runs the latest Windows Phone 8 software. But the key feature is its 8.7MP camera, which has optical image stabilisation to help ensure less blurry shots in low light conditions. The stabilisation also works with video recording, ensuring smooth video capture.

Nokia also makes some grand claims about the phone’s screen, dubbing it Puremotion HD. It has smart polarisers for reducing glare, and will react to different lighting conditions, changing colour tone and brightness to optimise your viewing experience.

The phone will also include Nokia’s map software that has an offline mode for full mapping services when you have no signal. This is bolstered by a new augmented reality feature called City Lens which lets you project mapping features onto the world around you, like with Google StreetView.

Powering the lot along is a 2000mAh battery, which Nokia claims should easily last a day. The phone also has built in wireless charging for an easy cableless life.

Sporting the same styling and buils as the Nokia Lumia 800, Nokia is keen to point out this is a premium feeling phone. Considering how much we loved the design of the Lumia 800, we don’t doubt them.

Along with its cheaper sibling the Nokia Lumia 820, the Lumia 920 will be available this year, though Nokia hasn’t yet given exact dates or prices.
