The Nokia Lumia 920 will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system as revealed by its Finnish manufacturer last month. Apparently, it is an incremental upgrade of the company’s flagship this year, the Nokia Lumia 900.
The announcement about Lumia 920 emerged following reports that the current version will not be upgraded to the latest mobile OS due to some conflicts with the hardware. While it requires so many resources to produce a new device the same year as the flagship is released, it is a necessary move for the company knowing the current version may not make an appeal to Windows Phone aficionados as well as to tech enthusiasts who are always on the lookout for new updates.
While the reports are said to be legit, there is no information as to the pricing of the device but apparently, it will be competing with other devices in the high-end market. After all, it bears Microsoft’s latest OS that built so much buzz in tech communities. Nokia has yet to make a statement about it.
Nokia Lumia 920 will come with Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon chipset with a dual-core Krait clocked at 1.5GHz and an Adreno 225 graphics processor that powers its 4.5 inches IPS TFT touchscreen. It offers up to 768 x 1280 pixels resolution or around 332ppi density featuring PureMotion HD+ technology.
A 1GB RAM has also been given to complement its powerful processor. But it seems like owners will have to stick with its 32GB internal memory because there is no microSD card slot. Nonetheless, it has enough memory for storage.
Many actually expected to be getting 12 megapixels camera from it but Nokia failed in this aspect by providing 8MP sensor. However, it compensated it by using Carl Zeiss optics lens plus the optical image stabilization technology.
Nokia Lumia 920 has a massive battery with 2000mAh that could power it up to 17 hours of talk time over 2G network or 10 hours on 3G. For browsing and gaming, we might be able to expect around 8 hours of straight entertainment using this device. The point is, Windows Phone 8 is so stable and a lot of bugs have been fixed to help make the battery life last longer.
So far, Nokia is getting a lot of positive feedback from hopeful owners knowing the device is stuffed with lots of features and comes with hundreds of bug fixes. Basically, the bugs that could be experienced by owners when using Lumia 900 would be found in this device. But we will be able to know this device so well when it’s released in November.
