At their press conference in New York, Nokia made their new Windows Phone 8 device official. They made it clear, they want to be different and “disrupt” the market and they are doing it with the Lumia 920 (shown off in a bright yellow color), the new flagship Windows Phone from Nokia. Nokia’s packed in a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual-core Processor and a PureView Image sensor. With the 8-megapixel PureView sensor, users will be able to take advantage HD video and images. Nokia claims the camera on the 920 takes pictures better than any other smartphone on the market. The Nokia Lumia 920 takes in 5 to 10x more light than other smartphones and with “Floating Len Technology,” it provides better image stabilization than some digital SLR’s. The 920 also features 2,000mAh battery with wireless charging, built right in, no need to buy a third party accessory. It also provides 30% better battery life than the 900. Nokia has even partnered with companies like Virgin Atlantic and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to offer charging stations in airports and coffee shops.
Nokia is big on navigation and maps and with the Lumia 920, users will have access to full offline maps, not just partial caching. Voice guided, turn-by-turn navigation is also included. Nokia also added “City Lens” to their map application, it’s like a AR layered browser for maps. Users can now explore a city, even one they are familiar with and find new hidden gems they might have never known about.
With Nokia PureMotion HD+, images on screen are clearer and free of blurry scrolling. Instead of using ClearBlack technology for their display, Nokia is now using a new tech, ClearBright on a 4.5-inch “curved” display. With this new display, the screen detects the sun and brightness and will change the color on screen to always provide a more vibrant and colorful image.
-New Windows Phone 8 features, screenshots has been added. By pressing the power button and home button, similar to how it works on the iPhone, uses can now take a shot of their screens.
-Included new technology called “Super Sensitive Touch” which means the display can tell if you’re using your bare fingers or wearing gloves and react accordingly. Must be a big problem in Espoo, Finland.
