If the tweets of one @evleaks can be trusted (and they have been in the past), Nokia’s new flagship phone for the launch of Windows Phone 8 will be the Lumia 920. It’s a 4.5-inch screen smartphone with a PureView camera, and like many Nokia phones before it, will be available in a variety of colour options.
PureView is a Nokia technology we’ve seen on a couple of their smartphones before, but none of them have been anywhere near this compact. PureView uses a pixel oversampling technology to take gigantic resolution photos, and save them in a smaller resolution, which allows for lossless zooming. Earlier PureView devices, like the Nokia 808 PureView, have had bulky camera sections due to the enormous 41-megapixel sensor. Nokia may have found a way to trim the PureView tech down, though, as the Lumia 920 is looking pretty svelte.
Other specs are still a mystery at this point, but we’ll probably hear more at the joint press conference Nokia and Microsoft are holding in New York City next week. There’s a pretty limited range of things Nokia and Microsoft have to talk about together, and we’re betting the Windows Phone 8 lineup is the main one.
