Finnish phone-maker, Nokia, finally revealed its Windows Phone 8 flagship on Wednesday, September 5th, in a bid to create a buzz over its new devices before Apple attracts all media when it launches iPhone 5. While Nokia Lumia 920 comes with many features that couldn’t be found in Lumia 900, they look pretty much the same except that the new one has a bigger 4.5-inch display.
If there is something in this phone that Nokia is so proud about, that would be the display. Those who were hoping it would come with AMOLED technology they’ll be disappointed because the company made use of a newer technology called PureMotion HD+. It will automatically adjust screen color and brightness when brought in places with different ambient light.
Another special feature Nokia Lumia 920 offers is its camera that has PureView technology branding. While not all tech enthusiasts are into smartphones that offer high quality photos, PureView actually became popular as the Finnish company started promoting it early this year with 41 megapixels sensor. The sound of it actually sets a wrong impression and the fact that Nokia Lumia 920 only features 8MP camera, it might disappoint people who have been expecting more.
However, this smartphone comes with new stabilization technology that Nokia calls “floating lens.” According to the manufacturer, it is way better than other stabilization technologies used in many digital cameras and smartphones. Of course, Carl Zeiss optics is among the features that would complete the list for Lumia 920.
