Nokia announce the Lumia 920 & Lumia 820 running Windows Phone 8


Espoo, Finland and New York, USA – Nokia today announced the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820, the first devices in Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 range.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, including the latest advances in Nokia PureView imaging innovation. Using advanced floating lens technology, the camera in the Nokia Lumia 920 is able to take in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash, making it possible to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken.

“Nokia PureView continues to deliver cutting-edge technology to make it possible for a smartphone camera to take the kind of images usually only seen on a standalone SLR camera,” said Jo Harlow, executive vice president of Nokia Smart Devices. “With the Nokia Lumia 920 we have made it possible to shoot pictures and video at home, outdoors, in a restaurant or even at night, and come out with professional-looking results.”

“We view imaging as a core area for differentiation in the smartphone space,” said Crawford Del Prete, Executive VP WW Products and Chief Research Officer, IDC. “Low light photography has been a weak point for smartphones. Nokia has addressed this with PureView to create real customer value. By applying its rich expertise in imaging Nokia has created a best of breed experience for everyday use.”

Nokia will be holding a press event later today where we are expected to see the first working Windows Phone 8 device from them. Thanks to recent leaks it would appear that we will get to see the Lumia 920 and 820 in a whole host of colours.

With Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft it will be interesting to see what new features they will be bringing to the platform that wont be available with other manufactures. On the Windows Phone 7.5 devices we clearly had the likes of Nokia Drive and Music, just to name a couple. Will there me more with WP8 I wonder?
