New Nokia Windows 8 phones debut tomorrow
Leaks galore surrounding Nokia’s new line of Windows 8 phones have been bubbling to the surface over the last week. The line, which will include the Lumia 820 and 920, is expected to be unveiled tomorrow during a press event held by the company. Lots of storage and a snappy camera lead the features.
The new phone, a photo of which was leaked to Twitter on Friday, packs “industry-first” photo abilities, but not the same PureView capabilities found on the company’s 42-megapixel 808 camera, a source told.
The PureView is not Windows 8 enabled and, depending on what you want to use it for, looks either like a slim, powerful camera or a bulky phone with a little lens on it.
Lumia 920 wireless charging support will be provided via an inductive method — lining the device up to the contacts on a charging pad. We’re told it will support the Qi wireless power standard — making it compatible with other wireless charging products. Aside from the charging aspect, Nokia’s Lumia 920 will also include 32GB of device storage, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. We have also been able to confirm that it will include a 4.5-inch HD display.
Now the real mystery: will anybody buy it?
