Now one the biggest expectations with the Lumia 920 camera was that it will have a PureView camera like the PureView 808’s 41-megapixel camera. Unlike the PureView 808, the Lumia 920 features a 8.7-megapixel camera with the PureView branding, however this time around the camera is not using the pixel oversampling technique heralded in the PureView 808, but sports a floating lens technology. Nokia claims this technology improves low-light performance by ten times without flash and stabilizes motion blur while shooting videos.
With the Lumia 920, Nokia is using a 2,000 mAh battery that supports wireless charging using the Qi standard. Nokia has introduced the FatBoy Pillow wireless charger to facilitate this.
Nokia will ship the Lumia 920 with Nokia Maps, and other custom applications like the augmented reality app City Lens. The Lumia 920 will be available in five colors – Yellow, Red, Grey, White and Black. Nokia will release the device later this year and will announce the pricing at the same time.
